The DiSC® Classic DVD is the video companion to the DiSC Classic Facilitation System. However, it can also be easily incorporated into your existing DiSC training. The DiSC Classic DVD includes closed captioning and provides over one hour of new training video in 68 individually selectable segments.

The DiSC Classic DVD offers multiple viewing options for each of its four sections: Pure Styles, The Meeting, Effective Communication, and Natural Styles.
Pure Styles This section features four characters who represent the purest form of each of the four DiSC styles. Each person is shown in five separate segments. The characters describe themselves (and ultimately their styles) by giving an overview of their behaviors and describing basic aspects of themselves.
The five segments are the following:
- Preferred Environment
- In Conflict
The Pure Styles section can be viewed in several different ways to best meet your training objectives and the needs of your audience. It can be viewed by character if you’d like your audience to get a lot of information about a particular DiSC style or styles. It can be viewed by segment if you’d like to provide a comparison of the styles. Or you can take an a la carte approach — choosing any segment of any character and playing it individually.
This section consists of six independent scenes showing a team in conflict, a manager meeting with individual team members to work through the conflict, and a more effective team meeting as a result. This section is particularly effective for helping managers to recognize the needs of their employees and discover how to manage each style.
This section features communication between peers. The scenario is an HR manager recruiting sales people for a new division. He meets with four sales managers representing each of the DiSC styles. You’ll see two interactions, one ineffective and one effective, between the HR manager and each sales manager. The interactions are successful or unsuccessful based on the degree to which he tailors his communication style to the needs of each person.
The Natural Styles section illustrates the complexity of the styles as they appear in the real world. It allows participants to understand and appreciate the subtlety of behavior and human interaction. In this section, people of all four DiSC styles give informal, unscripted responses to eight questions. You’ll also see an unscripted conversation between two opposite styles and a people-reading exercise.
Comprehensive Viewing Manual Included
Along with your DiSC Classic DVD, you’ll receive a comprehensive Viewing Manual. The manual provides an overview of the video content and step-by-step facilitation suggestions for each section. You’ll learn how to use the video segments in a variety of classroom exercises, including the following:
- Setting learning objectives for a seminar
- Introducing participants to the DiSC styles
- Helping participants read the DiSC styles of others
