The DISC profile can be used in a variety of ways but one of the main things is its ability to create reflection about yourself and your prefernces in relation to your current jobs and future career. Sometimes you may allready be aware of some of the elements uncoverered by the profile and the feedback and sometimes you may be suprpised by the findings - ultimately you should be able to pinpoint certain aspects of yourself better after having received the feedback.
STRENGHTEN YOUR COLLABORATION
The DISC profile can also assist you in relation to improving your collaboration with your colleagues - getting to know how other people respond to your profile and how your profile responds to them is a key aspect in ensuring proper communication, well defined roles and common understanding in a research group fx.

RELEVANT ORGANISATIONS Trade unions (e.g. DM, DJØF, or IDA): Trade unions act and negotiate on your behalf to secure you the best possible salary level and working conditions. Being a member of a trade union is not obligated by law, but it is very common and can provide you with a series of employment- and career-related legal support and services you may need such as guidance regarding individual employment contract, salary, and industrial accidents and injuries. Your choice of trade union depends on your educational background and workplace.
Having unemployment insurance is generally a good idea. Trade unions are associated with unemployment insurance funds, but in order to sign up you are not obligated to become a member of a trade union.

Thank you for the session. It was great to meet you, and thanks for asking the right questions ( you let me thinking about many things).
I believe this DISC assessment will improve how I communicate with others and make me aware of certain traits from other types that I would like to strengthen on my own personality.
MARIA CAMILA RINCÓN GIL (PHD STUDENT DEPARTMENT OF MATERIALS AND PRODUCTION):
I had never tried a tool like the DISC profile before. I found it very useful to get to know myself better and reflect on what is important for me in the next steps of my career. The discussion was great to start drafting a career development strategy for the immediate future as well as to identify some points I could improve to become a better professional and team mate. Very recommendable – also for those at an early stage of their PhD journey·
