DiSC Role Behavior Analysis
The RBA provides specific DiSC behavioral statements for defining, clarifying, describing, and discussing expectations for role behavior. It uses the DiSC system to collect and process perceptions of the behavioral expectations of “how” a job, position, or role needs to be fulfilled to achieve maximum effectiveness. These perceptions are based on the role, not the person in the role. The RBA focuses on “how” the role needs to be fulfilled regardless of who is in the role.
