I use a pretty standard process for recruitment. First you start with an overall organizational profile that defines your "brand" or identity. Then you determine the attributes and skills necessary for a given position and a given team.
My experience is that you hire and manage "whole people". Someone can have great technical skills, but not be a good fit for the team. We often build teams as well that replicate the same strengths and development needs, not enough diversity or complementary skill sets.
I think using assessments whether DISC or others is valuable. The caution is use them appropriately and don''t rely on any one part of a process unilaterally. A good selection process combines comprehensively scoping the position, assessing candidates for "fit" using metrics and interviews, and a good onboarding process.
Hire Hard- Manage Easy!
