DiSC® & You
Understanding your DiSC® style increases your opportunities to connect with others faster and on a deeper level. This is a benefit when you are responsible for the outcome of a team or when managing a project. Your unique qualities are a combination of natural traits as well as skills and knowledge acquired over time along with your willingness to adapt to change. When you understand an individual’s style, you can become a better mentor, coach, or even a better leader. So what is DiSC® really?
What is DiSC®?
For the most part, your personality traits tend to enhance your effectiveness. Each DiSC®style –Dominance: “D”, influence: “i”, Steadiness: “S” or Conscientiousness: “C” – has different needs and motivating factors. If our needs are being met, the easier it is for each style (individual) to perform at an optimal level.
So what are those needs? How can you know if you or your team can perform at an optimal level?
Breaking Down Each Style
Imagine being able to understand others so well that you know exactly where they will function best? As a leader, DiSC®will help you to increase productivity, morale, and know what incentives will work best. All the traits that you previously had to wait to understand can come together that much easier. No more trial and error, or personality clashes among your staff!
It’s not nearly as complicated as you may believe. For example:
- D’s tend to want results quickly
- i’s like to talk through ideas,
- S’s may want to listen and help others on projects, while
- C’s want both details and clear deadlines.
