What Are The DiSC Styles?
When you undergo a DiSC assessment, you will discover a great deal about yourself and how you interact with others. Through understanding your predominant behavioral style, you’ll understand your strengths and weaknesses, and how to interact with others to create more meaningful connections. Here at SN Group, we are proud to help people discover which of the DiSC styles fits them best.
Here we offer just a brief description of the four styles and how they may affect your choices in the workplace:
“D”- Dominance: People predominantly using this behavioral style prioritize getting immediate results, taking action, and challenging self and others. They’re motivated by power and authority, competition, and winning. They fear losing control, being taken advantage of, and being vulnerable. You might notice they are self confident, direct, forceful, and often take risks. They can be limited by their lack of concern for others, their impatience, and their insensitivity.
“I”- Influence: People predominantly using this behavioral style prioritize expressing enthusiasm, taking action, and encouraging collaboration. They’re motivated by social recognition, group activities, and friendly relationships. They fear social rejection, disapproval, loss of influence, and being ignored. You might notice they are charming, enthusiastic, sociable, optimistic, and talkative. They can be limited by their impulsiveness, their lack of follow-through, and their disorganization.
“S”- Steadiness: People predominantly using this behavioral style prioritize giving support, maintaining stability, and creating enjoyable collaborations. They’re motivated by stable environments, sincere appreciation, cooperation, and finding opportunities to help. They fear loss of stability, change, loss of harmony, and offending others. You might notice they are patient, team players, calm, good listeners, and humble. They can be limited by their tendency to avoid change and be overly accommodating, and their indecisiveness.
“C”- Conscientiousness: People predominantly using this behavioral style prioritize ensuring accuracy, maintaining quality, and challenging assumptions. They’re motivated by opportunities to use their expertise or gain knowledge, and their attention to quality. They fear criticism, slipshod methodology, and being wrong. You might notice they are precise, analytical, skeptical, reserved, and quiet. They can be limited by their tendency to overanalyze and be overly critical, and by their need to isolate themselves.
None of the DiSC styles are better or worse than any other, but they do all require different approaches to shore up their weaknesses and exploit their strengths.
