The Four DISC profiles in a nutshell:
D = Dominant Drivers
Confident but closed. Bottom line results-focused. Visionary, ambitious, blunt, can be seen as arrogant.
I = Influencing Socialisers
Open, outgoing, people-focused, warm, chatty, positive, caring, enthusiastic, scatty, poor timekeepers.
S = Steady Relaters
Reserved, people-focused, team players, calm, great at support roles, don’t like change, like clarity and step by step instructions.
C = Conscientious Cautious Thinkers
Reserved, task-focused, analytical, love lots of detail, high standards, do things by the book, like clear instructions, can be seen as “anal” by profiles with lower attention to detail!
We are all a combination of the above but tend to be higher in one or two areas.
The way that we interact, build rapport, sell to and manage each of the four profiles is very different. DISC helps you to recognise the profile of the person you are dealing with, so you can adapt and communicate with them in the way they like to communicate.
DISC is a passion of mine and I could talk about it all day, but as these blogs are designed to be read within 2 minutes, I'd best stop here for today! Over the next week, I'll go through how to get the best out of each profile. I honestly believe DISC is the most important thing I've ever learned!
