The Power of DiSC
You learn how others think and behave, which might be quite different from you. And that means you can adapt your style to others, when that’s important. Having the flexibility to deal with different people according to their style is a great strength.
DiSC is a rich and intuitive model made up of four basic styles:
- D (Dominance)
- i (influence)
- S (Steadiness)
- C (Conscientious)
Each style has its own traits and behaviours; all styles have advantages and potential drawbacks.
Everyone is a mix of all four DiSC styles—usually one or two styles stand out.
Unlike simple personality tests, there is no perfect DiSC style.
Since everybody has a unique behavioural profile, people are walking around all over the planet with different styles and priorities.
