Have you ever had a professional conversation that made you feel unsure or uneasy? 86% of corporate workers believe that ineffective communication is the main reason for workplace failure. Ineffective communication reduces productivity, increases the difficulty of interaction, and inhibits building trust and relationships.
DISC is a simple model framework based on a person’s external behaviors. Categories are split based on two different axes: Whether a person is active or reserved; or whether they are task or people-oriented.
Dominance (Active, Task) – Driven, decisive, and result-focused
Influence (Active, People) – Friendly, enthusiastic, and collaborative
Steadiness (Reserved, People) – Stable, sincere, and accommodating
Conscientiousness (Reserved, Task) – Careful, analytic, and systematic
Once you know your DISC type You can begin to identify your strengths, weaknesses, and adapt to become more efficient in the workplace. Start by using the tactics below:
Communication Styles + Self-Awareness
Recognizing + Adapting to Other Styles
