Adapting Your Style
Many of us have taken a behavioral style inventory at some point in our careers. While the intent of these inventories may differ based on why we are taking it, most of the time they are to improve communication between people of different styles.
Our organization uses DISC to measure Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientiousness. The profile that results illustrates our behavioral style and a little more about what makes us tick. The assessments are usually very accurate, and knowing the styles of others helped us communicate better. For instance, someone who has high steadiness will be more patient going through details while someone with high dominance wants the facts and wants to make a decision now.
