"Traditional notions of management are great if you want compliance. But if you want engagement, self-direction works better." — Dan Pink
Positive people are resilient people, and the most resilient people are those who develop high value relationships. If you or someone you know needs more positivity then take action today by starting a conversation with me.
This is the 4th and final installment of our 4-week series on D I S C Discoveries. On week 1 we discussed the Dominant style, on week 2, we discussed the Influencing style, on week 3 we discussed Steady, and this week the Magic Word is Compliant.
Have you ever met someone who always has to have all the details, facts, and figures before they make a decision? Those are the characteristics that these individuals are defined by. This behavior style is used by about 17% of the population and is a more reserved style that has a focus on tasks and getting things done.
To better understand the Compliant behavior style it's important to note that they're largely motivated by the fear of criticism, which is why they focus so much attention on details...so that they wont' get criticized!
"C" people are great to have around because they are very detail oriented and excellent at planning, so when you find a Compliant person, help them to let their gold shine by trying your best to always be prepared for them, by sharing facts and details with them. Be open to accepting and encouraging doubts and asking questions. Give ample time for evaluation before a decision is made. If you do, you'll find that their best selves will shine through to benefit everyone!
