June 22, 20233 min read

If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” ~ Martin Luther King Jr.

Welcome to today's blog post, where we'll dive into the fascinating world of DISC, a powerful tool for understanding personality styles and tendencies. As a DISC expert and Behavioral Consultant, I'm here to share three main takeaways that will help you know yourself better and improve your relationships with your clients, friends, and family. So, let's get started!

Understanding the Four DISC Personality Styles

First and foremost, it's essential to grasp the basics of the four DISC personality styles. These are:

  • D (Dominance): Individuals with a high D style are assertive, results-oriented, and decisive. They thrive in competitive environments and are natural leaders.

  • I (Influence): Those with a high I style are enthusiastic, outgoing, and people-oriented. They excel at communication, persuasion, and building relationships. They need to have fun in the process. 

  • S (Steadiness): People with a high S style are patient, reliable, and supportive. They value stability, consistency, and harmony in their relationships and work environments.

  • C (Conscientiousness): Individuals with a high C style are analytical, detail-oriented, and systematic. They prioritize accuracy, quality, and adherence to rules and standards.

Understanding these four styles will help you recognize your tendencies and appreciate the differences in others.

Adapting Your Communication Style

One of the most significant benefits of understanding DISC is the ability to adapt your communication style to better connect with others. Here are a few tips for each DISC style:

  • D Style: Be direct, concise, and focused on results. Respect their need for autonomy and decision-making authority.

  • I Style: Be engaging, friendly, and open to collaboration. Share personal stories and allow time for socializing and having fun.

  • S Style: Be patient, empathetic, and supportive. Provide stability and reassurance, and show appreciation for their contributions.

  • C Style: Be clear, logical, and detail-oriented. Present data and facts to support your ideas, and respect their need for thorough analysis.

By adapting your communication style to others' preferences, you'll be able to build stronger relationships and work more effectively together. As a SalesPerson, more robust relationships will provide more opportunities to serve your clients and increase your sales numbers and bottom line.  

Embracing Personal Growth and Self-Awareness

Lastly, DISC can be a powerful tool for personal growth and self-awareness. By understanding your DISC style, you can identify your strengths, weaknesses, and blind spots. This self-awareness can help you:

  • Set personal and professional goals that align with your strengths

  • Develop strategies to overcome your weaknesses

  • Enhance your emotional intelligence by recognizing your emotions and triggers

  • Improve your relationships by understanding others' needs and preferences

Incorporating DISC into your personal growth journey can lead to greater self-awareness, improved relationships, and a more fulfilling life.
