Do You Know What Kind of Personality You Have?
And do you know all of the positive and negative traits associated with your personality type?
If you’ve ever taken a DiSC Assessment, you might. DiSC personality tests are great for a number of reasons. For one, they can help employers know their employees better.
They can also help you understand yourself to a greater extent. We covered two personality types in the previous post, covering the traits of Dominance and influence. Learn about the last two types right here…
DiSC Isn’t Some Meaningless Word.
In terms of personality tests and assessments, DiSC stands for Dominance, influence, Steadiness, and Conscientious.
Each of the letters represented in the DiSC acronym have a number of specific traits that help to define certain personality types. If you’re wondering what some of those are, here is a short assessment of each personality in the DiSC system:
Times Have Changed Regarding Getting A Good Job
Once upon a time, getting a good job was about having the relevant education and wearing proper business attire. However, times have changed a lot since then and since HR managers have started to pay attention to so-called “soft skills” the things they are looking for in applications are now completely different. The scientific terms of soft skills are EQ – Emotional Intelligence Quotient – and this is an attribute that is hard to measure and takes work to master. However, it seems to be more important to businesses than qualifications, experience or what someone wears. Unsurprisingly, soft skills training is becoming increasingly popular.
The Importance of Managing a Sales Team
It is very important to know how to manage a sales team and see real results. However, there is no five step plan or exact blueprint on how to do this the right way. It all depends on the industry, the business culture, the goal, the people within the team, the leadership style and a range of other variables. Most people who work in sales have strong personalities, which means they can also be highly challenging to manage. Luckily, there are tips out there that may help ease or facilitate the process to some degree.
What Is A DiSC Profile?
The DiSC Profile is a fantastic tool that allows people to improve and understand their behavior both at home and in the workplace. It isn’t just about understanding your own DiSC Profile, however, but also about understanding that of others within a team. DiSC stands for Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientiousness, and everyone tends to score highest on one of these four issues. Being aware of this improves working relationships and productivity and tends to make for better leaders and managers. But which industries use the DiSC Profile more than others and why?
