DiSC D group culture

DiSC D group culture

The way we do things

D-team-fullMy last post covered the availability and usefulness of the Everything DiSC Group Culture Report which is available for the Workplace, Management and Sales profiles. If you have three or more people who have taken an Everything DiSC profile, you can run a group report for them. For the next four posts I’ll cover each of the cultures. What types of behaviors does each reward? What does it encourage?

The D culture can struggle with high turnover and a stressful environment. Can you see why? Can you suggest ways to make it more successful?

 The D culture rewards

  • Independence
  • Decisiveness
