Frankly, each of us sometimes experiences frustration due to the styles of others. We can lose patience with or just not “get” another person. Even in our office, you might hear a comment like “Can you soften that D a bit while we discuss the issue?” or “Can you reach into some C to take care of those reports?” But we also really love each style and try to learn from each of them.
It’s a common facilitation technique to go around the room and tell each person what you appreciate about them so we decided to do that with each DiSC style. These are comments from our own staff about what we love and appreciate about each style. Please share what you love about a coworker or family member with a different style than yours. We’ve reversed the order here just to change things up. Our “i” staff member likes that.
