Sometimes we are a blend of both (ambivert), and most often, a quick interaction with someone can give you an idea of where they fall on the continuum. In terms of DiSC styles, what we can say with relative certainty is that people with the ‘i’ style avre not only outgoing, but typically extroverted as well. Continue reading

Confidence or Arrogance? The D Style

I think most people have at least one person in their lives who they could say with relative certainty, “Oh yeah, they’re a D style” just based on their level of confidence, and the fact that they are more likely to be forceful, direct, strong-willed, assertive, and results-oriented. The D style is the go-getter, the person who believes strongly in their own ideas and wants to run with it without being challenged by others. Continue reading

Does Accuracy Drive You? The C Style

The C style, is based around the concept of ‘conscientiousness’. Which, if you ask google means, “the personality trait of being careful, or vigilant. Conscientiousness implies a desire to do a task well, and to take obligations to others seriously.

Get To Know Your Customers with Everything DiSC Sales

disc-profile-types

Everything DiSC is an engaging and comprehensive workplace personality assessment program that helps you to build productive and positive workplace skills based on your specific habits, strengths and weakness as an employee.

Everything DiSC Sales is our workplace assessment and skill development program that is tailored-made for people working within the sales industry. Unlike our other programs, Everything DiSC Sales focuses on the DiSC profile of both sales people and their customers. This extra insight gives sales people the knowledge they need to better assist their clients, creating a better business for everyone involved. Here is some more information about how Everything DiSC Sales can work to bring sales people and their customers closer together.

Customer DiSC Profiles

In the same way that each sales person has their own DiSC profile that details all of their habits, strengths and weakness as an employee, every customer also has their own unique DiSC profile. DiSC profiles are separated into four broad categories. Nobody is exclusively tied to a specific DiSC style—everyone has a little of every DiSC style, and the attributes of different styles may be highlighted under certain circumstances. However, these four profiles can be used as a general framework to better understand your customers, their motivations and behaviors. The four DiSC customer profiles are:

D Style: D style customers are fast-paced and skeptical. These customers aren’t afraid to express their opinions and may be assertive in their wants and needs.

i Style: i style customers and fast-paced and warm. They may be talkative, expressive, energetic, and looking to build a rapport with sales people before buying.

S Style: S style customers are warm and cautious. These customers are friendly and agreeable but may be more reluctant to move towards a sale.

C Style: C Style customers are skeptical and cautious. These customers are the ones who want to make an informed decision before committing to a sale, and may feel mistrustful of overly-friendly sales people.

The key to being a successful sales person is to really know your customers. Everything DiSC Sales gives you the tools and insight you need to develop your sales skills and build a long-lasting rapport with your customers.

How Does Everything DiSC Management Work?

Similar to our other DISC programs, Everything DiSC Management begins with an in-depth assessment of your management style and habits.

Using this profile, Everything DiSC Management provides useful strategies, tactics and exercises to help you develop your managerial skills.

Your Management Preferences

One aspect that Everything DiSC Management helps you to discover is your management preferences. What do you like about being a manager? Which responsibilities or tasks do you shy away from?

For instance, you may enjoy facilitating team building as a manager, but dislike giving negative or constructive feedback to individuals. Everything DiSC Management helps you to become aware of these preferences, and provides strategies to help you prevent these preferences from interfering with the quality of your management. Everything DiSC also helps you to understand your delegating style so you can get a better sense of how to best direct your employees.

Learning good management techniques is an ongoing process. As your team of employees changes and grows, you’ll have to reassess your management style to adapt to your new environment. Everything DiSC Management helps emerging and established managers to understand and develop their managerial skills.
