How do we behave?

Research shows that most successful people share the common trait of self-awareness. They recognise the situations that will make them successful, and this makes it easy for them to find ways of achieving objectives that fit their behavioural style.

Those who understand their natural behavioural preferences are far more likely to pursue the right opportunities, in the right way, at the right time, and get the results they desire.

The DISC index is the most contemporary interpretation of Dr William Marston’s ground-breaking work into understanding and measuring a person’s natural behavioural style.
Understanding individual behavioural preferences and habits is also crucial when working with team members, as a leader or a manager of several people, or in an environment that requires conflict resolution. The DISC Index can be used in a variety of situations.

It is of critical importance to know who is the goal-driven, competitive employee, or the conservative accurate person or the careful organized one to name but a few examples. Putting them on the right seat on the right plane will bring huge success and happiness to both the employee and the company. Putting them on the wrong seat … well you get the picture.

From time to time we all move from a natural way of behaviour to an adaptive way of behaviour. This happens when we become aware of the fact that we are being observed, i.e. during a meeting.

Ever walked out of a meeting and thought to yourself “why did I say or do that”. Sometimes your adaptive style is to your benefit, sometimes not, but the important part is to know and understand why and when you change to an adaptive style, because then you can “manage” it. In Axiology it is referred to thinking about your thinking.

Know yourself and know your staff, it will make a big difference in your business.
