Millions of professionals have used the DISC personality assessment to improve their relationships, build stronger teams, and communicate more effectively.
Dc/Cd's are efficient executors who love to take on ambitious goals and challenges. They are both decisive and analytical, and typically drive forward very quickly to complete tasks with competence. While they can be a strong force to drive change, their high intensity and desire for control over most situations can create conflicts and stress others out.
Dc/Cd's are not particularly chatty and may actually seem reserved at first, but when they have something to say they can be extremely forthcoming, confident, and articulate. They separate emotions from decision-making and relish conflict, viewing it as an opportunity to grow.
Dc/Cd's are motivated by efficient results, and they can be extremely competitive in achieving their goals. They are logical, focused pragmatists, and when given the choice, they will pursue impressive accomplishments over a wide social circle.
As a leader, a Dc/Cd will run a tight ship, with fast-paced operations, well-organized tasks, clear-cut roles, and strong processes. Although they are not stubborn when presented with new facts, a Dc/Cd leader will typically favor execution within existing structures over experimentation to find new ways.
However, with their intense focus on results, they may ignore feelings of team members, which can unintentionally harm morale and cause conflict or tension. It's important for Dc/Cd's to recognize and place value on others' emotions, even if it doesn't come naturally.
Under stress, Dc/Cd's can become impatient and controlling. Without restraint, they may push others very hard to complete a project on time, or lash out at an individual that makes a careless mistake.
In this kind of situation, a Dc/Cd can be much more effective and preserve relationships with a little bit of cooperation and communication.
