Understanding D of D-I-S-C

Defiance is one of the characteristics of the D (Dominance) style.

The D-style in the D-I-S-C Framework is heavily result-oriented. This produces a significant level of focus on the end game. A competitive spirit and a drive to win are key features of the D-style in action.

“Stubborn”, “Pushy”, “Aggressive” are some of terms that are used to describe D-style behavior when obstacles threaten goal attainment.

Want to hit it off well with your D-style colleague?

Help them achieve their goals. Contributing to the success of the D-style colleague is the most important thing you can do to win their support and respect.

Rough edges? Look past those. No harm or malice is intended. Just this raw desire to achieve desired objectives.
