“The hands that rock the cradle rule the world.”
The majority of care givers and early childhood practitioners have a preference for the Reserved/People Oriented or S-Style behaviour.
It means that the persons responsible for the socialization process in the critical early stages bring a conservative and risk-averse philosophy to the task.
Examples of S-Style mantra include:
“One thing at a time and that done well”. This flies in the face in the demand for multi-tasking in the rat race world in which we live.
Another favourite is: “When a job has been begun, never leave it till tis done.” One would need to have the uncanny skill to start the most important job all the time and that it remains the most valuable use of your time throughout the completion process.
S-style behaviour in the D-I-S-C Framework is the counterpoint to adventurous characteristic of the D-style – Steadiness versus Dominance.
Does S-Style socialization dampen entrepreneurial fervor? What are your thoughts?
