Does anyone have advice on improving the "D" and "i" parts of one's profile, to improve effectiveness?
Unfortunately for me, the traditional "manager" personality is not one of my strengths. As you can see from my DISC profile (2-2-4-7), I like rules, long winded explanations, annoying the high Ds around me with over-analysis, etc. :roll: I think my personality is less effective in some non-technical situations, or when time is short, etc. I've been a manager for a long time, and this has always been a problem for me. I have not had a boss who has coached me on this to bring about improved affective behaviors.
I would really like to improve in this area. While I can't think of any specific behavioral examples right now, I hope you get the idea. Any advice is welcome. Pull no punches, fellow managers!
