I just took the DiSC profile this morning and got a high D. Earlier this week, I took the Clifton StrengthsFinder as required by my employer. My top 5 strengths are Connectedness, Futuristic, Belief, Ideation, and Responsibility.
The interesting thing to me is that the StrengthFinder system also has 4 Domains of Strengths that seem to correlate very closely to DiSC. They are Executing, Influencing, Relationship Building, and Strategic Thinking. In the picture below, I actually wrote DiSC across the top of the page describing the 4 domains.
My strengths fall in the Executing and Strategic Thinking categories. My high D matches up nicely with Executing. However, Strategic Thinking got more of an emphasis than C and while i was my second in DiSC, Influencing didn't show up at all in my StrengthFinder.
Just wondering if anyone has made a connection between these two systems before and what your thoughts would be.
