DISC stand for: Dominance / Influence / Steadiness / Conscientious communication style

  • Dominance: Achieve success by taking decisive actions towards their goal
  • Influence : Achieves success by persuading others to work with them towards the goal
  • Steadiness: Works with others as part of a team to achieve success
  • Conscientious: Works within rules and procedures to ensure success

Everybody tends to have one of these communication styles as his dominant style.

However, your communication becomes more effective when you try to use the style of your partner: ‘ When you are in Paris, don’t ask the direction to a Frenchmen in English, ask it in French’
