Changes in the Dominant Core Elements

Received some new research this week showing the newest array of D-I-S-C with their corresponding dominance with the population as a whole. Sorry, I know this sounds technical and it is relative to the research, however it is important for you to know this type of information.

However, knowing this type of information can help you to reestablish your organization’s reputation as a leader rather than a “safe distance” follower.

Using a significant statistical sample of (n=17,382) the newest are as follows…

Adapted (Graph I)                                       Natural (Graph II)

D   –    15%                                                          D    –    19%
I    –    30%                                                          I     –    32%
S   –    22%                                                          S     –   35%
  C   –    32%                                                        C    –   14%

The most notable thing here is the data is reflecting our current economic environment. How does this show? Check out the change in the adapted style with the C core element.

First the C increased from the natural style of 14% to 32% in the adapted, the S dropped since there are fewer routine type positions in the economy today and the D’s dropped some. What does all this mean?

People are attempting to play by others’ rules to get employed and the stay employed. Some people are showing a fear factor to limit reasons to be dismissed from their jobs.

From an organizational prospective, now is a good time to hire people who are not “scary cats” and demonstrate a higher level of self-confidence and self esteem. You will need more people who can and will compete, to show innovation and assertively go after new business or projects.

You can not afford to have a large number of employees who are “playing not to lose.” When this happens, innovation and creativity dies and a organization will lose its high performance status.
