Tips Tuesdays DiSC Series – 17 of 21: Communication Tips for a D

Tips for a D: Learn to communicate and interact effectively with Magnovo’s Tips Tuesdays DiSC Series

For the next couple of weeks I want to give you some communication tips.So let’s start with the Driver.

The most important thing the D can work on is working on a more gentle approach. They are strong because their ability to have confidence and have a good ego when communicating.

They lack sometimes on the gentle approach to make every feel part of the team. Be aware of feelings and opinions, not just someone to listen to your commands.

Resist the ‘I need to win every argument‘. When convicted they believe in something they will fight for it.

But sometimes even when they are wrong (and we all are sometimes) is they feel like they need to win the argument! Being able to say you are wrong is important.

Avoid sarcasm. Sometimes a sarcastic facial expression or response is given when a D doesn’t like the message. Show value, show appreciation towards every member of the team — that’ my growth tip for the Driver.
