Dominance getting tasks done quickly
Influence influencing people to share your views and build your ego
Steadiness connecting one on one with another to help them
Compliance completing tasks but not until they are perfect
When working collaboratively, teams will thrive when they know each other’s strengths (and blind spots. Not knowing these strengths can cause tension between members. For example, if my strength is Dominance (check off tasks) and I’m working with someone who is Steadiness (one on one with another), we’re going to measure our work velocity by entirely different things. This could create an invalid bias that the other person is rude or not working on what’s important. When you share your strengths in a DISC Natural Team Model, you learn how to appreciate and leverage each other’s strengths. This is an important aspect of Agile work. I’ve marked the part of the wheel that would be most collaborative and focused on teamwork.
