FOCUS PROFILE STYLE: D/C

GENERAL OBSERVATIONS

The D/C Focus style is a strong profile for leadership and product excellence. The D/C desires dominance in the environment and will have strong opinions in the facts related to the tasks at hand. The task orientation of the D/C can be overwhelming to those who are people/feelings oriented because there is the potential for critical and demanding performance expectations. The D/C will slow the process down to make sure things are correct and will take risks only as the facts demonstrate a successful outcome to the challenge. The appearance of the lack of warmth works against the D/C in relational environments but the demand on self and others to get results with excellence raises the D/C’s leadership potential. D/C’s do not look for confrontation but will not pull back in the face of it—especially when the facts verify positive outcomes.
