FOCUS PROFILE STYLE: D/I

GENERAL OBSERVATIONS

The D/I Focus Style strives for dominance in the environment and the influencing of people.  Competitive to achieve control, the D/I does so mostly by influencing others. The D/I is an encourager and an exhorter; the D/I in one who affirms others so that they can find success. The D/I accepts conflict and wants to see personal issues resolved so that direction is established and results are achieved. The D/I is task oriented but very people sensitive. The D/I is individualistic and able to work independently, move quickly, provide vision, and keep the environment positive.  However, the D/I is often found to be lacking in gathering details and information before the decision is forthcoming. Then, they have to go back and “re-build the bridge.” Because of the high energy and independent work style, team members may find themselves struggling to keep up and insisting on a more systematic/process-oriented approach to task accomplishment. This is a major point of relational friction. The D/I, however, can be a good salesman and, with a little adjustment, relationships and project advancement remain positive.
