FOCUS PROFILE STYLE: D/I/C

GENERAL OBSERVATIONS

The D/I/C is a complex Focus Style in that behaviorally it wants dominance, influence and compliance in the relational environment. This makes for a very “strong” personality. The D/I/C is a dominant “cheerleader” who can be rigid and demanding in task accomplishment.  However, this style does get (or sees that) the job gets done. Because of the temperament, the D/I/C will probably know a lot of people but have a narrow number of close relationships. The D/I/C can be an articulate leader that presents him or herself very well and is knowledgeable in chosen areas of expertise. They have high expectations of self and others and do not resist conflict in order to fulfill their role or accomplish tasks.
