FOCUS PROFILE STYLE: I/C/S

GENERAL OBSERVATIONS

The I/C/S Focus Style has leadership potential like its counterpart I/S/C. The I/C/S Focus Style, like the I/S/C, becomes an expert in their chosen area of emphasis or assignment. Their people skills and their ability to gather facts and information make them dominant within their identified boundaries. This natural ability to combine expertise with people and tasks is unique and desired by others. The I/C/S is one who is a good administrator because they possess the ability to develop systems and processes while tying the details together to make sure projects are done in a timely manner with excellence. The I/C/S runs into personal difficulty when they encounter the focus styles that are not strongly concerned with the feelings of others or logical and systematic styles of operations. They see this as unjust or destructive and take this as both a personal affront and an affront against their team.
