FOCUS PROFILE STYLE: S/C/D

GENERAL OBSERVATIONS

The S/C/D Focus Style has a primary need for stability and correctness BUT strives for dominance in the environment. This creates a natural tension within because a dominant need requires elements of risk, challenge, and speedy results while achieving correctness and stability requires an element of consistency at a slower pace. The resulting behavior is that the S/C/D will be a loyal supportive person with “precise” and systematic thinking that will use these qualities to achieve dominance and control. The S/C/D Focus Style reduces the risk elements that exist in projects or new relationships and approaches people and projects in a logical/systematic manner.  The S/C/D, like the S/D/C, also brings in “team” qualities that minimize the demand for individuality that is present in the D, D/C, and C/D Focus Styles. The S/C/D has expectations of loyalty, demonstrates an ability for peacemaking within the team, and wants to be appreciated and respected for the skills, ideas and leadership brought to the table.
