Trust is the foundation of any relationship and the first level in the Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team model. Trust is hard to buid, but easy to lose. One of the keys to building trust is understanding others’ expectations and how our behavior impacts trust.
The DISC model provides a great resource to better understand how behaviors impact trust. We will take a look at each of the DISC factors (D=dominance, I=Influence, S=Steadiness and C=Conscientious) and how to build trust with each. If you need to learn more about DISC, request to download the e-book here. Not sure what your style scores are, request a free DISC assessment.
To build trust with a high “D” style person, keep these things in mind:
- Do what you say you will do, results matter most
- Save them time
- Get the job done early
- Work harder than you think you need to
- Challenge yourself
- Accomplish goals
- Confront issues and move on
- Be confident
- Be self-motivated and self-directed
- Recognize and appreciate accomplishments impacting the bottom-line
- Don’t talk-around issues or try to manipulate the situation
