We’re judged on our behaviors.

Of the three elements of Social Intelligence, your Behavioral Style is the easiest for others to assess. They may not see your Emotional Intelligence or identify your Mindset, but they can tell if you’re animated, rushed or sulking. The way you behave has a direct impact on your interactions with others and on your success in the workplace.

SOCIAL STYLE is the world’s leading Behavioral Style model. It has been used by thousands of organizations to improve leadership performance and sales results.

Each of the four Styles displays positive and negative characteristics when working with others, and research shows that people of any SOCIAL STYLE can be successful in any profession. If someone’s SOCIAL STYLE is not inherently good or bad, what is the point of studying these behavioral preferences? Understanding Style allows you to identify the preferences of others and modify your behavior to make others more comfortable. This is known as Versatility, and it is strongly linked to career and business success.

TRACOM’s SOCIAL STYLE Profile measures SOCIAL STYLE and Versatility, allowing you to take steps to improve your relationships and performance.

Social Style Tip of the Day

Building Rapport with the Driving Style Person

It is the nature of Driving Style people to place less emphasis on personal relationships, at least initially. However, as is true with all people, over time these individuals can develop very good relationships with others. When first getting to know these people, you can develop rapport by establishing your credibility and competence. They look for these things in others, and once you have established your abilities they will be less guarded and more open to getting to know you on a personal level. When speaking with these individuals, you will know that they are actively engaged in the conversation when they are speaking freely, sharing their opinions, and also listening attentively to what you are saying.
