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. Taking these steps is especially important for increasing leadership performance, developing coaching skills, increasing sales, building relationships, working in teams and enhancing communications.

Social Style Tip of the Day

Building Rapport with the Analytical Style Person

Analytical Style people are not focused on relationships, at least not in the initial phases of getting to know someone, so it may take some time to get to know them on a personal basis. You should approach them in a straightforward and businesslike way. You can help them open up by asking about their opinions or experiences in different areas. Oftentimes, encouraging them to speak will move them toward becoming more open and comfortable with others. You will know that they are engaged in conversation when they are listening attentively, are more animated in their expressions and behavior, and are speaking more freely than normal.
