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

What does the Driving Style Person Value in Others?

There are certain things we all appreciate from our co-workers. We like them to be smart, courteous, and to smell nice. But each Style has more specific traits that they pay attention to and value from their co-workers.  Driving Style people look to their co-workers to be confident in their own abilities, and likewise to be competent in their performance. They will want others to prove their abilities before they will become entirely comfortable with them. Because they are focused on results, they want others to show commitment to achieving goals. They don’t like to waste time, so they want their co-workers to be efficient, particularly when others’ work directly impacts them. They also want others to be direct and to share their opinions in a straightforward way.
