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

How does the Amiable Style Person Appear to Others?

Others view Amiable Style people as friendly, open, and supportive. Because they enjoy establishing and maintaining good relationships, they are seen as particularly effective when collaborating with others. They often have good interpersonal communication and networking skills, and this can help to manage projects that involve coordination among different individuals or groups.  These individuals’ strong need to maintain good relationships can sometimes create problems. They can be perceived as timid and unwilling to voice their opinions. Others may misinterpret this silence as acceptance or even active agreement about the direction things are going. Due to their risk-avoidant behavior, others might see them as unproductive and not making contributions to the team.
