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

Explaining Things to the Expressive Style Person

Sometimes we find ourselves in situations where we need to explain multiple aspects of an issue to someone. This might be a negotiation, a sales scenario, or an interpersonal conflict. Each Style of person responds to different approaches. You can help Expressive Style people consider all sides of an issue by recognizing them for their contribution to some aspect of the topic at hand. This will fulfill their need for recognition and leave them more open to hearing other viewpoints. When discussing other perspectives, indicate how they might be able to involve themselves in some way, or any impacts for them personally.
