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.

Social Style Tip of the Day

Leaving a Voicemail for the Driving Style Person

Driving Style people like to use their time efficiently, so when leaving voice mail be brief and to the point. Provide only the key information that is necessary, and don’t bother with specific details unless this is absolutely necessary. Tell the person what your goals are, what you would like the next steps to be, and any timeframes. If feasible, provide options and let the person make a decision. You don’t need to be personable with these individuals, so don’t be too concerned about politeness or leaving personal comments in addition to your main message.
