If you are MIM® Certified and have undertaken the Best Practice in IT Major Incident Management Training, then you will have completed a DiSC® profile assessment, your report has a much more detailed and personalized explanation of what having a C style means for you.
People with the C style place an emphasis on working conscientiously within existing circumstances to ensure quality and accuracy.
A person with a C style:
- is motivated by opportunities to gain knowledge, show their expertise, and produce quality work
- prioritizes ensuring accuracy, maintaining stability, and challenging assumptions
- is described as careful, cautious, systematic, diplomatic, accurate and tactful
- may be limited by being overcritical, overanalyzing and isolating themselves
- may fear criticism and being wrong
- values quality and accuracy
- objective processes
- stability and reliability
- gaining knowledge and expertise
- personal growth
Will need to expend more energy to:
- let go of and delegate tasks
- compromise for the good of the team
- join in social events and celebrations

When communicating with a C-style individual, focus on facts and details; minimize "pep talk" or emotional language; be patient, persistent, and diplomatic.
