Having clear insight into our natural characteristics – our natural behavioural patterns – helps us to understand our responses to people and situations in daily life. For example, suppose we have a sense of our instinctive reactions and are aware of what situations, conversations or actions cause us to respond uncooperatively and perhaps with low enthusiasm. In that case, we become aware of how to manage our reactions better and improve our responses.
Similarly, the same applies to knowing what motivates our team or us. Using these golden insights of information can help us enhance our team’s culture. A team encouraged to understand one another and who can appreciate one another’s quirks and differences – they learn to interact respectfully and supportively.
During our day-to-day tasks, we may find that we enjoy some jobs more than others; perhaps it is a case that some tasks come easier to us. Have you ever wondered why this is? Have you ever wondered why you get lost in the details? How come you get impatient or procrastinate? Perhaps, you are always thinking about others first? By completing a Behavioural Profile, the results will help us to understand why this is.
Suppose you have read about Real Estate Dynamics Behavioural Profiling on our website. In that case, you will have learned that the profile uses a psychometric algorithm to determine an individual’s natural and adjusted behavioural tendencies while considering both conscious and unconscious behaviour.
The design of the profile delivers results about how we communicate and our decision-making style, as well as any general behavioural responses in a work environment. Equipped with this in-depth knowledge about our behaviour, we can apply the knowledge to our home lives. For example, we can pick up on how someone close to us responds in a situation and how we can change our response for a better outcome.
Behavioural Profiling makes us better communicators!
Considering conscious and unconscious behaviour helps you be more aware of which of your behaviours are more instinctive for you and which require more effort. Think about the power of knowing how you or an individual in your team may respond to a challenging task and changes in the workplace or perhaps a role change. The D.I.S.C Personality types profile identifies four key personality types: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance. The profile is developed so that it describes and analyses an individual’s natural reaction to motivations and distractions in their environment.
If you can understand your behavioural style and what behaviour you need to develop for success, imagine the possibilities if you apply the same across your team. What about clearly understanding what motivates someone and what will demotivate and cause stress in the workplace?
Several of our clients have responded positively to their results. They are often surprised by how accurate the profile is when describing their natural traits. Understanding your traits helps you to interact better. For example, suppose you can identify, for yourself, how you react in situations. Tapping into this knowledge equips you better to communicate without overreaction. Your communication skills – your objection-handling skills become more measured. So, you add a sense of calm, empathy or directness to a conversation that previously could have been missing. Furthermore, the results can indicate when someone’s role is the wrong fit for long-term sustainability and where someone has the potential to develop and take on a new challenge.
Through learning our behavioural traits, we understand our and others’ natural behavioural patterns. Having this knowledge makes you relatable, and it reinforces your way of communicating. As a result, better communication leads to an enhanced connection, increasing your influence which is essential for managing business relationships.
So why should you complete a Behavioural Profile? Because by understanding our natural behaviour patterns, we begin to open up our thinking. Being open-minded helps us achieve personal growth as we consider and adopt new ways of observing and communicating.
