Managing a rule-following, process focused perfectionist can be infuriating if you don't share their interest in details and data. How can you help a perfectionist "High C" be more effective in a world where deadlines and people matter?
Having a High C on your team can be a powerful additive to your success. High C's are detail conscious, not afraid of hard work, willing to dig into the details, and often exceptional negotiators known for their preparedness and mastery of the minutiae. So, let's all have nothing but C's on our teams, right?
Maybe not. There will be preparedness and plans and processes and procedures... and waiting forever for anything resembling a result. The ocean will be boiled, but only then can the "real work begin." And assume you need an annual calendar and not a watch to determine deadlines.
Just like the rest of the four major behavioral profiles in the DiSC behavioral instrument we favor and teach, High C's cause their share of headaches. They infuriate a lot of bosses with their methodical-ness and ready, aim, aim, aim, aim, aim, aim, mentality.
What ARE the dangers of managing a High C, and what can we do about them?
