Is anyone familiar with the correlation between Deloitte's "Business Chemistry" behavioural profile and the DISC model?
My organisation has employed Deloitte as business and implementation consultants on a large project. I'm not involved in the project myself, but some of my colleagues are and my desk is near one of the local staff sub-project teams so I hear bits and pieces of what is going on.
For the current phase of the project, all the local team members and senior management for the division that the project falls under, had to do what Deloitte calls a "Business Chemistry" analysis. The Business Chemistry types are Driver, Guardian, Pioneer and Integrator. In talking to one of my colleagues it sounded an awful lot like DISC with a slightly different spin (no doubt for copyright).
I've done a google search to see if I could locate anything that has done a correlation between the two but came up blank, so was interested to find out if anyone has other information.
One thing that I was interested to note, was that in my division projects always involve the same people over and over again. Needless to say all those people are on the current local project team. According to the Business Chemistry types, they are all bar one "Pioneers" and the one is a "Integrator". They were folks I'd figured to be high Is and high Ss. Occasionally the projects involve the odd high D but I've never identified a C (or in Deloitte terms a Guardian).
So now I know why I'm never involved in a divisonal project - I'm a high C :)
