I have been, a technical resource for over 30 years, with 50% of my time overseeing/mentoring or leading technical people. I would have thought my DISC profile would have been more High D/I than the opposites of D/S - did I flub the test? Do I not know myself?
I have receintly been appointed as a technical manager of 15 peple, I fully appreciate that a 50% split between technical work and management in this new role is unlikely to happen and I will most likely be spending more time on O3 and other team matters.
Do I need to change? Do I need to try and alter my behaviour to be more D or accept that i need to control my natural instincts to 'do it myself' and delegate more?
What DISC profile is optmal for technical leaders?
DISC Profile 5362
