Question 1:

Personal Intervention: Reflect on this week’s lecture and, based on your limited knowledge, would you say that you are a D, I, S, or C? Write that down, then follow the link, and take a free DiSC assessment. DiSC (Links to an external site.). Once you complete the assessment, compare it to your initial observation based on the lecture. Read your results and notice the % in the pie chart of your results. The highest percentage will be your dominant or default style. Keep in mind we all have all of the DiSC components in our behaviors and adapt when necessary. Based on your results, how do you feel this information could benefit your personal and professional life? Respond to two classmates’ posts.

Before taking the DiSC assessment, I predicted I would end up having results indicating a high Compliance score. In the previous testing, that was similar, which initialized from my work, I discovered that I am very analytical and detail-oriented.

After completing the assessment, I found that I scored a 40% dominance, 35 Compliance, 14% Influence, and 10% Steadiness.

I was momentarily shocked by the high dominance score until I read the summary description. DISC Personality Tests stated, “You have a strong inner motivation to assertively create and implement new ideas You handle pressure well-you strive for excellence and expect others to do the same. You are innovative but tend to avoid risk-taking”. I don’t disagree with that summary of my results. I am very direct and impatient, which falls under Dominance. As I stated earlier, I expected to have high compliance already. I am not confident even when I know I am right And while I am a team player, I have very little patience and am too blunt for it to be possible to have a high Steadiness score.

On the whole, I agree with this assessment, and it’s scoring, I think it is accurate for my personality. Having this information will benefit me in my personal and professional life because knowing this, I will be able to be mindful of situations in which I may want to reinforce behaviors I am low on to be a more well-rounded individual. Being aware of my strengths will lend me the opportunity to volunteer for situations that require those skill sets and be able to contribute with ease.

Having read this week’s lecture, I am going to assume that my score will be highest in the “I” for Influence behavior. I feel as though I see myself in all the DISC behaviors, but this one stood out to me because I see myself in this role in my current position. I am always enthusiastic and social, a team player, a motivational and conflict resolving type of person. I do also feel that my coworkers would see me as this person.

Having taken the DISC assessment, I found that my guess was not accurate. My results were:

Steadiness 38%

Compliance 27%

Influence 20%

Dominance 15%

After taking the test, my DISC personality type results read: “You are tenacious and determined to follow a course of action – to achieve objectives. You are a clear thinker. You have an inner need to be objective and analytical. You like to pursue a definite course of action. You respond to logic rather than emotion. You are likely to be particularly good at handling challenging technical assignments.”

I have to say I would happy to show this to my current manager as I attempt to promote into a management analyst position! I am very excited to see that I have an inner need to be objective and analytical because these are the types of characteristics, I will need in order to progress. I honestly thought I was more of an influence/social-centered type of worker because I tend to have great relationships with people across all fields of employment at my organization, but I am happily surprised by these results. I think that working in an Engineering Department that this type of worker would fare well with the technical and analytical assignments I will be subjected to.

I do realize that in both my professional and personal life, I tend to be less emotional and more factual, logical and analytical so this was a big reassurance to me that I am entering a job that I may eventually be very good at.

Dr. Reed – Just a quick thanks for having us take this test! I found it fascinating!

Question 2:

Reflect on a team you currently belong to and see if you can identify Tuckman’s stages of team development: Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing. What stage are you currently in? Did you find difficulties with any of the stages? How did you negotiate the storming phase? Respond to two classmates’ posts.

Student Reply 3: Laura Lawson

I recently joined a team for a ten-day, group effort to virtually race roughly 1,400 miles. Each team members adds their miles to the group total, and we are racing against five other teams to reach the finish line first.

This team quickly passed through the forming stage. We completed that phase in less than 24-hours, where we learned about each other. We are currently in the storming phase. Some runners aren’t pulling their weight. Other runners are pushing the slower runners too hard and trying to get them to do more. There are conflict and tension between the two ends of the spectrum, and we’re trying to find our teams norms. I find this stage to be very difficult, given that I can see both sides of the argument. The high mile runners want to win, they signed up and paid their fees planning to work towards winning. The low mile runners may not be performing due to health reasons or time management issues. However, they still wanted to participate and contribute. I understand both ends of the argument. There are debates on each side. I dislike any phase where there are arguments, and I am looking forward to when the group finds a balance.

I don’t think we will remain in this phase for long, once we figure out our teams’ pace, I’m sure runners will adjust to compensate, and we will find a balance that allows for us to perform for the team effectively.

I can identify Tuckman’s stages of team development in my current team. Tuckman’s stages of team development are forming, storming, norming, and performing (Bierema, 2014). These stages apply in my current job. The guy I work with started about 6 months ago and it is only me and him in our section. When he first arrived, we were in the forming stage and got to know each other. We then went into the storming stage because we had different ideas on how we should do things. After a few months we began to understand each other ideas more and did not argue about things. We are now in the performing stage and work together to accomplish tasks.

The only difficulty was to find a middle ground on issues that we disagreed on during the storming phase. We negotiated this by weighing the pros and cons of each decision and then went with the one which was better. We also started to listen more to each other about the rationale behind the problems. This got us past the storming stage and now we perform well together.
