DISC Platinum Rule Assessment and Workplace Observation Discussion
The purpose of this paper is to review the team’s discussion on the DISC Platinum rule assessment. The review covers a brief analysis and summary of the team member’s dimensions of behavior as outlined in the profile.   Their strengths and weaknesses as outlined in the assessment.   Their individual views on whether or not they agree or disagree with the assessment results.   From these results the team’s diversity became apparent because it represents the different behavioral styles.

Through the group collaboration the I Style guides them to reaching these visions (Alessandra, 2010).
Bryan is a Dominance style.   His substyles are a cross between a producer, impresser, and enthusiast.   Dominance styles have a fast paced and goal oriented frame of mind.   He likes the control of situations and dislikes idle time.   Bryan said he prefers freedom to manage himself and others.   Anna is a Cautious style.   Her substyles are assessor, impresser, enthusiast, and producer.   She enjoys problem-solving, perfecting processes, and working toward tangible results.   Juan is an Adventurer (Di).   His style tends to be less guarded and more direct than the other Dominance styles.   He tends to be wary of the people around him.   Juan tends to sacrifice quality for quantity and if he makes a mistake he tries to justify it.   He said he does not mind challenges from others...
