Ever worked with a very intense “C” and tried to get them to understand there is a human side to the work?  How about if you are the intense “C” and people just don’t understand you?  What are the secrets to better communicating with the “C”?  

Someone who is an intense “C” is detail oriented, focuses on quality, and prefers environments that don’t have a lot of interpersonal interaction.   Think of someone in your world that behaves that way.  Then, try these ways to communicate with them:

  • Prepare your comments in advance and have facts/details to back up your opinion.
  • Be specific and come with an action plan to suggest and briefly discuss and decide upon.
  • Expect them to be at least a little pessimistic and critical. Don’t take those types of comments personal.
  • Give them time to think about things, but suggest and agree upon (get their buy-in) a date and time to take action to move forward. 
  • Give the “C” at least 3 feet of personal space when talking with them.   

The more of the above you do, the more likely the communication with be accepted and work.

Party, Party, Party! That might be the “call” when some hear the word “social.” But in our case, “social” means giving to others or society. The mantra for people with this motive or value is closer to “caring,” “sympathetic,” and “selfless.” Would you like to find...
