A True Story About How the DISC Personality Test Can Help You and Your Employer:
Nathan was a charismatic young man fresh out of college and newly married, eager to go out and make a living for his new little family. After applying at one job after another, he finally accepted a position at a bank as a relationships banker. He quickly won the hearts of both his coworkers and clients as he got to know them all and brought some life and fun into an oftentimes somber workplace.
With his excellent leadership skills and quick thinking, within six months he was promoted to a leadership program to get him on the fast track to management.
Coming back as a manager, he was now put in the role of managing…and firing…his peers.
He moved to a new town to open up the first branch in the area, and his days shifted from connecting with the clients to pushing his employees to meet the numbers.
Success was measured by quotas and financial statements, and he spent more time in a closed office dealing with conflicts and making sure the numbers lined up.
His people skills got him into a higher paying position…and directly moved him out of his strengths and into a role that sucked the life out of him. He was frustrated, isolated, and horribly demotivated.
If you’ve ever heard of the “Peter Principle“, this is a classic example. What happened was he “rose to the level of his incompetence” – he was great with people in his first role, so he was promoted – and with each promotion, he was moved further from the people connection he thrived in – and thus, rose to a point where he was not living in his strengths and he got burned out.
