Isaac Ludlow Series Part 5: Personality types within your team

Hey guys, just wanted to have a bit of a chat today about the different personality types out there, and how understanding the basics of them can really benefit your team.

Some people are naturally well organised, some people are awesome at connecting with people, some people are insanely good at getting things done quickly and some are very loyal and consistent day in and day out.

People with different personality types need different things from their team in order to help them feel good and to want to perform well. The reality is, if you want to grow your business, you’ll need to build a strong team. When you know what people need in order to perform, it means that you can help them succeed.

It also helps you to understand and predict what areas they will work well in and what areas they will struggle in. When you start to understand personality types, you will have the tools you need to see how your people work and put them in roles that help them be happy and perform well.  You will also better understand how to address issues when things aren’t going well and get your team on track and staying productive.


So, where do you start?

If seeing your team functioning well is important to you, then I’d like to suggest a couple of options for you to see the results you’re after.

  1. Firstly, click on this link for a free download of more detailed descriptions of the personality types. It describes how each personality type is likely to behave: under pressure, as an employee, in general interaction, and as a business owner. The model also describes how to sell to each personality type and what things they can work on to help them succeed.
  2. Following on from this, If you would like some individual help for your team or a comprehensive report for each person on your team then get in touch with me directly so I can arrange that for you.

Here is a reminder of the DISC personality type profile. Once again, head to this link to get familiar with a more detailed description of each of these personality types.


That’s all from me this week! In the next article, you’ll get some more awesome tips for having a happy and productive team.
