Why is it that you automatically “click” with some of your coworkers, while others seem to grate on your last nerve? Why do some people fit right into certain jobs, while others never seem to get the hang of it?
A lot of our workplace interactions—the good and the bad—connect back to our personality styles. Sometimes, two similar personality styles might butt heads, or totally opposite personality styles might not “get” each other. This can cause tension, conflict and frustration.
Everyone who goes through Dave’s interview process takes the DISC personality test at some point. The test helps Dave’s leaders understand how each potential team member will fit into the team—and how well they match the job they have applied for. The DISC isn’t gospel and absolute truth, but it does give team leaders a starting point for understanding how team members click.

Personality conflicts can interfere with an organization of just two people, so just imagine some of the issues you can have in a company of dozens, or even hundreds and thousands of people.
