Virtually everyone has had a challenging relationship at work. But when you understand others’ behavior, you can work with them more effectively.
The Dimensional Model of Behavior is a tool that organizes aspects of objective, observable behavior into four quadrants. Both individuals and teams demonstrate fundamental types of behavior corresponding to each quadrant of the Model.
Some people impose their will upon others (Q1), while others avoid situations that represent risk (Q2). Still others put social acceptance above other needs and objectives (Q3). We advocate that Q4 behavior, which combines a strong drive for accomplishment with a high regard for people, is proven to generate long-term business success.
When you take our Behavior Questionnaire, imagine a work relationship that needs some improvement. Answer honestly how you would categorize the other person’s behavior. Once you’ve completed the Questionnaire, you’ll receive information and insights about how to communicate more successfully, based on the quadrant where the other person’s behavior falls.
