The DISC Sub-traits: Co-operativeness

Understanding the DISC Sub-Trait of Co-operativeness in the Workplace

Published: Tuesday 19 March 2024

In the world of DISC assessments, the sub-trait of Co-operativeness represents a combination of high Compliance and low Dominance. Individuals with this sub-trait in their profile exhibit traits that are essential for fostering harmonious relationships and effective teamwork in the workplace.

Understanding Co-operativeness

Co-operativeness is characterised by a strong attention to rules and details (from Compliance) coupled with a calm and non-confrontational approach (from low Dominance). These individuals excel in creating a supportive and inclusive work environment where everyone's opinions are valued and conflicts are resolved amicably.

In a team setting, those high in Co-operativeness are often the peacemakers, mediators, and reliable team players. They prioritise collaboration, consensus-building, and maintaining a positive atmosphere within the group. Their calm and approachable demeanor makes them easy to approach and work with, fostering open communication and trust among team members.

However, it's essential to recognize that individuals high in Co-operativeness may struggle with making assertive decisions or taking charge in leadership roles. They may prioritise harmony over efficiency at times, which can potentially lead to delays in decision-making processes.

To leverage the strengths of individuals with high Co-operativeness, organisations can assign them to roles that require attention to detail, adherence to guidelines, and the fostering of team cohesion. Pairing them with more assertive team members can create a balanced dynamic that combines attention to detail with effective leadership.

Understanding the DISC sub-trait of Co-operativeness is crucial for building strong and collaborative teams. By recognising and appreciating the unique contributions of individuals with this profile, organisations can create a supportive work environment where diverse skills and personalities thrive.
