This Worker needs and wants to talk.

Needs social recognition and interaction with people. The “I” Worker will be optimistic, inspiring, persuasive and trusting in their approach to you. This Worker often speaks with enthusiasm, has a smile on their face and is hoping the same from you.

They want their problems resolved, but want them resolved by people who are friendly towards them
Not a big fan of “voice mail” since it eliminates the element of human interaction
If you serve an ‘I” style Worker, accept them and be friendly
Relationships are extremely important
Respond well to expressive gestures

Need to smile at them and either stand of sit next to them to provide an atmosphere of acceptance

Close is fine with I people, they like you and want to feel close to you

I people are oriented and driven to people and relationships
Need to be expressive and animated to get their attention

Your tone of voice should be energised, enthusiastic, friendly, persuasive and filled with high and low modulations

You should also sound colourful

Use images and word pictures

Your pace should be fast and animated

Your actions should be fast and filled with gestures

Use words such as
Fun Recognition
I feel Exciting
You’ll look great The latest thing
Put you in the spotlight Wonderful
State-of-the-art Awesome
Everybody Fantastic

The S style Worker is an accommodating individual.

This is the person who, when is inconvenienced by your product not working will make sure they don’t upset you with their complaint. The S Style Worker is patient, relaxed, logical and systematic. They do not like change so when serving a S Style Worker, it is important to keep their need for stability in mind.

Are loyal and serviced orientated
Likely to dress with clothing emblazoned with their employer’s logo
They are causal in nature and dress modestly
Likely to come back to familiar and reliable places
Since they are relaxed in nature and weary of change, you should lean back when standing in front of them and don’t rush your actions

You should appear relaxed and not too close for comfort

Use small hand gestures and maintain an atmosphere of calm
Your tone of your voice should be warm, soft, calm and steady

Your volume should be on the low side

Your rate of speech should be relaxed and thoughtful.

Your actions should be well paced and relaxed

Use words such as
Think about it Comfort

Trust You can expect
Guarantee Conservative

Security Here’s what’s going to happen
Reliable Step-by-step explanation
Help me to help you
How do I know when I am
dealing with a DOVE?
Your everyday perfectionist.

They want it precise, orderly and accurate. They are meticulous
by nature and diplomatic in behaviour. You need to be armed
with the facts, figures and supporting data. They want all the ‘T’s
crossed and ‘I’s dotted before they will accept your ideas

C Style Workers are sticklers for following rules. If you deviate from
your policy of law, they will know

Are great poker players, they always have the same look and you never know what’s going on in their minds

They are conservative in nature, as exhibited by their clothing, which is often good quality

They love do-it-yourself projects

They will always ask you questions concerning how they can do it

They love to decorate their offices with charts and graphs

C Styles humour, when you find it is dry wit

Forget engaging them in casual conversation
Don’t touch or get too close

Sit or stand across from them where you can see them

If standing, stand firmly with your weight planted on the back foot

Maintain direct eye contact and use little or no hand gestures
They are wary of what you have to say

Keep the tone of your voice controlled at all times with little modulation

They are suspicious of hype style responses

You must be direct and precise in what you have to say

Your pace should be slow and thoughtful

Your words, vocal tone, pacing should all convey: here are the facts you need to get what you want. Nothing more
