Keep each “set” separate. I usually store them in Ziploc bags.


Remind the entire team to think C-Conscientiousness

  • People strong in the C-Conscientiousness dimension have a low need for control and a low need for affiliation. As a result, they tend to have a preference for doing work themselves rather than taking charge or working closely with others. They are focused on quality and accuracy, making sure the task is done right the first time.

“Using the seven puzzle pieces supplied, simultaneously assemble five arrows. One arrow is already complete and provides a size template for the remaining arrows. Each of the four remaining arrows will be the same size as that one. When you are finished, you will be able to see all five arrows at the same time.”

I ask the participants to work separately, where they cannot see what each other is working on. You want to stress the C-Conscientiousness behavior of working alone and finding joy completing it right…no matter how long it takes.

When some people have figured it out, or you feel sufficient time has passed call the team back together.

DiSC Behaviors You’ll Notice

The Conscientiousness-C behaviors will be high;

  1. Conscientiousness C’s Low need for control – Low need for affiliation; Will be the earliest people to find a pattern in the initiative. C’s are the people who can map out challenge situations and processes mentally.
  2. They care about accuracy and high standards. Will keep feelings and emotions to themselves and think through what they are saying and doing before they communicate it out loud.
  3. Measure progress by being right, not just getting it done – getting it done right.
  4. Will ask the facilitator questions about guidelines not to work around them, they ask the questions to ensure that they are followed correctly.
  5. Will become upset when other groups violate rules and vary off the guidelines.
