Collaborators, or people who are strong in, first, Steadiness (S) and, second, Influence (I), are characterized as supportive, team-spirited, compassionate, and approachable people.

They create a collaborative and joyous atmosphere while working in groups.

Additionally, a SI personality focuses on building trusting relationships. This individual shows empathy actively listens to people and ensures those around them feel heard.

They are also known for their stabilizing presence in conflictual situations.

How they relate to others

Of all DISC profiles, Collaborators are probably the most effective at relating to other people, in an all round sense. They are able to socialise easily and their gregarious natures allow them to feel at ease with people they do not know. They are often persuasive and charming, but the Steadiness in this profile means that they are also able to adopt a more open, relaxed approach when a situation demands, becoming less directly active and more passively receptive to the ideas and feelings of other people.

What they are good at

The strengths of Collaborators relate to their abilities in the areas of communication and understanding. In this case, the high Influence is shared with Steadiness, allowing them to fulfil supportive roles well, being understanding and sympathetic, but their more outgoing side means that they are also able to operate effectively in a social or persuasive sense. It should be noted, however, that people of this kind place less emphasis on matters of practicality than a purely S-type, as this element is balanced by the less methodical Influence factor.

What motivates them

Antagonism, rejection and confrontation are all situations that this type of person will try to avoid. To use their considerable communicative powers, they will need to feel that they are operating in a favourable environment, and that those around them are sympathetic and approving. To feel completely motivated, individuals with a Collaborator profile need to feel that they are appreciated, respected and liked by the people around them, and will sometimes go to unusual lengths to attract positive attention of this kind.
