How to recognize someone who is “burned or about to burn”.

It is unbelievable to see how many of these types of profiles are found in organizations and even how few of them are aware that they are and the impact of their behavior on the environment and therefore the impact that the environment has on them as well.

It is enough to see a graph of a DISC report. Experience has also shown me the close relationship between this type of profile and the way in which it leads in its environment. Coincides with the typical profile of an NP3 (a person with skill but little motivation) are coincidentally characteristic of a person whose leader is “over-leading” or “under-leading” him, as bad one as the other. Depending on the graphic in which you are (natural or adapted) it is easier or more complicated to solve, because it implies depending on which one you are, how long you have been behaving like this. “Behavior is a function of the person based on his or her perception of the environment“.

In the report you can see it when all the bars or points are below the line of 50 or the middle line, if you see it in the adapted is that it takes little time, but if you see it in the natural… OH GOD. A long coaching process awaits you if it is recoverable, or if you have reached the PNR (point of no return) a period of transition or imminent change awaits you. All this simply by having a look at a DISC graph and without having to read the entire DISC report.

Anyway, at a behavioral level, the only way out of this, regardless of the course the person is going to follow, is to pull one of the engines, rather, the only engine that can get you out of there. You need to emphasize seeing the situation as a challenge, set your sights on clear objectives, you need to win and go solving milestones that give you a slight shot of dopamine, empowerment and get you out of that situation of boredom and being in the dark. I guess you know I’m talking about boosting your “D”. Wow…all this seeing a simple DISC graphic. Simply a wonderful tool, enlightening, objective and pragmatic.
