Your team culture

Understanding a team's cultural style can help with working with a certain team. Every team does things differently, has its own strengths and challenges. The personalities of the members and the personality of its leader, the type of work the team does, and the cohesiveness of the team all influence the team's culture.

The team, in effect, has its own personality, it's own pressures to behave in certain ways and to prioritize particular behaviors. Most team members will likely feel comfortable with the group's culture, but others may feel like they're in a foreign environment if their own DiSC style differs considerably from the group's.
