DRIVER

Drivers are effective, organized and goal-oriented. When you think of the responsible, executive-type, that would describe you.

HOW OTHERS SEE YOU

As a Driver, you respect rules and procedures that have been established that bring order and prevent chaos. However, this can lead others to sometimes perceive you as bossy, critical, boring, and stubborn.

BE SELF AWARE

But there is always room for growth in your leadership development! We never graduate from the school of self-awareness.

GROW YOUR STYLE

  • Relax and enjoy the ride. The world’s not perfect. Flex and be ready to change your plan!
  • It takes great people and great planning to succeed. Great planning is not your growth opportunity area. Concentrate on maturing your people skills.
  • Failure is essential to innovation and learning. Understand setbacks are setups for greater triumph!
  • Just because an idea doesn’t have a plan, doesn’t mean it won’t work. Come up with the plan, even if you disagree or it’s not your idea.
  • Don’t be intimidated by the popular or gifted communicator. Seek clarity. Ask your questions (with warmth and sincerity!). There are many ways to succeed and sometimes there is a great third option.
  • Watch your tone and tact. Alienating others is not how you access the help needed to succeed.
