ENERGIZER

Energizers are fast-paced, live in the moment, and are action-oriented. When you think of the fun-loving members of a team who are optimistic and able to come up with creative solutions, that would describe you.

HOW OTHERS SEE YOU

As an Energizer, you are action-oriented and thrive in the moment to mobilize people. However, others can sometimes perceive you as forgetful, a rule-breaker, not very serious, and as someone who has a challenging time staying on task.

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

  • Learn to be fully present and listen before responding. Sometimes the best motivator is taking time to truly hear what others have to say!
  • Watch how much you talk and finish other people’s sentences in conversations.
  • Anyone can generate great ideas, use your inspirational gifts rally others to build on ideas and develop a plan to complete them.
  • Learn to be patient. Give others time to think about your creative solution. Ownership by all is vital!
  • Understand that just because it’s not fun doesn’t mean it failed. Good times don’t always equal good results.
  • Details matter. Take the time to color in the picture or encourage others who are gifted at the details.
