Ever wonder if you're the right fit for your job title? Maybe you're not the right fit for this company? Do you find it hard to speak up for yourself? Does change frustrate you? Are you more emotional than most? Within the values of a company, we each have our own individual values that we operate from, whether we realize this or not. These values are core to our personality, and while many people are hired strictly on skill-set, that only makes up half of your role in any company. The other half is your personality which dictates how you put your skill-set to work.
Failure to consider your own personality and all the other personalities you interact with during a normal work day can be catastrophic. You may be working at solving the wrong problems. Communications and meetings are not connecting with others. The staff is suffering; therefore, the entire business is suffering. Not recognizing the personalities that are working together is the beginning of a toxic culture. However, recognizing all the players at the table and how the pieces fit together can make for a thriving culture and a business that excels at every aspect.
The good news is that you can know these personalities and how all of them fit together. Culture can change for the good, and productivity can increase with a simple understanding of who you are and who you are working with. Most importantly, you and your team begin to feel fully engaged, fully known, and fully valued. Take time to complete this simple assessment, and start yourself down the path of transforming your relationship and a deeper understanding of yourself and those around you!
