Know Yourself??

who-are-you

Perhaps it is that moment to take back a seat and evaluate who you are, what you are made of and what you are capable of doing. 

I think this is key when it comes to career mapping and planning as we are better off being in a career / carrying out tasks that utilize our strengths. I came across an interesting perspective of the different types of workers in any successful project HERE and figured I share the same insight.

Hares

These are the creatives. They love to come up with ideas, no follow through, easily get bored with their ideas once they have thought through it. They are random in their thoughts and they do not seem to focus or concentrate

Owls

These individuals are practical and logical. They have to plan every step, they are great at getting people on board, will plan a strategy and mobilize people around it to achieve the goal. They are the go-getters.

Turtles

Just as the name suggests, they are slow and steady. Very suspicious of new ideas, take their time before accepting changes. Basically, the conservatives, believe in tradition, in tried and tested methods. They kind of see the problem even before it is encountered. 

Squirrels

They need structure, work in a methodological manner, step by step process both in their thought and action. They get things done as long as the expectation is clear. Highly organized and basically keeps the machine moving. 

 

Do you spot yourself? Can you see how that may influence your current output at your workplace or in any task you do?
