You value competition, decisiveness, and being fast. You want to move ahead in life, “play to win”, and seize the right opportunities. You enjoy having passionate debates, being challenged, and getting things done. You tend to be assertive, driven, and determined.

At Work

You care about producing output, responding fast, and being responsive to client's needs. You judge others on the basis of results, and not on their level of effort.

You enjoy taking charge, setting ambitious goals, and overcoming obstacles. You flourish when getting things done quickly and performing better than others.

Your Culture Fit

Someone with your profile naturally integrates well with teams that are primarily characterised by an emphasis on building new and differentiating offerings.

Three key characteristics:
  • The work environment is characterised by its fast pace, productivity, result attainment, and rapid changes; 

  • Effective communication involves being direct, making clear decisions, and asserting oneself; 

  • Team members are competitive go-getters, impatient to get things done and achieve goals.

Thriving generally comes more easily within a culture aligned with your profile. However, you can choose to work in a different environment. If you do, make sure you have the mandate to express your authentic self in the workplace and communicate effectively about any differences in values.
