Balanced Achiever

You value achievement, delivering results and being decisive. You tend to be assertive, driven and determined. Complementing your competitive nature, is your ability to balance the need for stability and change.

At Work

You care about producing output, responding fast, and being responsive to client's needs. You enjoy taking charge, setting ambitious goals, and overcoming obstacles. You flourish when getting things done quickly and performing better than others. 

On the one hand, you enjoy efficiency and discipline. On the other hand, you enjoy continuous improvement and innovation. You tend to take smart risks. You flourish when combining analytical and creative problem solving.

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.
