You value autonomy, flexibility and being different from others. You tend to be adaptive, experimental and inquisitive. Complementing your creative nature, is your inclination to be assertive, driven and determined. You value achievement, delivering results and being decisive.

At Work

You prioritise the pursuit of novelty, seeking a certain level of freedom to experiment and learn, and aiming for swift output.

You derive enjoyment from creative thinking, risk-taking, and leading change. Flourishing in envisioning the future and innovating game-changing ideas, you also relish assuming leadership, setting ambitious goals, and surmounting challenges. Your growth thrives when accomplishing tasks efficiently and outperforming 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 radiates a result-oriented entrepreneurial spirit, allowing autonomy for participation in change and innovation while working productively; 

  • Effective communication exudes energy, vibrancy, and a visionary approach. It may also be straightforward, decisive and assertive; 

  • Team members are innovators focused on transformation, being responsive to clients and achieving targets.  

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.
