Efficient Achiever

You value achievement, delivering results and being decisive. You tend to be assertive, driven and determined. Complementing your competitive nature, is your inclination to be disciplined, rigorous and realistic. You value stability, order and being careful.

At Work

Your emphasis lies in producing output, rapid responsiveness, and maintaining a strong focus on quality and efficiency. Your assessment of others is based on their outcomes, rather than solely on their level of effort.

You enjoy taking charge, establishing ambitious objectives, and surmounting challenges. You thrive on swiftly achieving tasks and outperforming peers. 

Furthermore, enjoy having a clear process, working with precision and going into detail. You flourish when analysing facts thoroughly and working in a systematic manner.

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 productivity, achievement of results, efficiency and quality of work; 

  • Effective communication involves being direct, making clear decisions, and asserting oneself. It may also be detailed and backed by facts; 

  • Team members are efficient 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.
