Getting Results I am willing to do what it takes to reach my goals. Once I’ve established what needs to be done, I go after it, and I don’t let obstacles stand in my way. I’m not likely to make excuses for failure, not accept any.
Taking Action I am eager for success and I like to hit the ground running. People do think of me as a really good listener due to my calm presence and even temperament. I do have quite a bit of patience when working with others and I am likely to teach people things in order to make process more effective. However, I have little patience for hesitancy when instructions are clear or a decision on the way-ahead has been made.
Once I choose a course, or have been given a course, I want to take quick action and keep things moving.
Offering Challenge I will speak up when I see flaws and inefficiencies, but I will make my opinion known diplomatically when required. I can be candid too. I work hard to understand my audience so that my opinion, especially in disagreement, can be received well. I value efficiency and candor and I welcome challenge from others regarding my approach and performance because I believe that this is how I improve.
