As we continue our understanding of leadership, today I want to expand our Emotional Intelligence, or EQ, by discussing the importance of understanding personality types in the workplace.
Now, we’ve been hanging out together for a while and I just have to ask, Are you a square? No, not that kind of square!
Maybe you’re a circle or a triangle?
We can identify our personality tendencies with some simple geometry. Yikes – no formulas I promise!
We are multi-dimensional people and have many sides to us. However, we have natural tendencies that we can relate to one or two specific shapes.
It’s important to have representation of all of these shapes on your team and in your organization to bring different perspectives and ideas for problem-solving, and creating.
As always, I love to hear from you. What shape do you identify with the most and what shape value do you bring to the table? What is the most challenging shape to work with and how have you learned to leverage those unique qualities of each personality type?
