If you want a humorous pick-me-up, jump onto Trump’s Twitter profile. ‘It’s freezing and snowing in New York – we need global warming.” Yep, these ARE real, can you believe it?
But jokes aside (and there’s a lot of them), we can learn a lot from the current administration. Citizens have always had their say about people in power, but now more than ever before, are we seeing a divide, so great, that it’s banned dinner-table talk?
And Trump? There’s no denying he’s an Eagle, with Peacock qualities. Motivated by authority and power, Eagles want to have control and be the boss. Don’t know what we’re referring, with this bird talk? Skip to the end to arrange your Tick personality profiling assessment.
Then, keep reading.
Just imagine if we had a Dove in power. Someone who’s driven by a sense of belonging and desires appreciation, above all. Can you imagine? A politician who wants to be loved and respected?
Things would be VERY different – for better or worse, maybe we’ll find out later this year.
Because the current climate can serve as an important example of people, personalities, and power trips. It helps us see the value of personalities in positions, whether it’s at the top in Government or in a small local business.
Putting the wrong person in a role can have a detrimental outcome. And some people just love to fire people up. A loud voice and obnoxious tone… opinions about EVERYTHING… and always being right. If they’re talking to an audience of Doves, chances are their message won’t be heard.
The point is, defining roles, is critical to good leadership and teamwork. If you’re in the HR department, responsible for hiring a new employee, what type of personality are you looking for? Who will suit the role and complement the current group of people?
Do you need someone with a tenacious attention to detail? A big personality who people are drawn to and adore? Get to know the various personalities for your job roles, your audience, and the wider environment.
These questions have never been more important to ask, as we navigate the changing world of work, alongside COVID-19.
The easiest way to do this is by categorising your team (and future talent) into one of four bird types. Tick’s personality profiling tools will help you do this. You can use these ‘bird personalities’ to reduce conflict, improve relationships, and create a happier, supportive office.
It’s also important to preface that conflict isn’t always bad. Constructive conflict can solve problems, push projects forward and increase empathy within teams. Again, it comes back to knowing WHO to bring in when there are unresolved issues.
Soft, lovely Doves are too agreeable and will see all sides (ah, we love you). Owls will come from a logical angle and Peacocks will command a room.
Use Tick’s four bird types to mediate conflict and get more done… without any Twitter rants.
