Your personality creeps into everything you do. The decisions you make, your thought processes, and the way you interact with others. But often, we’re unconscious to it.
Why doesn’t he see my point of view?
Why is she speaking like that?
I don’t understand their behaviour.
We don’t tend to think of different personalities when conflict arises. Rather, we think in simple terms. She’s wrong, he’s right. We think we’re right and, in our mind, we are. But our perceptions are coloured by our personality.
Tick’s personality architecture covers four main ‘bird’ types: The Eagle, Peacock, Owl, and Dove. By understanding your personality type, you can unlock it to your full potential.
Once you understand why you act the way you do (and why others do, too), you can lead with clarity. It gives you the ability to tap into your own motivation, productivity, and actions. From a management perspective, you get a clearer insight into how to serve the people in your team.
You’ve probably heard of these common personality types before:
Don’t do well in groups or going to large events? Focus on networking in small groups and individual connections? If you feel like you get more out of one-on-one contact, leverage this strength.
Visionaries are fuelled by a strong, unwavering mission. Often, it goes beyond profit and rather, their goal is to make a difference. They’re self-confident and are purposeful. And we all know that commitment to a cause is infectious.
Commonly the innovative type, problem solvers tap into untouched markets and industries. They love seeing their ideas come to fruition and respond to customer needs.
Some business owners encourage a self-sufficient approach. Instead of micro-managing operations, hands-off owners set high-level, tangible goals and spend time working on other things – while their team take care of day-to-day tasks.
These personality types are more of a bird’s eye view. Take Tick’s personality profiling test to discover which bird type you are. The insights backed by science, easy to remember (and apply), and most importantly, they’re tailored to YOU.
First, find out who you really are, on a deep intrinsic level, then get to know your team. This is true leadership.
