What are your Top 5?
How do you see them playing out in your life?
The primary focus in my life and business is to have meaningful conversations and develop trust-ful relationships with others. My Woo helps to connect with others easily no matter who they are. I try to see the best in others and what they have to contribute to their workplaces and lives. I am always excited and positive about the potential impact others may have on their world.
What is your favorite theme?
My favorite is the Woo. I truly love connecting with people in authentic ways. I feel fulfilled when after I meet with someone and then collectively unlock the courage to take action together.
What one theme that gets in your way?
My Includer sometimes gets in the way of me executing tasks and moving projects forward as I am constantly concerned if we’ve addressed all the potential issues with an initiative. It takes time to hold everyone’s perspectives, and it can slow down the process of delivering the fun work we do.
How has knowing your Top 5 empowered you to live a more authentic life?
Knowing my strengths has empowered me to be more of who I am and not work on being better at what’s ‘unnatural’ to me. I admit openly to needing other people to help me execute projects since I tend to focus on relationships and influencing groups. I also talk about my strengths and others’ strengths so that I know HOW to work with others in order to raise engagement as well as do our best work as humans.
