What's your top 5?
How do you see them playing out in your life?
My top 5 truly define me in both business and person. I have always had a connectedness to everyone in my life. I am consistent in my actions. My moto is go big or go home so maximizer fits perfectly. I take responsibility in life for the good and the bad and love to arrange/make a huge impact thus always creating that WOW experience not only for myself but for everyone around me.
What's your favorite theme?
Maximizer – I have always thrived to be the best of the best. You either give it a 100% or 110% and I have always gone with 110%. I tell people, I don’t care about the 100%, its the 10% extra that makes the difference because very few give it. I have always expected myself and others to give 100% so that is why I don’t really care about it. It should just happen. That little extra 10% is what makes people remember you. It makes people know that when they need something, you will be there. Lets people know that you are able to maximize your time to produce maximum results!!!
What's the one theme that "gets in your way"?
Arranger/Responsibility together. I am such a perfectionist that I find it hard at times to let others help. From planning parties, meetings, training seminars, to simple dinner parties at home, everything has to be perfect. I take so much pride and responsibility in putting my name on things yet reputation can go south quickly if events/training fails to accomplish the WOW factor I am getting better though!
How has knowing your top 5 empowered you to live a more authentic life?
Its been nice to truly reflect on the top 5. For years in life and career you kind of have a sense for what you are good at and what areas you are not so sharp. The beauty of knowing your strengths is you can say ok…now this makes sense, so lets keep doing that, and this doesn’t make sense so lets work on this area. Example. I realize after this test that I have a good/bad relation with my #5 on the list---Arranger. Now I know, when it comes time to ask for help, I have to trust others to stand behind my passion and help me make the outcome even greater. Like the old saying, ‘Two heads are better than one”!
