“Find out who you are and do it on purpose.” —Dolly Parton
In all projects we undertake, big or small, each of us gravitates toward a certain modus operandi, or style of approaching (and accomplishing) the task at hand. It is important to recognize and embrace your style in order to best utilize your strengths . . . but it is also necessary to honor the styles of those who will be assisting you on your rightsizing journey. (No, you do not need to rightsize alone—that’s another blog for another day!)
So which approach best describes your style?
- Objectives Oriented: You gravitate toward goals and what needs to happen in order to achieve them.
- Domain & Direction: You focus on the final destination and figure out the steps as you go.
- Task Oriented: You know the necessary steps and excel at making lists for what needs to be done.
- Present Oriented: You focus on what’s happening now.
By recognizing your style and those of your assistants, more fun can be had and less stress will occur. Talking honestly about your individual approaches before undertaking a task is a good plan for success!
