Att jag gärna skulle byta tjänst har nog inte undgått någon. Nu har vi fått göra ett test på jobbet som ska öka kunskapen om oss själva. Jag tycker resultatet av testet var intressant för det känns som ”jag” plus att det faktiskt innehåller en rekommendation om hur man får Laila att prestera ännu bättre.
Jag anser inte att jag har något att förlora på att dela med mig så de som vill läsa gör det och de som misstänker att de bara kommer att reta sig på att jag lagt ut det låter bli.
Laila will most strongly express the following behaviors:
Proactivity, assertiveness, and sense of urgency in driving to reach her goals.
Openly challenges the world around her.
Independent in putting forth her own ideas, which are often innovative and, if implemented, cause change.
Resourcefully works through or around anything blocking completion of what she wants to accomplish; aggressive when challenged.
Impatient for results, she puts pressure on herself and others for rapid implementation, and is far less productive when doing routine work.
Task-focused; she quickly notices and pushes to fix technical problems, assertively cutting through any personal/emotional issues.
Has aptitude to spot trends in data or figure out how complex systems work.
Independent, analytical, critical, and creative thinking and action; little need for external validation before action.
Authoritative and direct, she’s driven to accomplish her personal goals; she pushes through roadblocks assertively. Communication is direct, to the point, and sometimes brusque.
Laila is an intense, results-oriented, self-starter whose drive and sense of urgency are tempered and disciplined by her concern for the accuracy and quality of her work. Her approach to anything she does or is responsible for will be carefully thought-out, based on thorough analysis and detailed knowledge of all pertinent facts.
Strongly technically-oriented, she has confidence in her professional knowledge and ability to get things done quickly and correctly.
With experience, she will develop a high level of expertise in her work and will be very aware of mistakes made either by herself or anybody doing work under her supervision. Laila takes her work and responsibilities very seriously and expects others to do the same.
In social matters, Laila is reserved and private, with little interest in small talk. Her interest and her energy will be focused primarily on her work, and in general she is more comfortable and open in the work environment than she is in purely social situations. In expressing herself in her work environment she is factual, direct, and authoritative.
Imaginative and venturesome, Laila is a creative person, capable of developing new ideas, systems, plans or technology, or of analyzing and improving old ones. She relies primarily on her own knowledge and thinking, with little reference to others, to get things done. She sets a high, exacting standard for herself, and generally finds that others do not meet that standard. To earn her trust, someone must consistently meet that standard and get results; if they can do that, Laila will do whatever
she can to work with them whenever she needs to collaborate.
While she may be perceived by other people as aloof, she will earn their respect for her knowledge of her work and the soundness of her decisions.
As an influencer, Laila will be:
Authoritative and assertive in influencing others towards her goal
Driven to influence others as quickly as possible without sacrificing quality in any way
Eager to completely understand any idea or concept before bringing it before others
Competitive and individualistic in her approach; prefers to work alone and maintain control of the process
Diagnostic in approach; she asks probing questions, ascertains the problem, and applies a solution proven to work
More comfortable answering questions or objections if she’s had time to think about her response and can provide proof to support it.
To maximize her effectiveness, productivity, and job satisfaction, consider providing Laila with the following:
Opportunities to broaden the technical knowledge of her work with learning experience in increasingly responsible positions.
As much autonomy as possible in setting priorities, expressing her ideas, and putting them into action
Recognition for tangible results obtained, rather than for political or selling skills
Freedom from repetition
Technical challenges to which she can apply innovative solutions.
