The Six Types of Working Genius
Far too many people and workplaces suffer from inefficiency and demoralization because they don't understand and leverage their working genius. As a result, people don't do the kind of work that gives them joy and energy, and projects are marked by needless conflict, bottlenecks and dead-ends. This is a grave tragedy on two levels.
First, it leads those people to lose confidence in themselves.
Second, organizations and teams that don't tap into the true genius of their members can't come close to realizing their potential. They are left puzzled by their inability to achieve their goals. This often leads them to make inaccurate and hurtful judgements about one another, and to feel unnecessarily guilty about their own shortcomings.
The solution is for people to identify their areas of working genius, as well as their areas of life-draining weakness, and to put themselves in a position to tap into their genius more and engage in their weakness less.
That is what this assessment is all about.
