You excel in the art of identifying business risks.
You are aware of the impact of a possible failure on your business, your teams, your organization, your family. You seek to secure the future by spending a lot of time projecting possible future scenarios. But by trying so hard to control tomorrow, you risk losing agility in the present and missing out on off-field solutions.
You are “wired” performance.
And that winning mindset has allowed you to build a great career. You analyze every situation as an opportunity to do better. But this race for excellence generates stress that you have learnt to live with. Moreover, when the result is not as fast as desired, you judge yourself severely, which involuntarily puts pressure on others.
You are careful to value the work of your teams.
And don’t hesitate to put them forward when you are successful. Yet you may feel uncomfortable when your personal contribution is honored. It’s like stealing the spotlight from those who really deserve it. By not acknowledging your impact, you are slowly eroding your confidence. And when comes the time to take the next step in expansion, you may become hesitant.
You are a visionary.
And bring with great ease hyper innovative solutions to the problems you encounter. You expect your teams to implement them efficiently. And you sometimes find it hard to understand their resistance or slow implementation, which creates tension. You end up doing it yourself to guarantee the result and reach the objectives on time. And you end up losing the strategic perspective.
