Building a team?
Everyone will at some point have to play a part in a team or group, however what needs to be recognised is that everybody plays a different role and this needs to be in harmony with their core personality if they are to be effective and collegiate in the team.
There is a mistaken belief that you need to be friendly and outward bound and prepared to go along with every little thing to be a team player. But different roles require different ‘soft’ skills which are controlled by personality.
Groups need people who will take charge. They need somebody who will certainly ask the awkward questions. They require individuals who will take care of the information and an individual who will bash ahead into the unknown. Teams need a really good mix of personality.
