Are you a "solopreneur", an independent professional, or do you have an entrepreneurial approach to your career?
Understanding and leveraging your natural creativity and harnessing the power of your innate motivation makes for work that is sustainable. What this means is that you stop seeing yourself as an endless improvement project.
You can also see, appreciate and work with the differences in others. You can quickly see what to say YES to and where and what to delete or delegate so that you design your work to align with your biggest asset - YOU.
As part of a self-awareness and leadership workshop for executive members of university student groups, I used the MBTI assessment tool. In addition to completing their MBTI profile online and discussing their results, the students used Sandy's book to get a more visual, intuitive feel of the different profiles. It was amazing to see people gasp in recognition as they flipped open the book to the painting that expresses their MBTI makeup, and to see them use the colours and shapes and mood of the painting to talk with each other about their different MBTI results.
