Semester 1: Personal Operating Style Understanding how we are designed to operate personally & professionally.

Each of us has a specific way that we operate, as individuals and when interacting with others personally and professionally, that is reflected in our Personal Operating Style.

During Semester 1 we’ll begin to uncover the components that make up this style:

  • Career Type - How you best express yourself in the world. 
  • Personal Interaction Style - How you best interact with others.
  • Decision-Making Strategy - How you can confidently make decisions.
  • Key Indicators - Important signposts to keep you on track.
  • Assimilation - How you take in and process information.
  • Functions - What Functions define your consistent strengths.
  • Shadows & Distractions - Where you get taken off track.

If you were going to tell someone about your unique career design (or theirs) how would you put all this information together?
Tie together and synthesize all the pieces together.

•    Career Type

•    Assimilation
•    Key Indicators


Here are the Individual Pieces

Decision-Making Strategy: Wait to Respond then Wait for Clarity
Functions: Drive and Stamina, Energy Resource, Identity & Direction, Communication and Action, Emotional Intelligence
Shadows: Over Compensating, Unable to let go, Mentally defensive, Losing focus
Assimilation: Independent Assimilation
Key Indicators: Satisfaction or Frustration

Synthesize the all the Aspects of the BG5 Career Design Together

I am an Express Builder who independently assimilates information and experiences. I am designed to do what I love and love what I do. When I am using my Energy Resource correctly, I listen to my gut response and wait until I am emotionally clear so that in my response, I experience deep satisfaction.  I am satisfied when I have the drive and stamina to move in new directions, communicate and express my Identity, and share my emotions openly with others. It is important that I wait until I am emotionally clear before responding, otherwise I will experience frustration (and so will others around me).

My frustration will typically stem from not waiting for that emotional clarity which has me leap into things, then overcompensate, trying to prove myself, and willing my way through something that is typically not what I love to do. I will also hold onto to things that no longer serve me. I get mentally defensive and in the process lose focus. My thoughts are all over the place.

The way back into alignment is to invest my time, talents and energies into doing what I love, waiting for things to come to me, so that I can respond to what empowers me, and wait for clarity to emerge before taking inspired action.
