Understanding your strengths, weaknesses, and what you can bring to the table is key to a successful workplace. Today on the blog, we’re giving you an inside scoop on our team’s enneagrams, personality types, and how we work best!

“I’m an extrovert! I think out loud and get energy from being with others. I prefer structure and planning. I like to be in the know to ease my anxieties and know the job is getting done. I’m always looking to improve – to do better and be better. I put my trust in God and know that he is with me on both the mountain and in the valley.”
“I value clarity and prefer structure and planning as opposed to spontaneity. I try to refuse to worry too much about an issue at hand, and instead be solution-oriented on how we can fix it. I have also learned that I place huge importance on words, I love feeling reassured that I am doing my job well and it is being recognized, and in turn, I love to provide that for other people as well!”

“I’m a planner through and through – spontaneity is not my friend! I like to have an action plan in place for all of my projects, which is why I also enjoy helping to brainstorm new ideas and solutions to stay involved in the planning process for any task. I prefer direct and to-the-point communication about projects so I can get you exactly what you need, how you need it! I tend to say yes to anything to help out my coworkers, so I like knowing how high the priority is on a project to be able to prioritize my to-do list.”
“I live & breathe for collaboration! I believe that “togetherness” plays such an important role in bringing visions to life & making things happen; especially in partnerships. I am very much a team player & am always striving to do my part to the best of my ability in order to make sure that the team as a whole can continue to thrive! In light of both of these values, I always aim to listen well to others while being enthusiastic & diligent in communicating to make sure the job gets done.”
“I am someone who thrives in a creative collaborative environment where we can bounce ideas off of one another! Although I love working in groups, I do often try to take on as many projects as I can by myself before I ask for help. This is both my strength, and my weakness because I hold myself to a high standard, but it’s hard for me to know when to stop. I prefer to take the weight off of others’ shoulders! This is why I really appreciate words of affirmation and knowing my help is needed and appreciated.”

“I would say my work style is a silent hustler — if you give me a task, I’m going to do it! I’m a high communicator, who’s never afraid to ask questions & believes in leading through authentic example.”
“While working, I like to seek out others’ opinions when it applies to invoke a sense of community in my own life. I enjoy offering others words of validation when they have worked on something that I’m a part of. I want to feel like someone that everyone can rely on while getting my own tasks done as well.”
“With limited time, I appreciate being given deadlines well in advance so I can plan my schedule accordingly – last-minute deadlines can be stressful to meet! I’m a conscientious worker most guided by my morals and I highly value warmth, kindness, and honesty in my co-workers.”
