IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
Those with a pioneer working style are big-picture thinkers who want to take advantage of opportunities or create new ones.
They tend to not be detail-minded, and they make quick, spontaneous decisions.
Drivers are goal-oriented.
Those identifying with this working style thrive on challenge, results, and winning. They tackle problems head-on with logic.
Integrators can understand the context of moving pieces.
Those having this working style represent the glue that holds the pieces together.
Once you identify your style and the styles of your coworkers, you can use them to improve collaboration as well as recognize your tendencies and biases.
Combining different working styles often creates better output. Alone, you might miss some key aspects, context, or risk beyond your own view.

This is a framework for understanding meaningful differences in people’s working styles. It identifies four primary types:
A one-size-fits-all approach won’t work well on a team with a mix of types.
For example, too many constraints can completely shut a Pioneer down, while a Guardian may withdraw in an environment that feels too chaotic.
A Driver may become very frustrated in an organization that lacks decisiveness, while an Integrator may wither on a team that doesn’t value broad-based input.
Manage the team in ways that support the diverse needs of different types of work.
You wouldn’t want a team that is all about creative ideas with no focus on implementing those ideas. Or one that is searching for the big win with no attention paid to the people involved in getting there.
