Key Ideas

Working Style

Ever wonder why you have great chemistry with some colleagues and butt heads with others? It comes down to your working styles.

Some people like risks, others prefer rules. Some want consensus, while others want to win.

Pioneers

Pioneers 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.

Guardians

Guardians like stability, order, and rigor. They’re pragmatic, detail-oriented, and risk-averse. 

Drivers

Drivers are goal-oriented. 

They thrive on challenge, results, and winning. They tackle problems head-on with logic. 

Integrators

Integrators can understand the context of moving pieces. They’re the glue that holds the pieces together.

Using the styles at work

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.

Get the most out of people

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.

Business Chemistry mix

You wouldn’t want a team that was all about creative ideas with no focus on implementing those ideas. Or one that was just gunning for the big win with no attention paid to the people involved in getting there.

Manage the team in ways that support the diverse needs of different types.
