In life and in business, results are what matter, provided they are achieved morally and legally. To be successful at achieving results, we must determine how we best perform.
- Do you work better alone or as part of a team? If a team, then as a leader or as a contributor?
- Are you more effective working with subordinates, peers or as a supervisor or leader?
- What about structured versus unstructured environments?
I challenge you to think through your work-style preferences by answering these questions and then decide how well your preferences are being met in your current role or job? How much more effective and productive could you be if your work environment better matched your performance preferences? Do you have the freedom and ability to change your current environment and increase your effectiveness?
