In any team, who do you think should be the most innovative?

  • Should it be the ‘outlier’ – the crazy person up the back who comes out with stuff from left field?
  • Should it be the most popular member of the group, whom everyone wants to like?

How we define ourselves often sets the boundaries of what we believe is possible for us.  What if you could change your label and change your life?


I met with a client this week who reminded me of one of the ‘pitfalls’ of assessment.  At one point in a discussion, they came out with “I’m not very good like that BECAUSE I am an ENFP”.  I have had other clients say “Oh, but I’m a DI”.
