ACTIVATOR – PEOPLE EXCEPTIONALLY TALENTED IN THE ACTIVATOR THEME CAN MAKE THINGS HAPPEN BY TURNING THOUGHTS INTO ACTION. THEY ARE OFTEN IMPATIENT.

“When can we start?” This is a recurring question for Activators. People with strong Activator talents are impatient for action. They may concede that analysis has its uses or that debate and discussion can occasionally yield some valuable insights, but deep down they know that only action is real. Once a decision is made, they must act. Others may worry that “there are still some things we don’t know,” but this doesn’t seem to slow Activators down. They make a decision, take action, look at the result, and learn. The bottom line is this: Activators know they will be judged not by what they say or what they think, but by what they get done. This does not frighten them. It energizes them.

    that’s ok Andy….everybody has their place in a team….different parts of execution

  5. October 29, 2015 at 12:17 PM

    example….people get sales leads but the company needs CLOSERS to make the deal….different skill set

    Awesome awareness of Activator, Grace! I love the idea of adding in “wait time” and asking yourself if this is just something else to do, or the RIGHT things to do.

  7. October 29, 2015 at 12:26 PM

    Others of us know how to execute and NEED Activators like you to get us started! 🙂

  15. October 29, 2015 at 12:35 PM

    I’m not THAT cheap. I’ll consider it.

  16. October 29, 2015 at 12:35 PM

    could you type the link ?

  17. October 29, 2015 at 12:37 PM

    This beats Meyers-Briggs. But then so does a fortune cookie.

  18. October 29, 2015 at 12:45 PM

    LOVE the Best of Us activity! So powerful for team relationships.

    THEN those Activators need to know that the team will have a plan in place to transition that project to someone that can sustain the project after it’s gotten started so that the Activators can move on to getting the next project rolling.

  20. October 29, 2015 at 12:49 PM

    I would assume Activators essentially need to be told/allowed to “get started” on a project the group has been discussing and strategizing.

    Listening in as a I write curriculum for middle schoolers… this is drawing my attention a little more 😉
