Implementer, Innovator, Inventor or Visionary?


Do you know if you are an implementer, innovator, inventor or visionary?  Many of us go through our careers not fully realizing our potential because we have not successfully identified our strengths. We have been too focused on being what we believed everybody else expected us to be?  Does this sound like you? Let’s look at where your strengths lie and stop being one of the crowd.

implementer

 

 

 

 

 

An implementer is

• a specialist in cause and effect
• someone who is integral to the team’s success
• one who executes processes

An innovator is

• someone who takes the ordinary and make it extraordinary
• a person who improves processes and work on efficiency
• a builder and developer of teams, products and services

An inventor is

• someone who can take an idea and make it a reality
• passionate and driven to make a difference
• a risk taker

A visionary is

• a lateral thinker
• creative and a big picture person
• able to project outcomes based on ideas and concepts

Don’t fit in any one category? You are not alone. Each of us usually is a mix of 1,2,3 or all of the categories. The key to your success is to understand where your strengths lie and tap into roles that make the most of what you have to offer. Other skills in other areas can complement your dominant strengths.

Get the mix right and you will be invincible!
