The first step in minimizing misfires with staff and clients is taking responsibility for your results in business and in life. To make that easier, it helps to have a good idea of your natural strengths and inclinations so you have a guide to how you operate. I’ve studied many such tools, assessments, and frameworks, and one of the fastest to take and practical to apply is from my friend and this month’s featured guest on My Quest for the Best, Stefan Swanepoel. Listen to his interview as he discusses behavioral traits in the workplace through the easily remembered metaphor of animals. The conversation includes key details from his NY Times bestselling book Surviving Your Serengeti: 7 Skills to Master Business & Life, and on his web site you’ll find a simple two-minute quiz to help you become more aware of your greatest skills and strengths.
