You know what, there are always 2 types of people. Which type are you? and how does that interact with your stakeholder?
- Motivation: Do you promise heaven, or fear the consequences of hell? Read about Move towards and move away from motivation
- Feedback: do you know you’ve done a good job without even having to ask for feedback, or do you in fact need someone to point out what you’re doing well (or badly)? Check out locus of control and frame of reference
- Approach to change: Read chapter 4 of Consulting Mastery here; or buy the whole book: Consulting Mastery.
And here’s another one of my posts on people types.
And here’s a great overview of MBTI, Enneagram, OCEAN/Big 5, Self-monitoring and a few others.
