IDENTIFYING AND UNDERSTANDING YOUR BASIC DRIVES (Assessment)
This tool is designed to help learners understand who they are and what they do as leaders based, in part, on basic drive preferences. Drive preferences influence the goals one sets, the priorities one selects, methods of work, and the decisions one makes. The tool will help the learner identify positive and negative traits of drive preferences. Each drive type has its positive and negative traits. The positive traits usually contribute to success and wellbeing, whereas the negative traits can cause one's career to stall or derail. Nevertheless, the key to understanding and change is often more related to negative characteristics or things one tends to avoid than to strengths. Improvement and learning are enhanced when learners can “face up” to the dominant and other subtle traits that block them, as well as build on the strengths that are usually obvious to them and others.
