DGI: You are a natural leader who prefers lots of creative autonomy in your job and you’re okay with some unpredictability in your work.

You’re a natural leader. You have no problem making decisions with confidence. You work well under pressure and people tend to seek out your guidance and direction. You like supervising projects and teams – when you’re involved, things get done. You cheer people on and you bring out the best in anyone that is collaborating with you. You like clear direction and forward progress. If things aren’t moving fast enough, you’ll jump into the weeds to keep the project on track. However, your happy place is more high-level where you can oversee everything. Bottom line, if there’s a goal and a deadline – you’re going to lead the team to meet both.

 In your work, you love it when someone says, “here’s a problem, now go figure out how to solve it.” You’re a creative problem-solver and you like open-ended assignments where you have the freedom to do it your way. You are the ultimate “self-starter.” You are happy to show up everyday and define the work that needs to be done and in what order. You’re really good at being your own boss.  

In terms of your job, you’re comfortable with some uncertainty. You don’t mind working really hard and then having periods of time where you’re not working (enjoying life) and looking for your next gig. You actually like the thrill of starting over with a new project and team of people.
