What do you think after hearing this word?4

If your house were burning down, what would you do? What would you save?Its amazing how fire exposes our priorities. Even if youd save somethingpractical, like your tax records, that still says something about you(probably that you prefer to be prepared and not meet resistance in life)5

Another way to tell what your priorities are is to imagine that someoneyou love was being openly criticized for something that you dont support(lets say, theyre gay but you dont agree with the lifestyle).Do you support them? Protect them? How? What would you say?Our actions in the face of peer criticism and possible ostracizationcan reveal our priorities.6

PROPHETSBest when organization are getting started or are entering period major restructuring and renewal.Strong belief in new products and servicesHigh standard and do not believe in the abilities of people outside their own small groupCREATIVEIDEALISTICVISIONARYcommand

If you work for, ProphetsDo not expect them to provide specific objective or instructionsDo not expect them to follow up on details of your workSeek out them for advice and ideasBe tolerant of their latest ideas, even if they seem illogical and inconsistent (lead them to brainstorm)Realize that prophets do not expect you to share their characteristics (love person who organize and accomplish their ideas for them)

If Prophets, work for you:Recognize their creative abilities and reinforce and encourage those talents. Do not demand that they be well organized or conform to standard proceduresListen to them. They need to know that their visionary ideas are important to youHelp prophets distinguish between their regular jobs and their creative activities Prophets may need to justify their salaries with mundane workProtect them from bureaucrats. Remember that in mature organizations prophets are all too often ignored or eliminatedHave patience. Prophets work not for this quarters results but for the impact they can have the long run.

BARBARIANSExcel when organizations are struggling to survive or to broaden their base or attempting to diversify. Barbarians see themselves as being in life-or-death struggles to accomplish the Prophets objective.High control and direct actionWant others to join the team or move out the wayPrefer to establish a few simple systems and structures while stressing a high degree of task flexibilityIMPLE-MENTERACTION ORIENTEDTO THE POINTcommand

If you work for, BarbariansStraight to the point and take actionDo not expect to be involved in long meetings or consensus decision making.When they ask for your input, be completely honest and direct.Go to Barbarians; do not wait for them to come to you.If you want to discuss be straightforward

If Barbarians, work for you:Be sure that their assignments are appropriate for command and single minded actionLeave no confusion about their areas of responsibility and what you expect to themTake advantage of their greatest talent; working in turnaround situations and managing organization units that are growing fast and need quick decisions.Help them make the transition to the next management stage by encouraging them to involve their people more, delegate more and to consider longer-range factors and outcome

BUILDERSare most valuable when successful organizations are confronted by many opportunities growth and diversification.Believe in the organizations product and servicesThey are interested in the means of production, although their focus their energies on making those means more efficientDetailed orientedConcerned with short-range numbersInitiate leadership shift from command to collaborationDETAIL ORIENTEDBRIDGING COMMAND TO COLLABORATIONNEED CLEAR DIRECTIONcollaboration

If you work for, BuilderOffer clear, specific, written objectives. They hate surprises and believe that you should have a blueprint of your activitiesRealize that they are not world greatest communicators. Help them by initiating they need of communication.Do not expect a great deal positive reinforcement. They take satisfaction from the quality and volume of the products that go out the door and they expect you will, tooRealize that they appreciate creativity within bounds. They more interested in HOW than in WHAT or WHY

If Builders,work for you:Help them to think long termHelp them to understand the need for involving people below them in decision makingRemember they responds to rewards improving in processes (HOW) more than results (WHAT)Do not burden them with too much central-staff help. Offer help, but do not impose it

EXPLORERSsimilar to Builders, but they place their emphasis on increasing the efficiency.They are the organizational members most in touch with customersHighly competitive and enjoy keeping scoreInterpersonal relationships are important to themEnthusiastic and intuitiveHate paperwork and do little or no managingSOCIAL BUTTERFLYEXPLOSIVE IN + WAYEFFICIENTcollaboration

If you work for, ExplorerYou will win points for producing results and gaining new business things an Explorer understands the mostTell them about your plans. They want to know that their staffs have high objectives and expectations and projectionsDo not tell them what cannot be done or what should have been done. Keep your level of enthusiasm high and frame your comments in a positive context

If Explorers,work for you:Remember, that they appear to need your approval more than others do, because they are out in the wilderness most of the time. When they come back to office, they need your praise, let them have itDo not shoot them down, when they seem overly optimistic. Help them to develop more realistic expectations and projectionsWhen they want you to spend more time in the field with customers than you can afford, work with them on making the best use of their timeWhen they do not have the best relations with those whose support they need in production, help them understand the importance of these members of their team. They often have difficulty along this time.

SYNERGISTdo not favor a single leadership style. Instead, they incorporate the different styles of leadership required to succeed throughout an organizations life cycle.Seek social unity, balance teamwork and continuous improvement of products and service (total quality management)Emphasize positive behavioral reinforcement by using symbols, participative decision making, interpersonal skills and high levels of technical competence


If you work for, SynergistBe sensitive of their need to blend and balance the characteristics of Prophets, Barbarians, Builders, Explorers, and AdministratorsDo not expect consistency. Demonstrate flexibility in your own approach to problemsDemonstrate ability in team work, participation, delegation and constant improvement of products and servicesAppreciate the synergists need for emphasizing both the material and spiritual aspects of organizations

If Synergists work for you: Reward them for achieving a balance between the preservation of creativity andthe need for order. Realize that Synergists may want you to increase the amount of time that youspend with personnel in production areas instead of staff areas. Although this isgenerally a good idea, there is still a need to take care of the administrativeaspects of the organization.

ADMINISTRATORContribute most when organizations have entered a secure stageBelieve in efficiency and I maximizing the financial side of the organizationPerfecting management-control systemsTend to take organizations products and services for granted.Not effective in dealing with peopleMake decisions based on data and spend lots of time seeking correct answerUnder Administrators, line managers lose power while staff gains it.CONTROLEFFICIENT ORIENTEDSOLO PLAYERcollaboration

If you work for an Administrator: Realize that he or she is more likely to reward you for conforming than forcreating. Understand his or her essential need for administrative control and discipline.When that control becomes stifling, you must help the Administrator to recognizeyour situation. Recognize who you are and what your ambitions are. If you always work for anAdministrator, you can develop the same characteristics, which may or may notbe the best for you.

If Administrators work for you: Remember that Administrators are good at taking care of details; reward them forthat. Also help them to see the larger picture, direction, trends, and reasons. Keepthem in touch with what is important to the organization. Help Administrators to see their jobs as serving those whose performance shouldbe enhanced by their systems: the Builders and Explorers.
