5.0 out of 5 stars Maximize Joy, Productivity, and Retention of Your Team
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on October 15, 2022
If you, like I did in the past, do not fully understand why certain aspects of work energize and motivate you and your team and other aspects are draining, but they vary between person, then order Working Genius for you and them TODAY, Now! After reading Working Genius, and may I boldly suggest, taking the assessment, you will be able to better understand yourself, your team, and adjust work to maximize everyone’s “genius.”

Working Genius and the assessment have been invaluable for our team, even our family. Understanding that my desire to solve problem (Invention) and to rally folks around an idea (Galvanizing) makes sense and also understanding my “frustrations” of Tenacity and Enablement have been very helpful because I had been questioning my real value to our team when I am not excited and feel drained around taking a project to completion on my own. Rallying the team around the idea I can do, taking it to the end, it is draining.

In our marriage it helped me understand that my bride’s “Genius” of Discernment is not her way to criticizing my ideas randomly (business or otherwise) but to help ensure that the things I or we attempt are fruitful.

The Working Genius also gives us language to use when moving through a project. In the beginning we need to think about a problem to be solved, ways to fix it, arguing the merits until a decision is reached and then move forward with rallying the team, encouraging them through the process until we have finished it. As we move through the three key stages it enables the team to let the wonderer know that since we have decided on a solution that questioning it further at this point is not what we need to focus on. Or they can remind me that once we are into the enablement and tenacity phase we do not need additional solutions, but need to focus on pushing through to the end.
