And then it was rescheduled.
Again, no one was looking forward to this meeting. All week, team members have been complaining, moping, whining, and in general being negative about the whole thing...me included. We were all certain that no one would talk, no one would be positive, no one would provide constructive information.
But we were wrong. All of us.
Have you ever read about Social Styles?
|via. Sorry for the blur|
In the full workshop, your Style is determined by five OTHER people choosing words out of lists that best describe you. Today, we did a self assessment of the same sort.
I had five different people ask me why I wasn't in the Expressive group. I was in the Ambiable group, with a close second in Analytical. Surprised, aren't you? I am a little, but this is how I perceive myself...getting along with others 99%, but I do tend to shut down a bit when I get overwhelmed. I'm very curious to know how others perceive me, since people thought I belonged in the Expressive group. But either way, Amiable for sure...that's my strong one.
Anyhoo, just thought I'd share because this is what's on my mind tonight. I am hopeful that tomorrow, we will be able to start with a clean slate and let go of the baggage that has weighed us down for so long. A strong, nice-to-each-other (you don't need to be friends, but you do need to be friendly!) working group is much easier to accept day in and day out. And let's face it, we spend the majority of our lives with the people we work with. Isn't it nice to all just get along?
Have an awesome day!
