Startup, Turn around or Realignment

Frankly I was a bit shocked to realise that I hadn't been blogging since 2014. Of course, I knew it'd been a long time (mostly due to embargo from employers), but I've realised that there's value to publishing my content on a site that's mine and not, say, LinkedIn's.

My first reflection today is that I'm great at leading teams to solve problems and deliver results. I like building teams that make a difference and get things done, while having a lot of fun in the process.

But, secondly, I do this best when there's some element of challenge around starting things up, or turning things around, or maybe making changes to get things back on course. In other words, I don't do well in a routine or stable business-as-usual state.

Of course, I work best in teams. Some recent analysis has marked me out as a "Directing Motivator" and I'm looking forward to developing my strengths in the next venture.

I'll try to establish the blogging routine a bit more frequently once more, but for now I'm just glad to have broken the silence!
