We need to use and maximize our style as well as recognize when it needs to flex and adjust to meet the needs of the situation and the people involved. Problems show up when we overuse our style.
Driving hard for results is an impactful style. So is patient commitment to the process. Energetic communication that engages people is incredibly influential. So is setting emotion aside to thoroughly complete a detailed task.
Any behavior style can work. Any behavior style will also get you in trouble when you are unable or unwilling to flex out of it.
Being excellent with your style is being aware of how to leverage it without overusing it when it doesn’t work well for the situation.
Everything is training for something. Do the work.
