And you don't have time to waste ...

This will be a short blog post this week because I am talking directly to the Go-Getters as you are people who want results and don't have time to waste ...
You'll need to adapt to the Go-Getter's style rather than expect them to adapt to you!

Whilst we are all a unique mixture of different ways of being, we tend to have a preference for one of four styles of behaviour. It's the way we usually get what we want. When relating to others, being this focused can mean we miss opportunities or get frustrated with others who don't have the same style as we do.
And you Go-Getters are those fast-paced people who like to get on with the job at hand. You always look for quick decisions that get tangible results.
"You aim to be the best and expect
that of others too!"
What is the point of being anything less than the gold standard? You manage your time ferociously and while you delegate the detail, you have a disconcerting habit of suddenly giving something laser focus if the reward is high enough.
People notice when you are in the room, people may say you power dress, but you would prefer it if people recognised how important it is to be well groomed.
You hate to waste your time so like people to be direct and get on with whatever reason the interaction is for. Once you have achieved your objective, you want to be able to get away and onto the next important thing in your life. As a result, others can see you as intimidating or even rather rude.
Do I still have your attention? Good, read on!
I'll give you one top tip for working with Go-Getters: adapt your style to their way of operating before expecting them to adjust to your way. You will find it easier to do than they will and they will respond once they see what's in it for them.
But why bother? First ask yourself, "What's in it for me?" Now, that really is a Go-Getter question:
You will know where you are with a Go-Getter. They are direct and will make decisions quickly. No messing around wondering if they are going to work with you or not. It will be yes or no and exactly what they will and will not do.
They will follow through and quickly. If they say they will do something it gets done (or they delegate someone else to do it).
They are success focused and will appreciate and reward the results that they get from working with you.
