“The three qualities of people I most enjoy working with…”

Jeff Weiner, CEO at LinkedIn, posted this Venn Chart and comment back in 2014. Like Jeff, I feel that at the nexus of these three circles are the people I most enjoy working with, and I’m grateful to have the opportunity to do that throughout most of my career.

3 qualities

They Dream Big

  • People who can think at massive scale and without limitations.
  • Their vision is inspirational, well reasoned and will change the way teams solve a specific opportunity or challenge
  • Their ideas will transform the trajectory of a company.

They Get It Done

  • Being capable, credible and demanding excellence is an important value
  • Asking others to dream big without delivering on the vision might produce pie-in-the-sky thinking without results.
  • Those with sheer force of determination and inner resourcefulness however know how to go over, around walls or straight through the barriers put up by doubters, skeptics and those threatened by the realisation of visionary goals.

They Know How to Have Fun

  • I want to be surrounded by compassionate people
  • People who not only share a vision, but a genuine commitment to upholding their company’s culture and values.
  • They are team players, don’t take themselves too seriously, and they know how to have fun.
