Assessment Result: NURTURER


Nurturers are warm, empathetic, understanding people who enjoy nothing better than solving “people” problems. They work to build long-term relationships. They lend a willing ear and are good listeners. They prefer not to impose their will on others instead they are more apt to offer suggestions. Because of their warm nature, they can be very effective in getting their way. They will do the job with a friendly and kind demeanor. In a supervisory role, Nurturers tend to be attentive and give adequate recognition to members of the group. They have a lot of patience for customers and fellow employees alike.

Nurturers can sometimes be too trusting and tolerant, which can lead to being easily taken advantage of due to their seemingly endless patience with both customers and fellow employees. They may take criticism a little too personally so they will respond much better to positive reinforcement and compliments for a job well done. Nurturers may find difficulty confronting performance problems directly. They may be too indirect when supervising others, issuing assignments, or giving orders.

Nurturers tend to care more about people than completing the task at hand, therefore you may find that they need a bit more direct supervision because of this. They also may need assistance in setting realistic goals and meeting deadlines.
