Assessment Result: ORGANIZER
Organizers bring a harmonious vibe to your agency. They are attracted to the human relations aspects of the job and tend to be good listeners. They are the epitome of a team player but will maintain a fair degree of independence. They offer friendship and a willingness to be of service to others. As the name implies, they thrive in an environment where they have the capability to organize their days and stick to a routine. They make people feel wanted with their natural responsiveness and have the ability to comfortably fit into an agency or office setting.
Organizers avoid confrontation and their low-key approach may make them appear weak to others with stronger personalities. At times, they may be tempted to bend the rules, in order to appease an upset client or co-worker. If assigned a task, they will need to be given a hard deadline, otherwise, they will procrastinate; especially if the task is a change from what they were doing before. Due to their lack of motivation/drive, they will not be the strong sales lead you may be looking for in your organization.
While they lack the killer instinct of a Sales Leader or a Closer, they will be a good addition to the customer service side of your business.
