We’ve heard a lot about quiet quitting in employment circles lately. Studies show that happy employees are more productive, clock fewer mistakes, engage with team members and make better leaders. In The 6 Types of Working Genius, best-selling author Patrick Lencioni challenges leaders to help their people unpack their innate talents and leverage them, not just for the benefit of the organization, but for their own fulfilment.
He defines six gifts, or skills, that are of high importance in a group. These “Six Genius’s” include Wonder, Invention, Discernment, Galvanizing, Enablement, and Tenacity. Within a team, having at least one person with one of each Working Genius’, allows for the most success.
Out of these six geniuses, two typically come naturally, providing joy and energy, (“Working Genius”). Two are not natural and are frustrating, (“Working Frustration”). And two are fall in between – they may or may not come naturally, but they do not provide joy or energy, (“Working Competency”).
Which geniuses do you possess, and which do your teammates possess? How do you best discover and leverage your employees’ geniuses?
