There are four types of employees, but what kind of workers are we? Do we belong to the positive group? To the perfectionists? Perhaps to the powerful? Or to the peaceful ones? That will depend not only on our personality but also on the moment we find ourselves in life. Experts speak of a direct influence of our personal lives on our professional lives. For this reason, and answering the previous questions, it is most likely that we will change groups throughout our professional life.
The Positive Employee
Positive workers love their jobs, so walking in the office door every morning is no sacrifice. Their level of motivation is very high, and they carry out all their tasks with ease, accompanied by a big smile. They favor an optimal working environment, with their vitality that often spreads to the rest of the team. A sense of loyalty characterizes them to the company that could be innate. Also, they are perfectly capable of working without the direction of a leader, although they welcome your support. Some employee classifications call them “the beast” as they strive to be their best version and achieve impossible goals thanks to their energy.
The Perfectionist Employee
Perfectionists are lovers of details and calendars. They will work very hard to achieve the goals and objectives that have been set, without schedules or external agents having a substantial influence. They are meticulous, organized, controlling, reluctant to spontaneity, and intend to push their limits and correct their mistakes repeatedly. And, for this, they usually ask for feedback. At first glance, it may seem like a privilege, but exceeding certain levels of perfectionism in the workplace can be counterproductive.
The Mighty Employee
This is where leaders or people with leadership charisma come in. They take ownership of work goals and take risks. They are highly trained to manage human teams as they convey trust due to closeness. They like to take the initiative and start projects. When it comes to celebrating a professional success, they are the first to involve the entire team, in addition to sharing the reward. On the other hand, they use empathy to listen and carefully attend to all requests from employees. It is for this reason that, in general, practically the entire workforce will have sympathy for these people.
The Peaceful Employee
The number one rule for being a peaceful worker is to pass absolutely everything through the filter of harmony: criticism, complications at work, personal and professional ties, etc. They flee conflicts and “toxic” relationships. They always maintain an open attitude and are respectful of the decisions made regarding the projects in which they are involved, as well as those that affect them as a person. His attitude can sometimes be confused with carelessness or laziness. However, far from being that reason, they prefer to keep their distance and accept the instructions of their superiors.
Many Human Resources experts strive to incorporate people with solid character into their work teams. But it is a mistake to pretend that all workers have the same work habits or personality since this ends up causing tensions and is not very enriching for the human resources as a whole.
Ultimately, the most important thing is that every one of the employees has a high potential, so that the results of their tasks are of quality and they strive to improve every day. No company would want to have people who only put obstacles and show no interest in getting the business project and themselves to advance and grow hand in hand.
