‘The Six Types of Working Genuis’ is an online self-assessment tool that helps leaders and managers better understand their team’s strengths and weaknesses. According to the author and creator of the assessment, Patrick Lencioni, “”if you want to be successful and fulfilled in your work, you must tap into your gifts. That can’t happen if you don’t know what those gifts are.” The assessment takes just 10 minutes to complete but provides a wealth of information to users centered around the “6 Types of Working Genius:” Wonder, Invention, Discernment, Galvanizing, Enablement, and Tenacity.
Bea says, “For leaders, it helps us delegate tasks and establish a well-balanced team. For individuals, it gives us insight into what brings us joy in the workplace.”
