Power of People
Power of People
In business, people are our greatest assets. The success of a company depends on how our people effectively work together. People and their strengths and abilities when working together can create marvelous things. Look around you and you’ll see all the marvelous things we humans have created. From mobile phones to airplanes, from computers to skyscrapers and everything in between. The things we create are remarkable! At Taylor Hartman Enterprises we celebrate and embrace the power of People.
Leaders of today have an obligation to help those they lead develop their very best selves. One key part of this responsibility and influence is understanding themselves as leaders. Then they can better understand others and work on overcoming those limitations that are preventing them from achieving success. We have found it all starts with core motive. If you are familiar with Dr. Hartman’s work you’ll know all about the four personality colors and the correlating core motive. If not, I’ll introduce you. There are four: RED: motivated by Power, BLUE: motivated by Intimacy, WHITE: motivated by Peace, and YELLOW: motivated by Fun.
When I was first introduced to these concepts, I was living in China working as a consultant developing products for some of the top companies in the world. I had a great job and worked with some incredibly talented people creating world-class products. But I was not happy. My relationship with my spouse was struggling and I was not taking care of myself. It was hard for me to remember the last time I did something I really enjoyed. Then I met Dr. Hartman and was introduced to The People Code. I began the journey of understanding myself. When I first took The People Code profile my results came back RED, motivated by Power. Then I continued to do some self-discovery work and found I am actually WHITE, motivated by Peace, but had learned some of the strengths of REDs from a RED mother.
This new-found knowledge was the key to unlocking my very best self. It allowed me to celebrate my strengths and see more accurately my limitations. It brought clarity to my needs and wants. I became more efficient at work, communicated more clearly to my team at work, and made time for the things I enjoyed doing. The framework found in The People Code and Character Code showed me how I could be my very best self as a leader, spouse, and individual.
We, at Taylor Hartman Enterprises, understand that organizations are made up of People. Those people each have an underlying core motive that is unique to them. When we understand each other, starting with understanding our individual core motive, we are poised to create magical things. The best organizations we’ve found embrace all of the four personalities. They create cultures where their people, their greatest assets, can learn from one another and share their strengths while recognizing their limitations. One core motive is not better than the other. They all have strengths that contribute to a better organization.
We are excited to share our research and stories about The People Code and how it will help your organization and business become more efficient and productive, communicate more effectively, respect and appreciate each other, and create an environment that will keep and protect your most valuable assets.
