The Western working culture often praises over-achievers. Yet, that can often lead people, especially those with the Achiever talent, straight into burn-out basement behavior. I enjoyed watching a marketing director use her Achiever talent to not over-achieve, but rather to infuse a strong work ethic into her team. When others on her team would lose energy and focus on a long project that went on for months, her Achiever talent exemplified the stamina needed to complete tasks near the end of the project with the same quality as at the beginning. Her ability to break the large projects into steps made it feel like goals we could reach, and made it less daunting overall. The Achiever talent also made her a hard-worker, she was trusted as a fellow teammate, not a disengaged Director, who was transparent with what work she was completing herself.
