Quiz: What Type Of Collaborator Are You In A Business? - Quiz

There are many different types of collaborators out there. Today we’re going to ask you several questions to determine what kind of collaborator you are in a business – be it executive, socialite, or any of the other examples. Let’s find out once and for all! Good luck!


You May Get

Socialite

You're the social maven. Socialites are storytellers and connectors. Sharing project details and updates come as second nature to Socialites because they are more than used to regularly sharing via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Tumblr… you get the point. The Socialite always has a newly updated status, helps carry on conversations, and encourages others to engage. Socialites are great for easing those who are less accustomed to open communication into being more social. Strengths: You're one of the heavyweight users of the system. Your enthusiasm is contagious and pulls others into the conversation. Socialites tend to have better relations across departments and teams and be more influential as a result. Caution: TMI. You tend to share too much information - from what you had for lunch to the color socks you're wearing - and it can alienate all-business-all-the-time users. Be mindful not to get busy with too many water-cooler conversations that distract others. A good balance between relationship-building conversations and work is key. Compatibility: Your natural ally is the Ringleader, who likes to engage in lively discussions. You're also very compatible with the Taskmaster, who may annoy you from time to time, but helps keep you grounded and focused.

Taskmaster

You bring organization to the chaos. Taskmasters may err on the OCD side or be organized to an extreme. No detail is too small, no action item goes unassigned, and no audit log unread. The Taskmaster is operationally focused, using collaboration tools fully to execute project plans. The Taskmaster is the one you can expect will follow up with a task list of action items five minutes after your call ends (and you’re grateful for it!). Strengths: The Taskmaster keeps projects on schedule by reinforcing accountability. You assign tasks, milestones, and deadlines that keep everyone organized. You give others peace of mind because they know you're on top of it. Caution: Your get-things-done mindset can be overbearing for some. Your focus on efficiency can clash with workers who prefer unstructured, ad-hoc ways of collaborating. Keep in mind that some of the best ideas are born from ad-hoc brainstorms and expect deviations from some plans. Compatibility: You are most compatible with the Executive who appreciates your no-nonsense approach to getting things done in a timely, organized, and efficient manner. Your meticulousness keeps the Executive informed of project progress at a moment's notice simply by logging in to see how you're tracking against your milestones.
