GOAL ORIENTATED

Self Image

Behavioural Style

Miss Matiogi is motivated by goal setting, is by nature assertive, fairly self-assured and an individual who is forceful and direct. She is extremely determined to achieve, is adventurous and willing to accept vested authority. Miss Matiogi challenges, originates and explores regularly. She is willing to travel provided that the reason for travel will have a profitable outcome. Being forward-thinking, Miss Matiogi is audacious and is disposed to bypass convention. She takes on responsibility, has a style which is direct, is a strong taskmaster and will apply pressure to others to achieve results. There may be occasions when she may be prone to dismiss people, authority and rules in the quest to achieve. Miss Matiogi becomes impatient when goals are not being achieved quickly enough and she cannot tolerate non-producers. She has a tendency to do everything, rather than delegate, and therefore may not allow enough time for details. Paperwork is likely to annoy Miss Matiogi unless results are dependent on it.

In the current job role this strong willed, independent individual, while preferring to remain strong willed and independent, does recognise that rules do exist and when it matters she will follow the rules.

There are indications that this fast moving, alert individual may also be very independent, firm and persistent, and the possibility exists that when the pressure is really on there may be a tendency for her to be overly independent and indeed be quite rebellious at times. When this occurs, she may be difficult to manage.

Job Emphasis

Independently driving for results

Achieving profitable results

The job should provide a challenge and give variety to those tasks wherein tangible, measurable results can be achieved. The job should also call for logical assessment of facts and data, and the job holder should be given, as far as is possible, freedom from controls and close supervision. There is a need for emphasis on the direction and organisation of an independent operation, group or team. 

Descriptors

Direct, forceful, demanding, mobile, active, alert, inquisitive, shrewd, competitive, impatient, energetic, probing, objective, independent and persistent, asks "what" and "when".

Personal Motivation

Miss Matiogi needs room to move and wide-scope operations. There is an innate drive to be in charge, as well as an innate belief in her own ability. There is a need for an operation with tangible results and for organisational efficiency.

General Comments

There are indications that this strong willed, independent individual, while preferring to remain strong willed and independent, does recognise that rules do exist and when it matters she will follow the rules.

In order to assess this candidates suitability for the job role more thoroughly a Human Job Inventory is recommended. The Human Job Inventory will make an assessment of Miss Matiogi's strengths and limitations against the specifics of the job requirements.

Miss Matiogi's ideal boss will be someone who is clear, specific and to the point. The boss will also stick to business and manage Miss Matiogi in a proactive, driving way that will still allow her the freedom to use her own initiative. The boss should also realise that Miss Matiogi does want freedom from controls and most of all loves to be stretched and challenged.

When Miss Matiogi manages others she tends to judge them by their ability to complete tasks quickly. She often fails to recognise that she can come across to others as someone who is blunt and overbearing.

She tends to influence others by sheer force of character and persistence. At times she may overuse challenge and contest as a means of managing others.

Miss Matiogi is a forward looking manager who is able to deal with many problems.

She is also good at initiating change and setting the pace to get the desired results.

When Miss Matiogi is employed in a sales role she tends to look for quick results. This can have the effect of making her a "big winner or big loser".

She loves the challenge of selling and is a good and sometimes hard closer. She is not really interested in servicing as a concept, preferring only to service when another sale is probable. She may need some coaching in order that she may modify her hard close approach.

When occupying a general role this individual has a tendency to be either outside the team or leading the team from the front.

Never slow to criticise, Miss Matiogi can be disruptive at times, especially when her views are not being listened to. She does tend to produce fast results and is especially good at trouble-shooting.

She needs to be careful to not offend others who may not be as committed to the project in hand.

She works better with the minimum of supervision.
