Unsung heroes

A team's success is rarely down to one person alone. It is the sum of the parts that makes more of the whole. People doing extraordinary things unnoticed to take their team forward. They know their own strengths, think long term and put their heart into their work. After all, teamwork makes the dream work.

The broader view

New territory can be challenging. Trailblazers are full of good ideas, though. They’ll often take a step back so they can see how to move forward; looking left and right before focusing on the path ahead. Equipped with the right questions, they get teams over the finish line.

Pragmatism, practicality and positivity

Lots of people. Lots of ideas. And even more opinions. Implementers help the team to find and maintain focus. They're conscientious, reliable and have the discipline that it takes.

On course

Agile, but not directionless. Focused, but not inflexible. Pacesetters have the necessary attention to detail and a feel for the right tempo. Combine that with good client relationships and the team is on course for success.

The thrill of the unknown

New customer, new project, new team. Now what? When getting a group to gel, coordinators set the tone. They are calm, motivated and focused on the goal ahead, helping to ensure that everyone is able to perform to the best of their ability.
