As a helper, you are passionate about improving the lives of others. When others let you into their worlds and accept your help, you feel honored that they chose you to be a part of their life and privileged to be able to help them. Your vibrant friendliness is a special gift that allows you to promote good relationships, establishing collaboration and a spirit of fellowship.
A selfless nurturer, you constantly put the needs of others before your own; no favor is too much for a friend to ask of you. You are humble, considerate, and deeply loyal. You are the type of person that your team members can go to when they are in over their heads, and you genuinely want to help them. You have a strong ability to uplift those around you, reminding them of their worth and encouraging them to let their talents shine. You facilitate insight within the team by engaging all parties involved.
As a team player, you have a gift of anticipating the needs of others. You can often guide the team in discovering new ways to engage customers by anticipating the needs of everyone during problem solving conversations. You contribute to win-win-win solutions that can give your team a competitive advantage.
You are sociable and genuinely enjoy making connections with others. You make the world a nicer place for those around you, and they appreciate you for it.
As a helper, you are very people-oriented and know how important it is to look at the world through an empathetic lens. When you see someone in need of encouragement or assistance, you do not hesitate to lend a helping hand. Even when you have a full plate, you make space to meet the needs of others before attending to your own.
You fear not being loved, lack of security, and not being good enough. Fear is a healthy emotion that alerts us when it is time to get prepared. Fear alerts us to the fact that something needs assessing. When you live in the space of fear it can become paralyzing and confusing. The feelings of anxiety and overwhelm can present themselves as guarded and tense. The opportunity is to embrace the fear as your friend. Shift the shallow breath to a deep breath and ask yourself, “Is this fear justified?” If so, “What do you need to prepare for?” It is also an opportunity to shift your story. Are you telling the story of helping vs enabling, doing your best vs overcommitting, or being true to yourself vs being who others need?
