As a servant, you are driven by your desire to do things that benefit those around you. You are deeply compassionate, humble, and incredibly generous in how much of yourself you give to lift others up. You prefer to put others before yourself, often dismissing your own needs in favor of giving rather than receiving.
As a leader, you value the growth and well-being of people and the communities to which you belong. You build strong teams with members who are satisfied both personally and professionally and who contribute high quality work that helps your company succeed. Your leadership style promotes an inclusive environment because you value the opinions of everyone on the team, encouraging them to share those opinions and to actively contribute to the team regularly. You thrive in creating a culture that encourages collaboration and engagement.
You are a hardworking and valuable member of any team. You posses humility that allows you to complete tasks that others may refuse; you are not afraid to take on less glamorous responsibilities if doing so will benefit another. You work tirelessly to lighten the workload of your peers and those close to you, and you love to see the relief on their faces when you shift some of their burden onto your own shoulders. You find purpose in your work when you can improve the lives of the least privileged in society and look for ways for them to benefit (or at least not be further deprived). Your kindness and generosity are greatly valued by those around you.
You feel it is your duty to meet the needs of others. Seeing that someone close to you is struggling tugs at your heartstrings like a puppet master, urging you to do anything you can to take some of their burden away. Enhancing the lives of others is your primary goal in every aspect of your life. You believe that when members of your team feel personally and professionally fulfilled, they work more efficiently with outcomes that are higher in quality, so employee satisfaction and collaboration are very important to you.
You fear not being good enough, not being loved, and acknowledging your own power. 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 personal affirmation vs external validation, hardworking vs overextending, or self-love vs self-sacrifice?
