Johnston’s Profile⎙ print
culture type: competence
Competence cultures value winning and being the best. People are expected to be experts in their field - generalists are not typically appreciated. Performance standards are very high and individuals are expected to stand up for their ideas, rather than focusing on building consensus. The environment is pressure-packed and very individualistic. Because of this, decision-making is thorough and the solutions deemed strongest win out.
- strong opinions, intensive debate, and winning
- individual expertise and very high performance standards
- standing up for one's ideas rather than building consensus
Working With Me
- be informed and direct
- debate the pros and cons with me
