Yucks: Potential Soul-Sucking Tasks and Situations at Work
If your values get questioned or pushed around; if your work or company culture is misaligned with your beliefs
Yays: Find Work You Love
When the team prioritizes and even sacrifices for what's most important; getting to do things the right way, and being around others who want to as well
Blind Spots: How Your Talents Could be Perceived as Your Weakness Zone if Your Strengths are Overused or Misapplied
Stubborn or set in ways; might appear self-righteous, which can confuse your "they're such a good person" reputation; refuses or avoids "meaningless" tasks
Feeding Strengths: How You're Perceived at Work When Feeding Your Strengths
Passionately lives out core values, even at work; has clarity and conviction — people know who you are and what to expect of you; inspired by purpose and lives it out
Honored: Situations and Cultures that Feel Aligned with You at Your Natural Best
Deeper meaning to tasks and relationships; being given something worth believing in; seeing that their work is important
Insulted: How You Might Get Insulted at a Values Level
Pushing on ethical boundaries, or worse, being asked to breach your moral standards; obsession with money and power; others constantly breaking rules or feeding egos; an insincere approach to business — you get satisfaction when values and purpose are honored, so being around selfish acts can make you feel like you're working in the wrong office
