Yucks: Potential Soul-Sucking Tasks and Situations at Work

Cliques or a feeling of in-groups and out-groups; witnessing intolerance or exclusion, especially when you can tell that person wants to be heard

Yays: Find Work You Love

Shrinking the gap between in and out groups by making room for more viewpoints; seeing the emotional intelligence of the team expand

Blind Spots: How Your Talents Could be Perceived as Your Weakness Zone if Your Strengths are Overused or Misapplied

Indiscriminate; resents selectivity; indecisive if a voice is missing

Feeding Strengths: How You're Perceived at Work When Feeding Your Strengths

“Welcome to the neighborhood” teammate; drives performance through diversity; gives quiet people a voice

Honored: Situations and Cultures that Feel Aligned with You at Your Natural Best

A room for everyone's perspective; new people being assimilated into the team — both new hires and people you occasionally collaborate with

Insulted: How You Might Get Insulted at a Values Level
