Yucks: Potential Soul-Sucking Tasks and Situations at Work
Broken promises — on the giving or receiving side (both feel horrible); disappointing people or missing expectations
Yays: Find Work You Love
Showing that your word is your honor, even when the activity seemed impossible to finish when promised; following through on commitments, and then seeing how it builds more trust and respect

Can’t say no; martyr project saver; resents that others don’t volunteer
Feeding Strengths: How You're Perceived at Work When Feeding Your Strengths
Brings accountability to the team; deadline hitter; dependable
Honored: Situations and Cultures that Feel Aligned with You at Your Natural Best
Being allowed to earn full ownership of outcomes; respect and trust that matches the dependability and results you bring to the team
Insulted: How You Might Get Insulted at a Values Level
Being given false or padded deadlines; changing priorities and not being told that your project is no longer important (meanwhile you're off toiling)
