Have you ever taken one of those personality or strength tests like Meyers-Briggs, Strength Finders or another in an attempt to understand what drives you and how you think? Kathy Tagenel says learning what makes you tick can make your business and life choices have a greater chance of success without all the drama.
What seems to be missing from several of the assessments is your action model. How you will make decisions and then take action. I don’t know about you but knowing that information would seem like it would have saved me a lot of pain in my career in corporate and as an entrepreneur.
My guest today is Kathy Tagenel and she is better known as Agent 99 to Bob Burg’s Maxwell Smart but anyone who knows her knows she is a force to be reckoned with in her own right. Kathy shares with us what conative strengths are, the power behind performance, and uses me as a guinea pig to explain my Modus Operandi (MO). Hint, she is eerily accurate!
