Documentation, preparation and just being precise in corporate America has never been more important. Good organizational practices are key in teaching new employees the way your company does things, complying with regulatory bodies such as the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and other Federal governing bodies. Good documentation practices can also keep you and your company out of the courtrooms and with your money still intact. No one knows this better than the Insights Discovery® Color Energy: Cool Blue.
This Is What I Mean
As a case in point, while at the office, have you ever called someone in the office to get an explanation, or to ask a question of any kind of importance, only to have the phone go right to voicemail, but 60 seconds later, you receive a “ping” (a notification of an instant message alert) from that same person? Doesn’t that drive you crazy sometimes? Well, truth be told, this person is strategically trying to either:
1. Avoid speaking with you altogether
2. Really busy and simply was just on another line
3. Was not by their phone
4. Is an Insights Discovery® Color Energy: Cool Blue
What Are The Characteristics Of An Insights Discovery® Color Energy Cool Blue Personality?
Insights Discovery does personality assessment profiles for businesses across the world similar to a Myers-Briggs personality assessment, but more in depth. When a person takes a profile assessment, their results will be sprinkled over the four Insights Discovery® Color Energies with one of the four colors, Fiery Red, Sunshine Yellow, Earth Green and Cool Blue, leading the way.
A person who leads with Cool Blue in the phone vs ping scenarios from up above is most likely choosing to ping over call, not because they don’t want to speak with you (which actually could be one of the reasons as people who lead with this color tend to be introverted), but because they want their reply, or your reply to be documented to cover their tails in the event something down the road goes wrong. They now would have a paper trail to clear their name and/or avoid not being prepared for any given business situation.
The Classic Characteristics Of A Person Leading With Cool Blue
A person in your office who leads with this color will have a hard time not displaying to you and other co-workers that they are very formal and are usually very conservative. These people will also display that:
• They are an introvert
• They are very thorough
• Want to be correct by being prepared
• Are cautious
Fears Of The Cool Blue Personality
A co-worker, or even a boss for that matter, leading with Cool Blue is very cool as they will make your team very organized, prepared, accurate and ready for just about whatever business issue that shows its ugly face. However, this person is not superman or superwoman, they too have fears. Some of the fears this person will do everything they can to avoid are:
• Not being prepared for a big meeting
• General embarrassment
• Having to move and process very fast, as sometimes speeding up means more mistakes
When a person leading with a Cool Blue energy is on your team, they will be systematic, and the process will be very important to them.
