The Boss is a strategic, logical and rational thinker. They love to take charge of situations and are natural leaders. This means they are assertive and like to be in control of everything. Great at analysing situations and making decisions quickly, they put their intuition and intellect to effective use.

As natural leaders they tend to want to take charge. Using their quick mind they develop strategies that will help drive business forward such as improving productivity and efficiencies. Naturally they are drawn to innovation and things that can help improve their work. With this they also have the vision and the passion to motivate the people around them to deliver. They themselves are motivated and extremely hardworking and like to be rewarded by money and prestige.

In a team they use their assertive nature and strategic thinking to see how they can improve processes and get the team working in a very productive manner. Quick to analyse what is going on, they will produce a clear high-level plan on how to do things. They are happy to listen to everyone’s ideas but will be decisive and quickly compile this information into a plan of action and will be extremely confident in their strategy. They’ll then be direct with their communication and will expect others to listen and implement.

As a leader, which is quite often, they organise people and plan for the future. Extremely confident and assertive, they like taking on large amounts of responsibility.
