    Signature work styles

    Expect a Captain to tell you what to do—but don’t worry, they will communicate clearly, and their ideas are usually both innovative and effective. They work well under pressure, quickly and calmly delegating authority and tasks to those around them—the calm in the eye of the storm. Captains are comfortable making rapid-fire decisions, eager to take great risks for great rewards, and always anxious to get the team moving forward.
