Collaborator background

Collaborator

Collaborators are approachable, outgoing, and great at assisting colleagues. They won’t impose their will on anyone—they are more likely to support decisions, initiatives, and projects that are already in motion. Collaborators are empathetic, patient, casual, and cooperative.

What could you do with PI in your organization?

Signature work styles

Collaborators will always be asking you what you think. Open, approachable, and inclusive—they will seek a third, fourth, or fifth opinion on ideas before they decide. They are not likely to insert themselves into a situation proactively, and once there, they will be cautious about taking risks unless everyone agrees. Collaborators are more comfortable being responsive to requests,  building a consensus, and then delegating tasks to the team.
