Mavericks are visionaries who want to achieve what’s never been achieved before. Though they do connect with and value people. They are undaunted by risk or failure. Mavericks tend to be innovative, influential, daring, and direct–with a remarkably high tolerance for taking chances.

    Signature work styles

    A Maverick is a force of nature on your team. They will come into a project with a powerful and direct point of view, talking in an animated way about their ideas, making rapid-fire decisions and challenging the team to take risks—arguing that the “end justifies the means”. Confident and quick-moving, Mavericks love to innovate and shake up the status quo, and they will push others on the team to keep up with them, often forcing them out of their own comfort zones.
