Hiring and Personality Types

January 1, 2015

As a founding partner of group46, a thriving marketing agency in Bluffton, South Carolina, we make it a point not to avoid any specific personality type during the hiring process. We feel that every personality has its own specific niche within the workplace. Along with that, we work to ensure that the appropriate personality matches the position that they are assigned to. For example, we would not have a person with an entrepreneurial personality type in an accounting position; you would need a rules and compliance personality within that role.

The key to assigning personalities to specific positions within a company is to have each team member focus within their natural fields of strength, so that everyone is working to support a more collaborative, collective whole.

These theories are based on Spiral Dynamics: Mastering Values, Leadership and Change by Don Edward Beck and Christopher C. Cowan.
