WHAT IS THE BOSS SUPERPOWER ABOUT?

The Boss SuperPower is a fun personality profile with a serious side. It's based on a validated psychometric model. The aim is to provide meaningful insight in an entertaining way. If you have not found out your own Boss SuperPower, you can do that here. The mission of Manager Foundation is to make work a better place by improving self-awareness, communication and relationships. The Boss SuperPower profile shows bosses what they are good at, potential problem tendencies and how employees and bosses can work better together.

Note: The psychometric model displays tendencies and preferences. People are complex and vary. Obviously there will be some variation according to day, circumstance and relationship. (Most people behave differently to their mother and employees). Pro-tip: Bosses if you feel that any of this does not accurately describe you, use this as an opportunity to open a dialogue with your staff about what your preferences are.

YOUR BOSS SUPERPOWER IS YOUR DIRECT FOCUS ON ACTION

THE DOER:

Your Catchphrase is: “To boldly go - tell me again that it's impossible so I can prove you wrong”

You Like it When: Employees are action oriented, push themselves beyond the comfort zone and are innovative

Some Say:  You're the person who wakes the rooster

Others say: Nike has to pay royalties to you for the just do it phrase

All we know is: You are a boss who's always moving forward and taking action

Your Spirit Animal: Puma

Theme Tune: Get Up, Stand Up

We suspect that you may be the lovechild of Roseanne Arnold and Jay Leno

Primary Power: Action: Action is your first name, where others may waste time going ready, aim, fire, you've already gone fire, fire, fire because you know that with three shots you've got a better chance of hitting the target. Your employees will never have to wait for a decision from you, you work intuitively and don't need a lot of data to feel what's right. You move at a fast pace and people will have to work hard to keep up.

Secondary Power: Enthusiasm: You are the Braveheart of bosses, you can enthusiastically inspire people towards a common goal. People would love to know what type of coffee gets you going but the secret is that your energy comes from your own internal motivation to always be moving.

Tertiary Power: Results: You have a well-honed focus for results and project an aura of confidence and ambition. Unlike some leaders, you enjoy working through other people to achieve your goals.
