How he manages his energy

Thomas Sharp divides his energy equally between dynamism and stability. Some of his main drivers push him towards taking action and seeking stimulation. However, he also needs a certain stability and sound bearings in order to feel comfortable in a professional environment. It is important that he finds this balance in order to fully invest himself in his role.

The activities he prefers

EVALUATE
Reflect

Evaluating is an activity that highly suits Thomas Sharp. He particularly likes to be a point of reference when evaluating a subject. He likes providing his critical view and his opinions, and comparing them to others'. Evaluating is, therefore, a key source of motivation for him.

ORGANISE
Act

Thomas Sharp likes getting involved in organising and planning work because he needs clear frameworks. It is important to him that the rules be respected. He does not feel a specific need to monitor his progress closely, but rather focuses on following the established plan.

PROPEL
Act

Thomas Sharp takes advantage of the energy that comes from competition. It pushes him to invest himself to propelling projects, and to give the best of himself in order to succeed. However, he isn't always the first to get a project underway because he needs an external driver to get him to invest himself fully.

The ideal culture for him

Thomas Sharp is best suited to cultures that prioritise personal results and accomplishments. He prefers environments that are flexible enough to adapt to change and foster innovation, without letting that flexibility hinder the attainment of objectives. He readily welcomes stricter rules if they facilitate coordination and contribute to achieving business goals. However, he will find routines and highly stable workplaces hard to bear. To maintain a high level of engagement, he needs stimulation from his environment, and a constant sense of improvement and progress at work.

How he learns new skills and concepts

Thomas Sharp has a considerable aptitude for assimilating new knowledge. He can learn from advice and from information he gathers on his own. Although he can find it helpful, he does not necessarily have to put new skills into practice in order to master them.

Thomas Sharp's spontaneous nature leads him to learn by testing out concepts and techniques himself. He finds that the best way to acquire new knowledge is to first try, develop his understanding through failure, and then try again. He can sometimes lack patience. To assimilate new ideas or new knowledge, he first needs to experiment by himself.
