Personal style: Doer

It is often thought that creativity and structure stand in the way of each other; Jacques Olivier is the perfect counter-example. Their curiosity is piqued by novelty and they favor stimulating, fast-paced work, but this does not stop them from producing high-quality work. They are careful not to become complacent, and focus on seeing their projects through to completion. They go about their work independently, focusing more on their mission than on the relational aspects of their work.

The ideal culture for them

Jacques Olivier thrives in cultures geared towards relationships and a collective spirit, where human aspects are prioritized, and everyone feels like they belong. This means environments where rules are adapted to ensure everyone's needs are accounted for. They avoid results-driven or data-driven workplaces. They need a culture where collective accomplishments are valued above all, and where collaboration is key to achieving established goals.

How they learn new skills and concepts

Brilliant from an intellectual point of view, Jacques Olivier tends to easily assimilate foreign concepts. They are able to understand new or complex subjects without needing to put them into practice. This means they can develop their skills by researching and reading on diverse subjects. They need to be intellectually stimulated by their work, and might get easily bored otherwise.

Jacques Olivier's spontaneous nature leads them to learn by testing out concepts and techniques themselves. They finds that the best way to acquire new knowledge is to first try, develop their understanding through failure, and then try again. They can sometimes lack patience. To assimilate new ideas or new knowledge, they first need to experiment by themselves.
