    Creative Drivers: Those leaders who are not afraid to take the detours to get you where you need to go, personally and organizationally. They follow their gut-hunch that there is more than one way to get to the goal. On their way they discover new neighborhoods of thought, energy, and relationship that encourage them forward to new ways of leading rather than just zooming from point A to point B. They may not be the most efficient immediately. Not only do they get one to the goal, but creative drivers gather insights, confidence and an arsenal of possibilities for goals yet to come. Stop signs only give them pause to look both ways…and then keep going.

    How about strategic drivers who organize their day so they avoid rush hour traffic? They may also use in-car navigation to get accident updates so they can reconfigure their route to bypass life’s unexpected challenges? If they are excellent at “strategery” they may even use a courier service to avoid several trips a week (outsourcing?). A truly strategic driver may question the need to drive at all, choosing instead to video conference, have groceries delivered to the home, and bicycling when it’s time to meet friends at the pub.

      Great insight! I especially like the idea of outsourcing to be more strategic in the movement from A to B. Thanks!!

    I would add me as a “Hurry Up, Get Out of My Way” Driver. I am not angry, but I have places to go and people to see and I don’t have time for you to smell the roses while you are driving. Needless to say, I am a Type A personality.
