Count your blessing if this typeof person ever comes through with anything they say is going to happen. These are those people who promise the world with their flash, but their work fails to follow through. They make things sound nice and pretty, but when the rubber meets the road there is always more said than done. You wouldn’t trust this type with a bag of quarters because they’re always trying to get ahead. Sometimes they can talk themselves out of a corner, but most sharp people can easily smell them”getting of the elevator.”
Style without substance = Not respected.
These are the workhorses. Often meek and shy, they don’t ask for notoriety and acknowledgement, but they always manage to get the job done right. These are the “get it done guys” – the ones you can count on in tight spots. There’s never a lot of talk involved, but they come through in the clutch. Everyone who knows these folks respect them a whole lot, but the problem is that very few people know them. This is not a bad thing, just a choice people make. These are the best type of workers and people that you should have playing for your team.
Substance without style = Unknown.
This is the perfect mix – the goal. Someone who is realistic with expectations, but is always trying to defy the status quo. Ideally this person is kind, and handles their natural influence with grace and humility. Managing your Flash/Results ratio carefully is crucial to earning the respect of others and creating a platform of influence to create something meaningful. In other words you have to consistently talk-the-talk and walk-the-walk. Because when it’s all said and done, there has to be more done than said.
Substance AND Style = Impact.
