Managing a Strengthsfinder Command Theme Worker

Put a Strengthsfinder Command in charge when you need to get a project moving again. Ask for evaluations on problems they see in the organization for a sober, brutally honest assessment. Allow the Command person to make decisions and lead without supervision. If a Command is stepping on colleagues’ toes, confront them with specific examples that were “over the line.” Avoid threats, but instead take firm action and demand restitution. Let bygones be bygones because this individual will quickly get over the issue. Your time is best spent convincing others that the Command’s assertiveness also makes them effective. Convincing a Strengthsfinder Command to be more polite or empathetic is not a good use of your time, as this stubborn theme rarely, if ever, changes.
