- Season 2, Restorative
- Learn what Restorative looks like when you use theme dynamics, and how it combines with and complements your other talent themes.
On this Theme Thursday Season 2 webcast, Jim Collison, Gallup's Director of Talent Sourcing, and Maika Leibbrandt, Gallup Advanced Learning and Development Consultant, discussed the theme of Restorative.
People exceptionally strong in Restorative are adept at dealing with problems. They enjoy figuring out what is wrong and resolving it. Restorative wants to take something that's broken and bring it back to its original glory. Strong restorative brings a solution mindset to daily problems, readily taking on problems others think can't be solved. They analyze situations, identify shortcomings and make the necessary adjustments to resolve things. It is an executing theme, that says "I'm in the problem and I'm moving the problem towards a solution." It has a forward progression to it.
Raw Restorative is problem-focused. Mature is solutions-focused. Raw Restorative takes all responsibility to fix a problem on their own shoulders. Mature is the facilitator of fixing problems. Statistically, Restorative is least likely to be paired with Responsibility in an individual's Top 5 strengths.
