- Gallup Theme Thursday Webcast Series
- Season 2, Deliberative
- Learn what Deliberative 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 Deliberative.
Deliberative is care. People with high Deliberative are committed to making the very best choices. They are excellent assessors and make outstanding decisions. They engage with what could go wrong to overcome obstacles before they become a danger. Deliberative may seem critical when asking a lot of questions and assessing options, but they are reducing risk and preventing problems. Where others avoid obstacles and risk, Deliberative is bold and brave enough to search for the danger and face it. It is an Executing theme; it is about executing cautiously.
Raw Deliberative looks like anxiety, fueled by fear. Mature is protective, fueled by care. The least likely theme to show up with Deliberative is Woo. Woo and Deliberative together are considered "a cautiousness that can be charming."
