- Season 2, Consistency
- Learn what Consistency 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 Consistency.
Consistency is about having a great understanding of fairness and balance. People with Consistency are great at repeated motion in processes with people and things. Consistency loves to find what works and replicate it. As a theme, Consistency used to be called "fairness" and understanding that history is essential to understanding this strength. According to Maika, "There are beautiful leadership capabilities within this theme." People exceptionally talented in Consistency are keenly aware of treating everyone fairly and setting clear rules and following them. They thrive in giving everyone an opportunity and a fair advantage. Consistency is a guardian and a conscience. Consistency can sense when things are out of balance and bring that balance back. Consistency derives energy from repeating a motion. Consistency hungers for equality because that's how people get the most and best work done.
Raw Consistency can shut down when encountering difference. Mature Consistency notices and appreciates commonality. Raw Consistency say, "That's not fair," while mature Consistency says, "Here is what is fair." Raw consistency can be rigid. Mature Consistency is a leader of safe change. Consistency is not the opposite of change -- it is keeping things fair in the midst of change. Consistency asks, "How do we set up the game so everyone can play?"
