Qualities of an Operations Role

Here at Cloverleaf, we have the unique opportunity to gain insights on the people, personality and skill set behind any given role. For each new Cloverleaf customer, we gain data points. While we don’t feel that there is one right profile for a particular type of role, it's interesting to see patterns emerge that can identify aspects common to people filling common roles.

Each month we will highlight a different role’s personality and strengths data that we’ve collected. This month we’re focusing the role of an individual with an Operations Role.

Of those in Operations Roles on our platform, over 30% of their individual top 5 strengths fall into both the Executing and Relationship Building category. People with Executing strengths are known for their ability to get things done efficiently with precision and accuracy. Those with the Relationship Building strength are always thinking about how people fit into the whole picture and create opportunities for others to thrive.

In relation to the Executing and Relationship Building categories, the top 2 strengths of those in an Operations Role on our platform are Achiever and Relator. Achievers have a stamina for hard work and set goals to help accomplish items. A Relator understands what it takes to build a close relationship with others and creates the space for these relationships to become a reality.


Over 70% of those in Operations related roles on Cloverleaf have Thinking and Judging aspects of their personality according to our 16 Types.

Thinking individuals lean toward rational and logical arguments rather than focusing on their feelings. This is not that they don’t have emotions like their Feeling counterparts, but that their emotions don’t normally override their rational logic.

Judging individuals are decisive, thorough and highly organized. They value clarity, predictability and closure, preferring structure and planning to spontaneity.

While this article has focused on providing information about Project Managers’ personality and strengths, many other factors including work style preferences, motivating values, and skills are all critical to understand.
