Strengths

  • Mature

  • Confident

  • Clarifies goals

  • Good delegator

Positioning

  • Coordinators are well placed when put in charge of a team of people with diverse skills and personal characteristics.

  • Coordinators are best at helping others work toward shared goals. They are quick to spot individual talents and to use them in pursuit of group objectives. Give them opportunities to organize new teams or select talent for new roles.

Development Opportunities

  • Over-delegation could become a problem as your strength becomes a weakness so be sure keep a work list of direct responsibilities and review with a supervisor for accountability. Can be seen as manipulative and could be perceived as offloading your own share of the work.

  • Oftentimes Coordinators perform better in dealing with colleagues of near or equal rank. Consider coaching or mentoring with those that are great at leading / directing junior subordinates to build experience and improve leadership capabilities.
