Organiser

Value peaceful living and security


Protector GROUP

Organiser is one of a group of Character Types that we call Protector. The Protector, in turn, form a group within our overall Character Family as shown right:


CHARACTER SUMMARY

The Organiser character is action-orientated with a peoplebased focus. The Organiser will channel their drive, energies and pragmatism into people. They are the cooperative, helpful, sympathetic and personable pragmatists, disliking anything ethereal or woolly they prefer practical solutions to people issues and they'll work hard at making this happen.

As with most doers they prefer the concrete, they inhabit the here and now and their desire will be to provide immediate answers and solutions - don’t think too deeply just ‘do’. Asking an Organiser to sit and think things through or reflect before ‘doing’ is not easy as their natural propensity is for action; thinking is seen as a passive activity.

The Organiser makes a priority task of ensuring people are taken care of, and will work long and hard at making sure harmony is maintained. Whilst the Organiser wants everyone to feel valued, they will also want to feel part of the group themselves - they need to feel included. If someone is hurting, the Organiser will be the first to respond.

Due to their caring nature and desire for harmony, the Organiser may find it difficult to take the hard decisions. The Organiser will be good at follow-through, being conscientious and making sure the routine is taken care of, but won’t naturally like the complex or something which is perceived as not clearly getting the intended result or which causes conflict or disharmony.

This also means that Organisers value family links, friendships and tend to be slightly sentimental in their approach. They will want to appreciate and involve others. Under pressure an Organiser may become like the 'controlling parent,' smothering others in their attempt to provide support and believing that their way is best, becoming sensitive to any perceived criticism.


WHAT YOU WILL SEE

Organisers are ordered, meticulous with a high work ethic. They will create process from chaos and seek to make sure there is a place for everything and everything in its place. Consequently they need a work environment where there is clear lines of responsibility and structure OR one where they will have carte blanche to create this sort of environment. So they will do well at tasks that involve creating or maintaining order and structure, and be happiest when they are serving others and getting on and doing, rather than thinking.

  • Extremely organised will want to get on and enjoy creating order
  • Loyal and trustworthy
  • Can be depended on to follow things through to completion
  • Will want to do rather than think too deeply
  • Warm and sympathetic often putting others' needs above their own
  • Practical and down-to-earth
  • Value peaceful living and security
  • Cooperative - receive satisfaction and approval from giving to others


WHAT COMES EASY

Organisers are warm-hearted individuals who highly value their close personal relationships. They are very service-oriented, and their own happiness is closely tied into the happiness of those around them. They are valued for their genuine warm and caring natures, and ability to bring out the best in others. Relationships are central to their lives, and they put a great amount of energy into developing/ maintaining their close interpersonal relationships; they expect the same from others.

  • Putting in a great deal of effort to fulfil their duties and obligations
  • Being positive, up-beat, warm, friendly and affirming by nature
  • Service-orientation, they want to please others
  • They take their commitments very seriously
  • Responsible and practical, they can be counted on to take care of day-to-day necessities
  • Traditionally-minded and family-oriented
  • A strong sense of what is right and wrong
  • Empathises with and cares about other people


WHAT NEEDS DEVELOPING

Organisers are kind, steady and responsible with many strengths, especially in the ‘doing’ ‘caring’ and ‘service’ arenas but they do not handle conflict well. The Organiser wants to jump in and get on with it - immediately solving the problem, often before the situation has been fully analysed. Also with their view of the world dictated by feelings alone they may find themselves at odds with views of the world that contradict their own clearly held judgements based on concrete experience and basic common sense.

  • Seeking out change and exploring new ideas and territories
  • Confronting difficult situations/conflict head on rather than avoiding it
  • Listening and taking on board criticism objectively, not personally
  • Being more objective when it concerns other people’s views
  • Thinking of themselves and their own needs above those of others from time to time
  • Looking at the bigger picture and the wider consequences of any proposed action
  • Building in time to reflect and check before committing to action
  • Controlling emotions, being more pragmatic and objective
