After a long hiatus, it is time to be back. I wish I had acquired a knee injury as an Olympic athlete – but it was simply a steep step that unexpectedly did me in. Between finishing a project, getting back into the meeting routine and extensive reading relating to future projects and a new routine of strengthening exercise with ankle weights, I have been ignoring this spot. But that is going to change.
The HBDI came in handy on a recent project. As part of a project team I had the opportunity to ask more than 400 people what they saw as key characteristics of a national leader of a major church denomination. Using the four quadrants to tabulate the results, there was a lower demand for analysis, discernment and paying attention to the realities of facts and figures. That raised lots of questions and led to more exploration. More about that soon.
