Revisiting the CV Builders – they obviously have high drive, which is good for the organization. What differentiates them is that also have very high personal ambition. With high personal ambition comes the need to control and dominate others. And anybody who finds the need to “enslave” others is “a-sur”. They do not see the need to “enroll” people instead.
The Organization Builders have low personal ambition, which works very well for the organization itself. They find no need to “control” others; what drives them is the ideation process. These guys often undersell themselves, because they do not know the art of hard-sell. The organization values their worth, but does not promote them. They are soft targets for the “a-surs”.
The Private Empire Builders have low to medium drive, but high personal ambition. Their agenda naturally veers towards filling the drive void. These guys take refuge in being the alternate power centre. Their need for control is satisfied by being the spider.
In this scenario, a CEO has a tough task: – running with the “in-surs” and hunting with the “a-surs”.
