Chapter Meetings and Events

The 6 Types of Working Genius

The basic concept of “Working Genius” is that there are 6 types of work that happen in any project: Wonder, Invention, Discernment, Galvanizing, Enablement, and Tenacity (resulting is the acronym WIDGET). Research by The Table Group has revealed that most people have 2 of these areas that are their happy place, i.e. the “geniuses”, 2 areas of competency, and 2 areas that are frustrations. Individuals and teams find their greatest productivity, success, and satisfaction when people can work mostly in their genius and competency, and limit the time spent operating in their frustration areas.

The presentation will introduce attendees to the core philosophies of the nature and stages of work, overview the 6 genius areas and their contributions to successful teams, and help leaders learn how to apply this knowledge about themselves and their teammates to overall higher effectiveness. Specific application of group assessments in the form of a “team map” will also be demonstrated.

The Table Group has developed an assessment to help individuals identify their geniuses, competencies, and frustrations, available at www.workinggenius.com. The assessment costs $25 per person.

Unleashed Potential™ is a certified practitioner in the Working Genius model and have applied it with great impact in multiple organizations to increase leader effectiveness, and team productivity and morale.
