It does not work without a co-maker

The doer would not get very far without participants. It is only through his work that projects become reality. The participant takes that Sinn, who thoroughly ins the leader System comes up, very directly, often understands it intuitively and better than the other roles.

Participants are interested in strategic ones Set and indicators little. You can't lure him with that either. What does the worker on the assembly line care about the department budget, how high are the unit labor costs or how expensive is the maintenance of the facilities are.

He looks into his immediate surroundings, how he copes with his colleagues, that he has time to finish work, that the overtime is paid for and that it is not until Friday evening that the special shift due on the weekend is revealed to him.

The archetypal role of the collaborator is relational. She fixes hers Attention on the social connections inside the system and not on the system services. In this way, she creates a great cohesion in the social structure, develops warmth and well-being, so to speak.

This, in turn, is very important when the system is really being challenged. Only with a close relationship structure will it develop the strength to survive difficult situations.
