A number of my clients are what might be described as ‘Type A’ personalities. They are restless high achievers, drivers of projects, relentless seekers of deep and long-lasting business impact. They have a direct, results-oriented style and hold themselves to very high standards. In the right role and right organization, this personality type can serve them well – as long as they continue to achieve and don’t drive over colleagues. However, they can severely struggle with resilience once they encounter failure or extreme stress – as I was reminded of recently.
