Here is a recent example from my own life. I am in a nine-month program called Generating Transformational Change and in a sub group charged with a task to present something at our next retreat. We are spread all over the globe and were communicating via email. Typical of me in my Behind-the-Scenes Interaction Style, I held back and waited to see what others wanted to do. This waiting involves more that my Informing preference, but the way I communicated it didn’t. One person posted an idea and got a little feedback. I posted a couple of times that my time was limited closer to the event and we needed to get started. No one came forth with an idea or a suggestion to get started. Then I created a straw man suggestion for people to respond to and there was no response other than one person wanted to have a conversation via Skype. That was all she said, so I got a bit angry, set up Doodle scheduling for when I thought people would be ready. No one replied, but another person said, let’s just schedule a call rather than see who can be there. Then action got started, finally, the call was set up and we had three productive calls, but still aren’t done and the retreat is next week. It will all work out and I’m pressure prompted so that is fine. Yet, was the frustration necessary and the waste of my time setting up the scheduling?
