Recap -- Theme Thursday: Restorative
(Sept. 25, 2014)

On the last Theme Thursday, we discussed the Restorative theme with Gallup Learning and Development Consultants Angela James and Curt Liesveld. 

Those with strong Restorative talents bring a solution-oriented mindset to daily problems. They readily take on projects that others believe “can’t be saved.” They can analyze a situation, identify potential shortcomings, and make the necessary adjustments.



Individuals with high Restorative talents tend to be more comfortable with problems than others, and they have the ability to find the root of a problem. The motivating factor for finding the origin of a problem is the subsequent quest to land on a solution. This is why the Restorative theme falls into the Executing domain.

Having strong Restorative talents doesn’t necessarily mean that an individual is actively anticipating problems. But when a problem arises, they are quick to react confidently. 

Angela pointed out that her Restorative talents cause her to be her own worst critic. When she receives criticism -- even when it is constructive -- she will quickly try to find a way to fix it and determine what caused the criticism in the first place.

How do you use Restorative in your everyday life? Share your thoughts on the Called to Coach Facebook page.
