Developer -- Creating Challenging Goals and Cultivating Growth -- Theme Thursday Season 1

On a recent Theme Thursday live webcast, we discussed the Developer theme with Ronny Miller, President of the Gallup Credit Union. Ronny's top five strengths are Positivity, Individualization, Maximizer, Arranger and Developer.

People talented in the Developer theme recognize and cultivate the potential of others. They can quickly recognize the talent of others and derive satisfaction from others' growth. Developer has the vision to see the potential in others. When people grow in their talents and strengths, it gives Developers fuel. Developers are patient, growth-oriented, encouraging, effective, self-sacrificing and helpful. Developer acts as an advisor, stimulator, investor, coach, mentor, teacher, encourager and "stretcher" -- they help people stretch their talents. Developers rejoice in helping others grow and cultivate their talents.

Ronny has worked for Gallup for 19 years. In his role, Ronny helps credit union members achieve financial goals. Ronny understands that talking about money can be uncomfortable, and event taboo. His Developer strength makes Ronny sincerely invested in helping them achieve financial growth. Ronny said, "Financial health is the most rewarding part of my job." Ronny helps credit union members understand that achieving financial goals will help their overall well-being. 

Ronny also manages "a small, but incredibly talented, team." He leans on his Developer strength to challenge each team member. Ronny meets with each of his employees once a week for a one-hour meeting. In those meetings, Ronny asks his team members three questions, "What do I need from you?," "What do you need from me?," and "How can we hold each other accountable until our next meeting?" These questions generate goals for the employees, but also for Ronny.  They drive growth and development for the entire team.
