The qualities of a candidate with high test scores
When it comes to shaping the boldness culture of their new team, those who score high on the Boldness Test will not shy away from being assertive. They understand that in order to get things done and make progress, sometimes you have to take risks. This doesn't mean they are reckless, but rather that they are willing to stand up for what they believe in and go after what they want. They also know how to rally others around a common cause and inspire them to be bold as well.
Can the boldness culture add be leveraged to help a team at a particular time?
A team that lacks a boldness culture may be hesitant to take risks, which can lead to missed opportunities. Hiring someone who is passionate about boldness can help change the team dynamic by encouraging others to be more daring and confident. This person can model brave behavior and inspire others to step out of their comfort zones. With a bolder attitude, the team will be better equipped to handle challenges and seize opportunities as they arise.
