Dear Leader: You are Not a Slave to Your Tendencies.

Dear Leader, you are not a slave to your tendencies. Choose your behaviors intentionally.

No matter what the dozens of personality test results say about you, your behavioral tendencies are not permanent fixtures of who you are.

Behaviors are meant to be flexed and adapted to affirm our values, improve our communication, and better serve the people around us.

Personality style is not your anchor point, values are. Choose your behaviors intentionally.
