I’ve been fascinated of late by the concept presented by Simone Milasas from Joy of Business about the three types of people every creative project needs. Would you like to see how you feel about it?
Every creative project needs three elements to bring it into fruition AND to give it a wondrous and success-full life. Without all three, a project could be the world’s most amazing thing, but never get seen by those who need it. Or, there could be thousands of supporters for a project that never gets off the ground.
Engaging the three elements, aka, the three types of people who are the Creator, Mover, and Connector, means a project can be dreamed up, delivered and continually energised, shared about and spread throughout the world!
Simone Milasas has detailed the three elements as such :
Creators are the dreamers; the visionaries. They are always looking at what they can generate and create next. Their ability is that they are able to see what is possible in business and in life.
Creators are the people who have new ideas all of the time. They love having the vision of what something will look like. For creators, the beginning of an idea and knowing the future possibilities of that idea generates a sense of joy.
Connectors like to talk and they’re good at it. These are the people with lots of phone numbers in their contact list. They are natural salespeople. They will talk to anyone about anything. They know what to say and when to say it. They know how to truly connect with people and it’s joyful for them.
Movers are … always 10 steps ahead. Their expertise lies in knowing what has to be put in place today to expand the business tomorrow.
Movers are high energy people with lots of ambition. They are continuously looking at all of the possibilities and asking, “What’s required next?” And whatever it is, they make it happen.
Some people can easily be more than one of these elements. You may be a great project manager and marketer (Mover and Connector) or you may create excitement around your amazing project ideas all the time (Creator and Connector). It is difficult to find the time and energy to be all three at once though, without robbing from Peter to pay Paul.
I am first and foremost a Creator, with an ability to Move well, when there are no other creative endeavours to take up my attention. I don’t enjoy talking about what I do to people who haven’t “got it” though, and prefer to let word of mouth do its thing when it comes to my projects. At the same time, I love talking up other people’s work when it is undoubtedly awesome! So I have the Connector capability, yet find my Creator Self expands my business’ reality the most.
It has become clear, that if I really desire to birth the million projects that are brewing at the Institute, it is imperative I engage with people who find the process of being a Mover and a Connector to be a joyful, playful experience that will expand their own Universe. Is that you?
