Organizers and strategists
The thinkers are the guitar and the harp. They think very differently, and that's a good thing. Basses, on the other hand, are strong organizers, translating plans and strategies into action with great energy. Even though it is tedious, the bass fights through and never gives up. All these are very positive, important features.
What basses can not do is react flexibly to sudden changes. To this they are too cumbersome. They have made their plans and want to go through them, as originally thought. They are completely lacking in lightness. That is why they need an optimistic, unfamiliar presence by their side, which brings this character trait with them.
The trumpet for more ease
This optimistic presence is the trumpet. Trumpets are the exact opposite of the bass. They arrive in the morning, smile, talk, are immediately fully present and always in the center. You can not stop them.
They are very easy on people and build useful networks. Trumpets are universally popular and thus receive valuable impulses from the outside world, which bring them into the team. The bass that prefers to stay alone would never build those relationships and never experience those things. Here the trumpet is a valuable addition.
Trumpets: enchanting and enthralling
Trumpets enchant their environment, tear them away. So they are the perfect ambassadors for the serious bass. They find the right and important contacts, communicate with them, bring all the necessary people and project partners on board.
In the background, the bass will then be used to target all projects and bring them to a conclusion. The serious and disciplined operation of the bass is perfectly supported by the spontaneity and lightness of the trumpet, and this positive and applied energy is positively felt in the company.
Thinkers and strategists
Emotional power, willpower and now the energy we have now covered in the entrepreneurial orchestra. What else is missing?
Well, some thinkers might not be bad. Now let's look at the creative guitar and the critical harp that represent the mind in a team, albeit in very different ways.
The fantastic ideas of guitars
The guitars are the creatives in the company. They are original and full of innovative fantasies and ideas. They love to create new products. Products no one would ever have thought of, products that nobody really needs and that lead to unbelievable success. To better understand how guitars think and what they are capable of: Steve Jobs is a typical representative of a creative guitar.
The ideas of guitars are often met with incomprehension and therefore resistance in companies. That's because they are so often utopian, but above all because the head-in-the-clouds guitars can not make their projects so plausible. They live in their own creative world of thinking in which everything is clear to them. There you solve problems and invent new products. They usually do not create their projects for others to understand and put into words.
Harp: Factor-oriented thinker
This makes the guitar often unintelligible, takes it very badly and draws even more back into their world. That is why the guitar needs a kind of ambassador of their messages into the team, someone who can follow her and then transmit the information to all others in a pragmatic and comprehensible way.
This ambassador must also be a thinker to understand the ideas of the guitar, but a thinker with a fact-oriented approach. This is what the guitar finds in the harp. It is particularly important to place the supplementary power on the guitar. Companies that lose their guitar geniuses lose their creativity and potential for the future.
Harps love numbers, data facts
Harps are also thinkers. But very different from the guitars. They think a lot and exactly. They are very critical and question everything. They can act as translators of the gigantic ideas of the guitars and examine their projects for numbers, dates and facts.
They look through complicated tasks and problems like hardly anyone else. Before making a decision, they would weigh all possibilities and consequences several times exactly. Faster team members may sometimes give the harp a lack of decision-making power, but it simply takes the time it takes to check all the facts.
Orchestra test at the end
The harps also take a close look at the product ideas that come from the minds of the creative guitars, present them plausibly for everyone and explain whether they have been realized Sense can make. This is how two great thinkers meet in a creative and critical way and together provide the important thinking power for their team and for their company.
Take a closer look at the people around you and think about "Which instrument could this or which be?". Give it a try, I'm sure you'll very often instinctively recognize who you're up to.
