As an entrepreneur, you wear multiple hats – marketing, financial, and leadership, just to name a few.
Just like everyone else, you are not good at wearing every single one of them. Additionally, you find that some activities you perform effortlessly, and others are real “work.” That is because, as unique and talented individuals, we are all wired differently.
Research of thousands of entrepreneurs shows that our thinking styles predominantly fall into one of the four quadrants of Visionary, Cultivator, Builder, or Architect. Michael Potts, captaining MyEZOG, rightly named these quadrants as Entrepreneurial Zones of Genius (EZOG).
Focusing on your zone of genius enables you to bring your A game and perform at your best, Potts says. Identifying and working in your EZOG increases your success on your entrepreneurial journey.
A quick brief on EZOG styles:
As you build your team, you tend to attract people like you, and you need to find people you like that think differently. EZOG really helps stimulate and de-mystify the “think differently” space.
Visionaries need Builders, Architects need Cultivators, and visa versa. In business we typically seek similar gender and thinking styles. But in your cofounder, make sure you are adding a complementary style.
So what is the EZOG quiz? It’s 25 questions that help you discover your Entrepreneurial Zone of Genius. The analysis is based on well-proven science, and thousands of entrepreneurs have already taken the test and discovered their zone of genius.
Discovering your own EZOG and encouraging the people you work with to discover theirs will help you all perform in better alignment. When you need to hire someone, seek to add complementary styles best suited to the existing team and the task at hand. Building on your talents and strengths and those of others around you is so much more rewarding and effective than trying to patch over weaknesses.
The EZOG team encourages you to invest ten minutes in yourself, discover your EZOG, and seek out creative ways to spend more time there, working in your Entrepreneurial Zone of Genius.
