Gallup Definition: 

People exceptionally talented in the Developer theme recognize and cultivate the potential in others. They spot the signs of each small improvement and derive satisfaction from evidence of progress.

"I am patient with the inexperienced and unseasoned."

"I will get satisfaction from the growth of others."

"I bring a commitment (time and energy) to human growth."

"I need someone to invest in."

"I love human potential and progress."

"I hate wasted or unrealized potential."

"I might have the tendency to waste time on low performers."

Action Items:

If you have Developer as your dominant talent, you may consider these action items:

  • Seek roles in which your primary responsibilities will be in facilitating growth. Teaching, coaching or managing might prove especially satisfying for you.

  • Notice when your friends and colleagues learn and grow, and enhance their growth by sharing your specific observations.

  • Make a list of people you would like to help develop.

  • Identify the mentor or mentors who recognized something special inside you. Take the time to thank them for helping you develop.

  • Partner with someone with a strong Individualization theme. This person can help you see where each person's greatest strengths lie.

  • Carefully avoid supporting someone who is consistently struggling in his or her role. The best development action you can take is to encourage him or her to find a different role - one that fits.

Note that these action items only serve as guide.
