Gallup Definition: 

People exceptionally talented in the Restorative theme are adept at dealing with problems. They are good at figuring out what is wrong and resolving it.

"I am not intimidated by points of pain or dysfunction."

"I will look for the bug in the system, diagnose what ails."

"I bring courage and creativity to problematic situations."

"I need problems that must be solved."

"I love finding solutions."

"I hate the idea that problems disappear if they are ignored."

"I might have the tendency to be perceived as negative because of association with problems."

Action Items:

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

  • Seek tasks or roles in which you are paid to solve problems. You might particularly enjoy roles in medicine, consulting, computer programming or customer service, in which your success depends on your ability to restore and resolve.

  • Look for turnaround situations that others avoid. You will enjoy the challenge and you will further your "can do" abilities and reputation.

  • Also look for easy-to-solve problems that offer big results.

  • Think through ways you can improve your skills and knowledge.

  • Give yourself a break.

  • Allow other people to solve their own problems.

Note that these action items only serve as guide.
