Independence and Self-Reliance:
Directors are content and even energized by solitude. They value their autonomy and are capable of accomplishing vast tasks on their own.
Focused and Productive:
They are naturally goal-oriented and have a strong work ethic. Their ability to maintain focus often results in successful careers or significant achievements.
When faced with high-pressure situations, they remain composed and resourceful. They excel at finding solutions and taking control of chaotic circumstances.
Director’s are often connected to a strong sense of purpose and mission and are good at doing whatever it takes to make it a reality.
THE DIRECTOR GROWTH GOAL:
Train how to come back into connection with self (and then with another) in
increasingly shorter periods of time.
PATHWAYS FOR GROWTH
Cultivating Emotional Awareness:
Directors can begin by acknowledging and processing their emotions, even when uncomfortable, to foster emotional growth and self-understanding. This includes recognizing and naming their emotions and the physical sensations associated with them.
Nervous System Regulation:
Training their nervous system to shift from an activated state to a state of connection is essential. This helps them manage stress without resorting to emotional shutdown.
Directors can practice tracking their emotional triggers and taking proactive steps before overwhelming emotions take hold, allowing them to respond more constructively.
Learning how to initiate repair after a trigger is essential. Valuable growth is for a Director to learn how to come back into connection after a trigger.
Director’s can grow immensely by recognizing the value of seeking emotional support from trusted individuals. When they learn they don’t have to do it alone, a whole new side opens up.
