Drivers are characteristic ways of behaving which are usually strengths but may become weaknesses under stress. As change is stressful, drivers tend to creep in to action plans:

  • Hurry up: rush and overlook significant areas (may delay until urgent)
  • Be perfect: first time but takes to long so never finish
  • Please people: without asking – worried to get it wrong/upset people
  • Try hard: something new – but not succeeding or finishing
  • Be strong: must cope – stiff upper lip, avoid own shortcomings, can’t admit weakness
