Type A women are usually super focused and practically addicted to accomplishing goals. They have high levels of energy, are wired to keep busy and can often be seen doing multiple projects at once which other people might find difficult to relate to. Despite having impressive profiles, they still feel as they have to achieve a lot more in life. Type A women are also highly conscientious and care deeply. In all areas of their life, it’s important for them to stay on top of things and make sure everything gets executed perfectly whether it’s planning parties or dinners, making loved ones feel special or working on projects.
The downside, unfortunately, is that Type A’s find it hard to trust others especially in terms of work quality and hence delegating is not easy for them. They can sometimes be called impatient, controlling, over-achieving and perfectionist.
I know. I can relate. I am type A too. Well, mostly!
High on interpersonal skills, quite popular & well-liked amongst family and friends (or at least I'd like to think so)and yet when it comes to working in a team, I am not so sure. I have, unfortunately, a very low tolerance for lateness, tardiness, and incompetence. I am driven and very goal oriented as a result of which I am often less accepting of when it comes to anything that gets in my way or any person who doesn’t have the same sense of urgency.
If you relate to any of these characteristics you will find this latest conversation with R&R Shero- Jodi Flynn very interesting and entertaining. Jodi Flynn is a super accomplished woman of many talents and one of my favorite inspirational women coaches out there.
She is also the Founder of Women Taking the Lead, a podcast, and community of ambitious entrepreneurial women who want to go BIG. Her leadership podcast was featured in Entrepreneur Magazine as top-ranked women hosted podcast. Jodi works with Type-A women who are already successful but have not yet achieved the level of success they want to achieve. Jodi helps her clients to see how extraordinary they are and then set priorities, get organized, in action so they can achieve their biggest goals with ease. She became an Amazon bestselling author with the release of her book, Accomplished: How to Go from Dreaming to doing.
This conversation with Jodi is one of the most fun ones I have had recently and if you can relate to the aforementioned type A traits, you will love it too. Jodi says that despite the negative characteristics, sometimes associated with Type A women, the latter are movers, shakers and go getters! They get things done! And I couldn’t agree more ;) Apart from the characteristics of Type A women, Jodi also discusses helpful strategies that can help type A women. She also shares her incredible experience of participating in a Spartan race and how she went about achieving this goal of hers.
