Your priorities are largely determined by your quest for power and the importance that you attribute to social status. Obtaining power is what attracts you the most to the project of taking over a business. In your view, the power associated with your control of the business you take over will assure you higher social status. Thus you are prepared to devise a whole array of stratagems to help you succeed in taking control of a business and in asserting your power over it. Moreover, you are not afraid of conflicts, and you feel at ease in tense environments.

What will your options look like?

  • Any type of succession is possible for you.
  • However, your preference will be for a transfer process in which the previous managing director hands over complete control of the business very quickly. It is likely that a managing director who is willing to do so will have the personality of a Governor or an Inventor.
