The characteristics of a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) have been discussed and researched in depth over the past few decades. Dr. Elaine Aron is the Psychologist who first identified the trait and pioneered the research of people who are HSP’s.
Based on Dr. Aron’s work HSP’s bring the following to business:
- Deep thinking – the ability to approach a situation from many perspectives and develop solutions to circumstances that are outside of the business norm.
- Capacity for trailblazing – they have a predisposition for innovation and seeing situations clearer and from varying perspectives.
- Attuned to details that are not visible to others, they see the voids and gaps that others overlook.
- Leadership ability that allows others to bring their best to the table avoiding the command and control scenarios found in many businesses.
