What personal characteristics do professionals have?

Many transition professionals are idealists. Their ambition is to create a more sustainable world and have the drive to achieve the necessary changes. Perseverance and a certain optimism are other common personal characteristics. These traits help transition professionals to deal with opposition and cope with lengthy change processes.

Open working style

Transition professionals have a feel for the group of people they need to bring together to achieve something and have an open working style. They are motivated by the attainment of short-term results or by the connections they make between people and organisations. They are not seeking power in the sense of wanting to win and gain control over situations and others. First and foremost, transition professionals want to achieve transitions.
