As part of Forbes’ Supporting Today’s Workforce series, Career Bliss Contributor, Kathy Caprino, interviewed Business Chemistry’s co-authors Kim Christfort and Suzanne Vickberg about how leaders can use Business Chemistry to get the most out of their teams.
“A one-size-fits-all approach won’t work well on a team with a mix of types, as each type has different preferences in the workplace and different kinds of interactions or situations that can kill their potential or unlock it,” says Kim Christfort, National Managing Director of the Deloitte Greenhouse Experience.
Suzanne Vickberg, Business Chemistry’s lead researcher, said leaders can benefit when they have a mix of working types on their team. “You wouldn’t want a team that was all about creative ideas with no focus on implementing those ideas. Or one that was just gunning for the big win with no attention paid to the people involved in getting there.”

Thrive Global has published a new article with Business Chemistry lead researcher, Dr. Suzanne Vickberg, “Essential Questions to Ask When You’re Stressed, Based on Your Working Style.”
“Our research with more than 40,000 individuals has shown that the four Business Chemistry types experience stress differently. Guardians, who value stability, feel stressed more often than their opposite type, Pioneers, who value possibilities. Integrators, who value connections, are more stressed than their opposite, Drivers, who value challenge. We’ve also found that the types use different methods for coping with stress,” writes Vickberg.
“We experience stress when we perceive a threat to something we care about. And because we don’t always differentiate between big threats and little threats, many of us walk around in a state of heightened stress much of the time,” she said.
Read her new byline and learn more about the key questions that may help you better navigate your next stressful situation.
