Versatility: How to Make Better
Connections for Better Outcomes
The meeting wrapped with an interactive
presentation by Francie Dalton, founder of Dalton
Alliances, a C-level consultancy specializing in
enhancing connections in the workplace. Dalton
identified eight personality archetypes in the
workplace. Based on the skillset of these eight
personalities (i.e. commander, drifter, avoider,
achiever, etc.), Dalton explained that each type
offers invaluable assets to the workplace when their
behaviors are optimized.
A colleague may appear to have more of the
drifter qualities where they appear to have a lack of
structure and orderliness, but these personalities are
often the most innovative in a company.
In sum, Dalton encouraged audience members to
find the strengths of their colleagues and decision-
makers as a way to strengthen connections.
On an industry level, this message rang loud and
clear: through clear communication and group effort,
it’s possible to continue moving the fragrance industry
to a safer, more innovative and creative space.
