The STAR FACTOR and VERSATILITY

Behavioral patterns have been talked about for a long time. If you are able to gain a better understanding of how you show up and others, it should make your life easier and position you for greater success.


Behavioral profiles (like SOCIAL STYLE) started being used in the 1950s and 60s. They were reliable to help people gain better self-awareness and work more effectively with others. However they realized that even with greater awareness, some people were still more effective than others. When they studied this further they discovered the Star Factor.



What is the Star Factor?


The Star Factor is . . .

  • An open attitude toward others

  • An acknowledgement that people have different needs

  • Having concern for others' needs, comfort and tension.

  • Adapting your behavior to meet the needs of people and situations as needed.

  • A predictor of success

Today we call this Versatility!


People with Low Versatility are concerned about their own needs and tension. People with High Versatility are concerned about others' needs and tension. The research shows people with Higher Versatility are more effective than those who don't.


Imagine a workforce with leaders, managers and team members who have high versatility. It's possible. It's a choice.
