Drivers are known for their ability to turn ideas into reality.
Drivers play with lots of possibilities, and when the spirit moves, they leap to action. They have no shortage of ideas, and when they get excited about a particular idea, they put great energy into implementing it. In the Driver's mind, there is little time to take a breath between the birth of an exciting concept and its implementation. Around Drivers at their best, ideas seem to burst into fruition. Of course, this can happen at the expense of a more deliberate approach to assessing the challenge at hand. Drivers don't tend to dawdle over researching and defining the problem, nor are they very patient with analyzing and refining their ideas. The Driver's strength is the ability to generate lots of possibilities and the confidence to march those ideas right into reality, half-baked or not. Drivers may do well to collaborate with Clarifiers and Developers who can help them to focus on the right problem and be more selective about what ideas they push forward. They can benefit from spending a little more time checking the facts and refining ideas.
