Simpli5 Individual Content (Overview)

Simpli5 Individual Content (Overview)

The individual content, as with all Simpli5 content, takes a strengths-based approach. They are great for getting a better understanding of self. They use a simple language and visual format to express each person’s innate approach to the world.
“Ah, that’s why I enjoy that role so much.”
“That explains why I feel tired after a social engagement.”
The content is immediately actionable in that it provides a starting point for where to focus for a more effective use of people’s energy.
“Seeing my results made it clear to me where I could actually spend more time contributing at work.”
“This made it clear to me that I am connected in the right areas at work.”
The individual content can also bring awareness in establishing the best alignment in a specific role.
“I could see from my results that there was a very specific misalignment of my energy and the role I was considering.”
“Based on my Reserved energy, I immediately saw that creating more support in that area would benefit everyone.”
Your individual content can help you start connecting your energy pattern to your work.

Work Preferences. How do you prefer to get things done? Written in your learning style, this content focuses on your ideal work environment, how you prefer to communicate and interact, and how you approach work assignments.

Consider how your daily tasks connect with your preferred process. Ask yourself some questions to assist in that connection:
  1. What activities at work give me energy?
  2. What activities at work take away my energy?
  3. How does that match with my results?
  4. In what specific areas might there be misalignment?
Energy Map. How do you apply your Energy to any task, role, or project? This content explains how you would naturally engage and perform within each Dynamic of any task or project. You can think of the energy shown in the Energy Map as moving water:
  1. Abundant energy is like a Tsunami wave taking over everything in its path.
  2. Effortless energy is like a current carrying you along in easy, rolling waves.
  3. Deliberate energy is like swimming in calm water; you must apply energy to propel yourself.
  4. Reserved energy is like being in choppy water: tiring and sometimes unpleasant.
Time Map. Time is a critical factor in your success; the Time Map helps you connect how your energy pattern influences how you prefer to spend your time and what time feels like in any given dynamic.

Project Completion Cycle. Our work process is a continuous cycle, a constant movement, an ebb and flow of energy. How do you subjectively experience work as you spend time in each dynamic and shift from one dynamic to another? By understanding how your energy pattern influences your work process, you can create a plan for minimizing or maximizing the effects of these shifts.

Learning Preferences. How do you best learn? Includes your preferred process for learning, keys to your learning, and strategies for others who teach you.

If you are required to process new information but are having issues with any type of learning or shifting into new processes, then how the information is being presented may not align with your preferred learning process. You may start to create alignment with questions like:
  1. What learning energizes me?
  2. What learning process drains me?
  3. Based on my energy pattern, what areas or energies need the most focus to support my preferred learning style?
Leadership Style. Where are your natural leadership strengths and potential blind spots? How can you best stretch yourself to lead a team of diverse energies through a Project Completion Cycle?
