Workshop personalities

The Outlaw

Provocative by nature, they like to question the status quo, poking holes in ideas during lively debates.

Outlaws excel when the problem requires big-picture thinking. They tend to take over, so should make an effort to encourage others to speak up. Outlaws thrive in workshops that are led by an experienced facilitator who can help guide the conversation.
