  • Deliberative – “I already prepared for this, I knew the risks.”

  • Discipline – “With structure, routine and order I will be fine.”

  • Focus – “Yes! My best way to get things done: isolation.”

  • Responsibility – “Not coping with your workload? Give it to me, I got this.”

  • Restorative – “We need to fix this.”

The Influencers
