Drive can sometimes be seen as negative by the people around us. An individual who has a high activity score (Birkman) may have more drive than others.
Drive: The ability to persevere, sacrifice (when necessary), and expend high degrees of energy to reach high levels of performance.
It would be unfair to label drive as a character trait as this component of leadership illustrates. It has a purpose, to reach high levels of performance. Are you reaching that standard? Is your standard one of an excellent leader or an outstanding leader?
