Real Life Example: Moving Taurus to His Opposite (Scorpio)

In one of my Conscious Leadership courses, I was explaining CTypes to a group of business executives. Most people really enjoy this subject because it’s fun, interactive, and informative. However, Pat, a man with Taurus Masculine Mind, stood up and said that he “didn’t think that this type of information was appropriate for business executives.” “There’s no proof,” he went on to say, “that this astrology stuff is true,” and he was sure everyone else in the room felt the same way. I told him that CTypes had nothing to do with astrology, noting that his skepticism was a natural Taurus trait and that he had not completed enough trial-and-error testing of CTypes principles to make the concept real for him.

Pat then said, “Well then, why is everyone else skeptical, too?” I suggested we take a poll, asking the group of thirty-two executives how many felt the same way as Pat. One person — the only other Taurus in the group — raised his hand. Pat was shocked that everyone else could be so gullible. We all had a good laugh, even Pat. I pointed out that all CTypes project their own way of thinking onto others. Of all the CTypes, Taurus has the most difficulty accepting anything based on faith. Taurus Masculine Mind has to prove things for himself through direct interaction.

Months later, Pat called to say he was having real problems with his new CEO. The new CEO was more of a “shoot from the hip” type and viewed Pat’s reluctance to dive into the new company strategy as him “not being a team player.” I asked the CEO’s CType, and we talked about how to best communicate with him. More importantly, we talked about how Pat could move toward his opposite, Scorpio. We agreed that he didn’t have much to lose in passionately leaping into the new company strategy. As difficult as it would be for him, he agreed to “go for it.”

Things turned around quickly for Pat. Part of his shift to Scorpio involved sitting down with the CEO and communicating what he was doing. Surprisingly to Pat, his CEO was supportive. Pat dove into the new strategy with passion, looking for every opportunity to make it successful. Soon Pat was back as a valued member of the team, even being singled out as a model for executive change and growth. In the process, Pat also became a big supporter of CTypes.
