What kind of PM are you: an expander or a container?

Thought this was a good q via Lisa Zane


I'm like 80% Expander, 20% Container. It's why I love being a collaborative partner. I need the others to help execute the plans we create. It's why i love being a PM.


Expander: Pushes the envelope, dreamer, connects things that others would not think to connect, idea person.


Container: Optimizer, detail-oriented, great at organizing and planning and knowing specifically what to focus on.

I am an Expander wanna-be. I enjoy the Expander portion more but in reality, on the day-to-day, I am 30% Expander and 70% Container

Are you getting opportunities to be more of an expander? Wondering if you even want that.
