Where do you sit on the ‘doer’ vs. ‘dealmaker’ continuum?

On one hand, you have business leaders who are really good operators, the doers. They have a plan, know their numbers and work that plan. They look for small improvements every day and hesitate to entertain new strategies because they know what works.

On the other end of the spectrum, you have the dealmakers. They quickly get bored of the doing and are constantly on the prowl for the next big idea. They are always on the lookout for a business they can buy, a new concept they can negotiate the rights for or a partnership they can forge.

Some of the most successful entrepreneurs can be equally good at being both doers and dealmakers.

Most business leaders have a little bit of both personalities, with a tendency to tilt in one direction over the other, sometimes even tilting too far in one direction.
