Building a MacGyver Culture: 10 Characteristics of Resourceful People

Resourcefulness is the ability to quickly find clever ways to overcome difficulties. Historic inflation on the heels of a global pandemic have created a challenge that demands a resourceful culture. It’s time to meet the challenges head-on with a willingness to embrace evolving possibilities, opportunities, thoughts, views, and suggestions. The pivot has replaced standard procedures! Toni Blake’s 2023 program establishes ten characteristics of a “MacGyver Culture”.

  1. Never Quit Team Spirit – See the UPside of downtimes
  2. Permission for Collaboration & Creative Ideas
  3. Open Minded Vision: Redefining Possibilities
  4. Workflow Solutions for Swift Implementation
  5. Optimize Time & Talent
  6. Seek Innovations to Reduce Costly Mistakes
  7. Practice Patience: Seek Clarity in Goals Before Acting
  8. Simplify Procedures
  9. Imaginative & Intelligent Problem Solving
  10. Celebrate Success

A MacGyver Culture requires top-down permission for innovation and forward-thinking change, with clear workflow solutions in place for quick approvals to redirect resources. The resourceful mindset finds a way!
