Yesterday I discussed the concept of adopting different character roles to provide options for approaching difficult issues in work and life.

Thank you to everyone who provided additional roles and characters from the ones listed yesterday. It was great to hear your stories and suggestions and the different actors you see play out in them, either by yourself or by others.

By way of thanks, here is an additional list of characters to choose from based on the feedback from yesterday’s post:

  • Actor/Actress
  • Analyst
  • Assistant
  • Big Brother/Sister
  • Confidant
  • Devil’s Advocate
  • Engineer
  • Executive
  • King/Queen

  • Martyr
  • Partner
  • Peace Maker
  • Prince/Princess
  • Provider
  • Soldier
  • Thinker
  • Villain
  • Writer

There is an infinite number of roles we can play, which means there is an endless number of options on how we can approach our issues.

That’s powerful.
