Hi Shona,

Good question! It’s definitely important to a Thriver to have a great time and work that feels important – I don’t think anyone wants to waste their time in an unhealthy environment, or doing something that means absolutely nothing to them!

Where I’d say Thriver and Tribe Member differ is that, for Tribe Members, the people and the mission are often the whole point. Whereas for Thrivers, those things are important, but the point is to have a job you enjoy, that allows you to pursue the life you really want to live outside of work. For a Tribe Member, the work is much more integral to their purpose. For a Thriver, work is a means to support them finding purpose beyond what they do to make money. Does that make sense?
