Do you want to use in your work the legendary model created by Daniel Ofman?

Daniel Ofman’s Core Quadrant® model is used worldwide in companies, educational organizations, as a tool to support organizational effectiveness, better communication and development activities for teams and individuals. Over the past 20 years, more than 2,500 professionals have benefited from the certification program worldwide.

Why has Ofman’s Core Quadrant model became so popular?

The current era pushes you as a manager, employee or professional to show results and demonstrate capabilities in many different areas at the same time – which in turn requires you to observe and function in an integrated manner. You’re expected to be a highly skilled specialist and at the same time use your social skills to build relationships with your superiors, other managers and subordinates. Your attitude is the third factor in this puzzle.

Lasting impact can only be achieved if all three aspects – the content you work on, the relationships you build and your individual attitude – all make sense. If one of the three is incorrect, incomplete or missing altogether, you probably end up with nothing. In addition to substantive knowledge and cognitive skills, integrated working therefore also requires self-knowledge and social skills.

Ofman’s Core Quadrant® model offers both individuals and teams a unique opportunity to integrate three key areas of our functioning in life and work:

  • „I” world („What’s going on inside me?”) – attitude, internal functioning of an individual or a team
  • „We” world („What’s happening between us?”) – the area of relationships we have and build with other people

Core quality, pitfall, challenge and allergy – what are they?

A core quality is an attribute that is an integral part of ourselves

We all come into the world equipped with a certain number of traits, which Daniel Ofman called core qualities.

Core qualities are what give a person his/her colour and individuality, what we immediately associate with this person. They influence the ways available to us to adapt, find ourselves and react in different situations. 

If someone talks about a skill he/she possesses, for which he/she is appreciated, that “after all, anyone can do it,” we are most likely dealing with her/his core quality.

A core quality is permanent – it cannot be turned on or off on demand, it can only be hidden.

A pitfall is a distorted form of a core quality

Every core quality has its shadow. This dark side should be seen as a distortion of a core quality involving its excess rather than its opposite. The phrase “too much of a good thing” describes this phenomenon well. It is good to be determined, but excess determination can turn into aggressiveness or pushiness. An advantage turns into a disadvantage.

This brings us to the so-called pitfall, or distortion of a core quality. A pitfall is a negative trait that is attributed to a person.

A challenge is a positive complement to a core quality

Moving on, we come to a challenge, which complements our core quality. A challenge is the positive opposite of a pitfall.

In our example: the positive opposite of aggressiveness could be patience or calmness. These qualities are a challenge for the determined person; his/her task is to find a balance between determination and patience.

An allergy is an excess of our challenge 

And what happens when we come across someone who possesses in excess a quality that is our challenge? Let’s imagine that a determined person (a core quality) who is trying to exercise patience (a challenge) so as not to fall into aggressiveness (a pitfall) encounters someone who displays passivity, i.e. a distortion (excess) of patience.

Passivity in our example will be called an allergy for a person. A determined person, when he or she encounters someone else’s passivity, can quickly fall into his or her pitfall (aggressiveness), i.e. just reacting allergically to the excess of the trait being a challenge for him/her.
