Time and Patience Leads to Outcomes!

“Consider not what others are, but as far as you can what through you they may become.”

~ William of St. Thierry

As a developer, I love team work and working for a common goal. I see others potential and can see their capacity to change, grow and develop for the better. When working as a team and sharing our talents, we can reach our goal and grow as individuals. This growth takes time and patience, but the outcome is worth it!

Success, Growth and Potential = Fuel

by Caralynn Gidych

Developer is for being driven by your talents to create up close and personal relationships with people.

E is for going out of your way to support, inspire, motivate or embolden individuals.

V is for being a very good coach, mentor, and teacher.

E is for encouraging which is a developers favorite thing to do.

L is for the love of investing in others.

O if for being observant and others-oriented when supporting and challenging individuals.

P is for the patience required to be perceptive and notice progress.

E is for the eagle eye used to look for evidence of growth – a new behavior, a slight improvement in skill, or a glimpse of excellence.

R is for realizing that the “fuel” of a developer is helping people succeed, grow, and realize their potential in their unique way.


According to Clifton StrengthsFinder, people exceptionally talented in the Developer theme recognize and cultivate the potential in others. They spot the signs of each small improvement and derive satisfaction from evidence of progress.

March 19th is the Solemnity of Saint Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary. St. Joseph, who was a carpenter, was a developer. Developers are naturally thoughtful and patient. They know that tomorrow will always be better than today. For them, everyone is on a path to getting better at something. Developers are relationship builders. They meet people where they are at, invest in them, and then help them to grow. The best developers are able to see and celebrate small improvement rather than waiting for big changes or end results.

Saint Joseph said yes in a way that few men of his time would. Through faith and love, he remained with Mary and raised God’s Son. His devotion as a developer and his recognition of better things to come resulted in our salvation.

Developers are devoted to each learner and their colleagues. They seek improvement and are talented at knowing how to support incremental growth. They encourage others easily and will thrive when they feel encouraged too. Developers do not give up easily. As a result, they might need assistance in learning when it is appropriate to give up and move on. This is not easy for them because they yearn for everyone and every project to be successful.

When forming teams, look for developers. They see potential, they focus on growth and a better future, and they celebrate victories.
