Each type has a strategy in human design, which reveals how we’re each meant to create opportunities for ourselves. There is often a lot of misunderstanding around the strategy piece of human design, so I wanted to share a few notes on what it may look like to honor your strategy in your career.

The Projector strategy is to wait to be invited; the Generator strategy is to wait to respond; the Manifestor strategy is to inform and initiate; the Manifesting Generator strategy is to wait to respond and inform; the Reflector strategy is to wait to be invited and initiated.

For Projectors (wait to be invited):

  • Take time to cultivate mastery and dive deep into your craft.
  • Recognize how valuable and needed your gifts are.
  • Courageously make yourself visible and share your offerings with the world — online, in community or with friends. Make it your job to let the world know you exist.
  • Let the right people resonate with and come to you.
  • Stand tall in your worth and value when people come.
  • Invest your energy in the clients and collaborators who make you feel deeply seen, recognized and treasured for your gifts and for your perspective.

For Generators (wait to respond):

  • Create space to prioritize your joy and do what lights you up — this will make you magnetic to aligned opportunities.
  • Open up your awareness and begin to pay attention to what shows up in your world, like a podcast, client, job posting, etc.
  • When your gut lights up in response to something that shows up in your world, honor your response and pursue that thing.
  • Release the need to know where it’s all going; know your only job is to follow your gut and make the right next step.
  • Remember, you’re meant to do business and build your career in the way that feels good, not in the way you think you should.

For Manifestors (inform & initiate):

  • Take time to rest and reset when your body calls for it.
  • When an inspiration or urge arises within you, run it through your authority to confirm it’s right.
  • Once you feel it’s right, move into action and follow that urge.
  • Release the need to know where the urge is taking you; trust the fact that it came to you is enough reason to follow it.
  • Consider who will be impacted by the decision and give them a heads up before you fly.
  • When the time calls for it, give yourself permission to hand off responsibilities you no longer have the energy for, freeing yourself up for the next thing to initiate.

For Manifesting Generators (wait to respond & inform):

  • Create space to prioritize your joy and do what lights you up — this will make you magnetic to aligned opportunities.
  • Open up your awareness and begin to pay attention to what shows up in your world, like a podcast, client, job posting, etc.
  • When your gut lights up in response to something that shows up, visualize the possibility of you doing that thing. If it’s a yes in your gut, honor your response and pursue that thing.
  • If people will be impacted by the decision, give them a heads up.
  • Give yourself permission to pivot and shift direction along the way.
  • And remember, you’re meant to do business and build your career in a way that feels good, not in the way you think you should.

For Reflectors (wait to be invited & initiated):

  • Plant yourself in spaces and around people that feel good. This makes you available for aligned opportunities to show up.
  • Pay attention to which opportunities make you feel the most cherished, recognized and seen for your uniqueness.
  • Pay attention to which opportunities support you in honoring the ebbs and flows of your energy and expression.
  • Take the time to feel into and talk through an opportunity to confirm whether it’s right for you; move at your own pace in decisions rather than getting lost in others’ pressure or urgency.
  • When the sudden knowing drops in that it’s right for you, trust your knowing and follow it.
