In the workplace, Gardeners find ingenious problem-solvers heroic regardless of whether those heroes hold high position or not.

Gardeners often envision God as the Great Source of Creativity rather than a Great King with a court. There are no hierarchies in Gardeners’ worlds. Gardeners gravitate toward the tables in the offices, conferences, coffee shops or churches where problems are being solved. And they’re not afraid to pull up a chair because they believe they can contribute.

Gardeners ignore rank. Instead, they afford people respect according to how helpful those people are in solving a crucial problem. As a result, they can be perceived by Knights as insubordinate or arrogant as they take the initiative to solve a problem that is “above their pay grade.”
