Work style A
Your career is a major part of your identity, and the quality of your work is outstanding! You accomplish tasks effectively and with great attention to detail. “Good enough” is never enough for you, and a half-finished job is unacceptable.
You honor deadlines, and if you promise that something will be done by a specific date, rest assured, you will deliver on time.
You are not one of those innovative types and prefer to follow established procedures to get a guaranteed result. You hate wasting time and money and focus on being productive and cost-conscious.
You like to be busy and do not look forward to vacations. To you, work comes before leisure and even before your family and friends.
You want to work in stable organizations with a clear structure and order. You need clear instructions and a good amount of privacy to be able to concentrate on your job. You are most satisfied when you can produce something tangible.
When put in a leadership position, you lead by example. Being a task-oriented person, you may sometimes fail to meet the emotional needs of your team members.
Work style B
You certainly have a lot to offer.
First of all, you contribute your originality and your ability to see the bigger picture. Because you don’t focus on details, you can see how all parts fit in together.
Second, you are a very relationship-oriented person and can be successful in any position that requires communication.
Because of your perfectionistic tendencies, you may have a little bit of a problem finishing tasks on time. Even when you do finish a project, it may still be incomplete in your mind. You always feel like things can be revised and improved.
You aren’t very good at following rules and regulations because you think that it kills creativity. You need a lot of privacy and a lot of freedom so that you can get things done in your own style.
Generally, you do not seek leadership positions, but if you have to be a leader, you lead very gently – encouraging instead of giving orders, suggesting rather than criticizing.
Work style C
You are a natural leader. Bold and energetic, you naturally take charge of any situation. Your superb problem-solving skills allow you to handle complex business challenges and unexpected situations.
You know how to assess a problem quickly and accurately. Moreover, you aren’t a hesitant type and can make swift and effective decisions.
You are an ambitious person, and you define yourself by your job. While your approach is very strategic and goal-oriented, you are not afraid to take calculated risks. In addition, you are open to new ways of thinking and to learning from others, which helps produce original work.
You are good at time management and enjoy planning and building to-do lists. Having said that, you do not get stuck researching and planning. You know when to pull the trigger.
You constantly scan your environment, looking for opportunities to advance yourself and your organization. Your ideal job should be both challenging and rewarding.
Work style D
You contribute your positivity, optimism and energy, and your co-workers definitely enjoy having you around.
Another reason they like you is because you accept them as they are, without trying to change them or make them more like yourself. Because you have this ability to understand people, you know how to motivate them or how to make them feel better about their situation at work.
On top of that, you are great at idea generation. Because you tend to look outside of yourself, you see a lot of possibilities and opportunities.
Your focus is rather scattered and your knowledge is wide, including many different seemingly unrelated topics. This allows you to make unusual connections and come up with original ideas.
Your networking skills are another thing that sets you apart. You connect people, ideas, resources and businesses for everyone’s benefit.
Having said that, you have two issues that may sometimes affect your career development:
- you are not the most punctual person in the world
- you aren’t good at forcing yourself to do things you don’t enjoy doing
