      Frequently asked questions

      What is a work style?

      Work style is your preference towards work - the way one goes about their day-to-day tasks on the job, planning and organizing workloads, thinking about work, as well as communicating with other team members and clients. Everyone has their own valuable approach to work which helps them to perform tasks optimally and effectively. For example, a job that requires communication, collaboration, and a significant amount of planning requires a very specific work style. Knowing your work style can help you maximize your time at work, communicate better, be as productive as you can be, enjoy your work and succeed at it. All this by recognizing the roles and responsibilities you excel in. Work styles in terms of methodology used here are directly tied to the Department of Labor's O*Net database of key 16 work personality and behavioral traits for a wide range of jobs.

      How to assess my performance at work?

      Evaluating one’s performance at work is linked to one’s work style. A few questions that you can ask yourself to start include: are you more efficient when working independently taking charge of your own schedule or are you more of a team person? Do you prefer having a bigger picture or do you focus on details when problem-solving? How well do you deal with time pressure? Performance can also be evaluated using a science-based personality self-assessment for work preferences based on a psychometric tool for assessing work styles.

      What are the different working styles?

      People with different work styles are all valuable team members in their own unique way. There are various different working styles that include the following:
      - Rational – a logical, analytical, and linear approach that is data-oriented.
      - Detail-oriented – paying close attention to details when problem-solving. Being precise, sequential, planned, and organized.
      - Big picture-oriented – having an integrative and ideation-oriented approach.
      - Impulsive – being expressive and emotionally oriented.
      - Easy-going – staying emotionally stable, not easily annoyed, worried, or upset
      - Cooperative – preferring working as a part of a team, brainstorming together with others, having a team to give feedback on your ideas, providing support, and helping you stay on track.
      - Working in solitude – being more efficient when working alone and independently while taking responsibility for your own schedule.
      - Working under time pressure – some prefer taking time thinking and gathering inspiration for new ideas, while some are more action-oriented, take those ideas and quickly turn them into reality.
