Part of HRDQ's best-selling Style Suite, What's My Style is a personality style assessment for management development training. Individuals identify personality style, improve their people skills, learn how personality drives behavior, and improve interpersonal interactions. By responding to a simple 18-item inventory, participants will learn their preference for one of four basic behavioral styles, how a preferred style affects behavior, and how to capitalize on strengths/combat weaknesses to create greater success in their lives.
How It Works
Uses and Applications
What's My Style is appropriate for anyone to use for both personal and management development. The style assessment can be used as a standalone training assessment, or it can be incorporated into a more comprehensive training program. It makes an effective foundation component for a variety of soft skills training topics, including:
- Team building
- Supervisory skills
By the end of this assessment, participants will:
- Pinpoint one of four style preferences
- Discover how style affects behavior
- Recognize the strengths and weaknesses of each style
- Learn how to interact with different styles
