What's My Time Style is a quick and easy-to-use time management style assessment for identifying personal time management style.

Based on the personality theories of Marston and Jung, the self-assessment measures an individual's preference for one or more of four basic behavioral styles: direct, spirited, considerate and systematic. With this knowledge, individuals learn how to make their style work to their advantage and better understand how to work with others who manage their time differently.

How It Works

What's My Time Style starts with a 21-item self-assessment that takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Individuals choose the statement ending that most closely reflects the way they manage time. Scoring the assessment reveals a "My Time Style Profile" and a dominant preference for one or more four personal styles: direct, spirited, considerate, and systematic.

Learning Outcomes

What's My Time Style is appropriate for anyone to use for both personal and management development. The assessment can be used as a standalone training assessment, or it can be incorporated into a more comprehensive time management, meetings, project management or facilitating.

What do I order?

The What's My Time Style facilitator guide includes everything you need to lead a successful training session from comprehensive background information and activities, to reproducible handouts and even a professional PowerPoint presentation.You will need to order one facilitator guide per trainer and either one print participant guide or one online assessment for each individual learner.

Deciding whether to order online or print assessments? Both versions include a personal style report, full color charts, interpretive information, worksheets, and action planning. The online version is an excellent choice for enterprise-wide training or audiences that are geographically dispersed. It offers 24/7 access, streamlined distribution, and instant scoring. Facilitator support materials will be available to you as a digital download link in your order confirmation. The print version is ideal for facilitators who prefer to oversee scoring and administration of the assessment, and who don't know who the participants will be before the session.
