Learn How to Capitalize on Your Personality Style

Personality style plays an essential role in all facets of organizational life. It determines how people communicate, manage others, and work as a team. It also drives career choices, performance track records, and workplace culture. Learning what your personality style is and how to use it to work with others is essential.

Discover everything you need to know about personality style with the HRDQ Style Suite. This is a full line of easy-to-use personality style assessment solutions that shed light on key organizational aspects, including communication, leadership, team building, sales, time management, coaching, and more.

The HRDQ Style Model

The power behind the HRDQ Style Suite lies within a simple, but effective, model. Based on William Marston's theory of Human Behavior, the style model defines personal style in four terms:

Direct, Spirited, Considerate, Systematic

Each of these has a combination of two dimensions, assertiveness and expressiveness.

Assertiveness is the amount of energy and effort a person invests in controlling and influencing the thoughts and actions of others. Highly assertive people are active, confident, and forward, while people with low assertiveness are attentive, process-focused, and like to deliberate.

Expressiveness is the amount of energy and effort a person invests in displaying their own emotions. Highly expressive people are social, emotional, and animated. People with low levels of expressiveness are private, independent, and focused.

The meaning behind these four personality style terms is the key to unlocking what drives human behavior. The simplicity of the model makes facilitation easy for trainers — and training memorable for individuals. There isn’t an easier, more powerful way to understand how personality impacts life, both personal and professional.

Why Train on Personality Style?

Personality style training helps people understand why others act the way that they do. Knowing how personality styles work will allow you to:

  • See how style affects behavior in the workplace
  • Recognize the strengths and weaknesses of each style
  • Learn how to interact with different styles
  • Be able to "speed-read" another person's dominant personality style
  • Understand how to "flex" your style to better communicate with others

Your audience will discover things they never knew about themselves, and they can use the information gleaned from the assessment to improve their performance, build rapport with others, and achieve greater success on the job.
