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

The purpose of What’s My Style? is to help participants capitalize on the strengths and limit the weaknesses of their personality styles.
 
What's My Style starts with a style assessment in which individuals are given 18 pairs of adjectives. With a limit of five points, assessment-takers distribute points between the two adjectives in each pair – indicating the degree to which they feel the word describes their behavior. Completion of this assessment takes approximately 10-minutes, and scoring the assessment reveals a dominant preference for one or more four personal styles:
  1. Spirited
  2. Direct
  3. Considerate
  4. Systematic

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:

  • Communication
  • Leadership
  • Team building
  • Supervisory skills

Learning Outcomes

  • Pinpoint one of four style preferences
