What's My Team Member Style
Part of HRDQ's best-selling Style Suite, What's My Team Member Style is a team-building assessment that identifies team member personality style and develops the interpersonal skills needed for effective teamwork.
Easy to use and easy to apply, the assessment measures team member preferences for one or more basic behavioral styles: direct, spirited, considerate, and systematic. What's My Team Member Style also includes a feedback component that gives individuals a sense of how others view them. Combining the Paper Assessment with peer perceptions enables individuals to understand their behavior better, learn how to adapt it to improve interpersonal relationships, develop rapport, and, ultimately, become more effective team members.
How It Works
What’s My Team Member Style is designed to help individuals identify how they behave on their team, capitalize on their strengths, and learn how to interact effectively with their team members.
The What's My Team Member Style assessment starts with an 18-item inventory that takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Each item is a pair of statements relating to team member behavior. With a limit of five points, assessment-takers distribute points between two statements in each pair – indicating the degree to which they feel each statement describes their behavior.
Scoring the assessment reveals "My Team Member Style Profile" and a dominant preference for one or more four personal styles: direct, spirited, considerate, and systematic. In addition to the self-assessment, the What's My Team Member Style Feedback Form allows individuals to gauge how they are perceived by others on their team.
