The Future of Work
How do you leverage strengths through assignments?
Workplace style? See these tools:
Take the time to engage in formal personal and collective assessment to understand your own and your co-workers work styles.
Make time to share the results openly and talk about how a better understanding of personality, strengths and thinking styles might improve your ability to collaborate.
Use your newfound understanding to assemble and develop diverse teams. Sure you have balance in your working groups? Can you make them better, stronger, or more harmonious by considering new team configurations based on style?
An understanding of styles can help create interoffice harmony. Differences might be more style based than personality based and therefore easier to discuss and manage over time.
Try not to “one and done” your assessment activities. Use them to describe and promote yourself and your teams, and use style descriptors when discussing work on a regular basis.
