Work Styles

Aligning an individual's natural work style and abilities with their position is critical for maximizing potential and productivity. Fortunately, I've been able to learn more about my unique styles by taking assessments through my employers in the past. 

 

Some key takeaways from a past assessment are shown below. Continue scrolling through the page to learn about the Kolbe A Index and my results from that assessment. 

DISC Assessment (Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, Compliance)

(Natural Style): D-3.7, I-9.2, S-3.5, C-3.6

(Work Style): D-7.8, I-6.7, S-1.9, C-3.6

This assessment shows that I am naturally approachable, flexible, and good at multitasking. My work style shows that I am fast-paced, competitive, and direct. Furthermore, I am a problem solver with a great sense of urgency. I thrive best in environments where imagination is rewarded and there is a lot of personal contact with others.
