What's My Style? Participant Guide


Category: Assessments
Code: 150
A quick and memorable learning instrument that’s appropriate for everyone in your organisation. By responding to a simple 18-item inventory, participants will learn their preference for one of four basic behavioural styles, how a preferred style affects behaviour, and how to capitalise on strengths/combat weaknesses to create greater success in their lives. ALSO ONLINE*.

What's My Style? starts with a style assessment in which individuals are given 18 pairs of adjectives. With a limit of 5 points, assessment-takers distribute points between the two adjectives in each pair – indicating the degree to which they feel the word describes their behaviour. Scoring the assessment reveals a 'My Style Profile' and a dominant preference for one or more four personal styles: Direct, Spirited, Considerate, and Systematic. Completion of this assessment will require approximately 10 minutes.

If you are planning to use What’s My Style in a classroom training session, we recommend you allow approximately 1 hour for interpretation of style assessment scores, topic discussion, debrief, and action planning.

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 programme. It makes an effective foundation component for a variety of soft skills training topics, including communication, leadership, team-building, and supervisory skills.

If you are familiar with the MBTI or DISC assessments, you will find that What’s My Style is a practical and easy-to-use alternative style assessment.
