What’s My Team Member Style? and the other titles in the HRDQ Style Series™ are based on the well-known research and personality theories of psychologists Carl Jung, William Moulton Marston, and others. Most research has identified two basic dimensions of style, which we refer to as assertiveness and expressiveness. Assertiveness is the effort a person makes to influence or control the thoughts or actions of others. Expressiveness is the effort that a person makes to control his or her emotions and feelings when relating to others.
How It Works
Participants respond to 18 statements using a pressure-sensitive form. After scoring is complete, easy-to-read charts allow respondents to quickly scan the strengths and trouble spots that characterize their particular team member styles. To better understand how they are perceived, individual team members can then view Feedback Forms provided by their fellow teammates.
The Facilitator Guide features optional activities that allow participants to practice using flexibility when working with other styles. These activities utilize Feedback Forms (completed by team members prior to the training session) and StylePlay. Each Participant Guide provides a worksheet for positive personal action planning, a diagram for creating a team profile, and team action planning.
Uses for What’s My Team Member Style?
What’s My Team Member Style? is an excellent way to kick off any team-building training and can be used as a stand-alone tool or as part of a larger program. It is most effective for members of intact teams who are in the training session together. The assessment can also assist team members in identifying work roles that fit with their team member styles.
