Please read the information below, which addresses some frequently asked questions regarding the Work Style Assessment Self-Coaching Tool.

How Was It Developed?

To form the basis of the assessment, a team of job experts, auditing professionals, and psychometricians completed a job analysis and profile for each auditor role. Job profiling enables employers to develop a profile and description of the ideal candidate’s characteristics and workstyle for a specific position.

The results create a clear description of the traits and workstyles that will make a difference on the job. 

Here are some examples of sample reports to give you an idea of what your report will look like.

“I found taking the Work Style Assessment to be a positive experience, which gave me valuable insights into my personality traits as well as important observations about my work performance practices. The positive and developmental comments provided for each work style dimension assessed, helped me understand which aspects I needed to reinforce and which ones I needed to address” – Tony Tripi
