Employers: every time you make people do things ‘my way’ you reduce their effectiveness.
Employees: is your job matched to your nature, so you feel naturally inclined to do what is expected of you?
Most managers claim that their people are their greatest asset, yet few really know how to match up a person's natural abilities with the tasks he or she is given to do. This simple survey—based on recent research into aptitude—reveals exactly how each team member can put their best foot forward at work.
It's not a test: there are no right or wrong answers, only choices which reflect personal preferences. Getting your whole team to do it will reveal where you are under-utilising valuable talent—and how you can support one another more effectively.
