Daily Read- You You Know Your Personality Type, What About Your Work Style?

There is nothing more frustrating than listening to people haggle over different definitions of what constitutes “work.” Catty conversations about who’s working harder, who’s working smarter, or who’s not working at all are more about judging others than solving inefficiencies. To get the most out of your employees first learn how they work best then assign their tasks accordingly. The most effective teams have a balance of all working styles, and the best organizations have many well-balanced teams. There are four basic working styles: Doing, Leading, Loving, and Learning. What’s your style?

1. Doing: Doers execute. They come alive when tasks are complete, lists are checked, or projects are tackled. They typically have intense focus and are detailed in their efforts.

2. Leading: Leaders create the vision and inspire others to believe in it. You can’t help but listen to, admire, and follow the Leaders. Without Leaders, we would be spinning in a hamster wheel with no real vision.

3. Loving: Lovers are relationship-builders. Believing that we’re stronger together, they thrive in harmony and work hard to manage relationships and build consensus.

1. Learning: Learners are the researchers. These engineer types love learning and meticulously understanding the nuances of a problem. They are deliberate, disciplined, and tend to think more strategically than most people.

Everyone has unique strengths that become super-charged once they’re aligned with other people’s strengths. Rather than critique someone who you believe “isn’t working,” take the time to discover their work style and see your team flourish.
