Communication Styles Assessment


(enable background graphics printing for best results)

Your results from November 15, 2021


Welcome to your results page! Below are the results of your assessment, which include information on four different styles: Action, Process, People, and Idea.

As you scroll down, you will first see your most dominant style and information about that style. You will then see the degree to which you represent that style, and best practices related to your style.

As you continue to scroll down, you will see the degree to which you are other styles, and information about communicating with others who have these styles.

A few things to note as you go:

  • There are no right or wrong styles. This world – and every team – needs them all!
  • It is not right or wrong to have specific degrees of different styles. If you have a high intensity in one style, it’s just good to know that you may strongly exhibit behaviors of that style. If none are very dominant, it may be that you adapt to other styles more easily.
  • Take note of whichever style is your lowest. It may be that you have the most difficult time communicating with those who are dominant in it.
  • Remember that if you like this activity, you can go deeper with your team, board or other groups with our meaningful training and team-building sessions!
