Do you know your preferred thinking style? Do you dive right in or make sure the facts are straight? Below is a summary of how people tend to think. That’s not to say we don’t have the ability to think in alternative measures, it’s just that people tend to have preferences.
Upon completion of the profile, you will immediately have full access to your results. How will you think?
Where this becomes even more interesting is in the analysis of an organizational TEAM. What if your team has a tendency to think in one way? Will this make it naturally harder for a team to accomplish certain tasks?
Your organization might wish to understand the collective preferred style of a team or a group of teams.
As a first step to better productivity in innovation or in everyday communication, understanding the preferences of your team members can help your company extract more when “making business happen”. Although people tend to have a preferred style, everyone can be taught to respect all thinking styles.
Once you understand your teams preferred style, you can understand why a team functions the way it does and create opportunities to “fill in” require thinking styles for innovation in different parts of the process.
To the left is an actual example of the collective profiles of an engineering team that wanted to get new products to market.
When seeing the diagram of the group, we were able to realize the need to get more of the team to “think like generators” during the innovation process. By doing this, we are capable of making teams more productive.
