Growth Strategies #36: Working Genius

The Working Genius Assessment is a tool that helps you to identify your strengths and weaknesses about your work.  It can also help you understand how you work best, and how to optimize your work performance. This assessment is often used by employers as it is useful to know the assessment outcomes of yourself and others that you work with if you are part of a team.

Good for: Find out how you work best, and how to work well with others in a team.
Best completed by: You and a trained practitioner to help you get the best out of scores

The assessment was designed by Patrick Lencioni to help leaders identify and develop the strengths of their team members. The tool aims to provide a framework for understanding how people think, work, and interact, and how these preferences impact individual and team performance. By better understanding the working genius of each team member, leaders can more effectively utilize the strengths of the team as a whole.

The assessment will ask you questions about your daily routine, your work environment, and your goals. Based on your answers, Working genius will offer personalized recommendations for how you can optimize your time and effort. In addition, the assessment will allow you to set up a customized productivity plan.

The Working Genius Assessment is based on four key dimensions:

- Thinking preferences: How do you prefer to collect and process information?

- Working style: How do you prefer to work? Do you like to work independently or as part of a team?

- Interaction preferences: How do you prefer to interact with others?

- Performance preferences: What motivates you and how do you prefer to receive feedback?

The assessment provides individuals with a score that indicates their preferences for different ways of thinking. For example, some people may prefer to think intuitively, while others may prefer to think analytically.  Individuals can gain a better understanding of their thinking preferences and how they can best use them.

By understanding these four dimensions, leaders can more effectively match the strengths of their team members to the tasks at hand. This results in increased productivity and improved team morale.
