Thinking Styles

Thinking Styles


A powerful tool with many applications, Thinking Styles identifies how preferred methods of thought drive behaviour and communication, and provides insight into how these preferences affect the cognitive strategies and social relationships of individuals at work. It provides a comprehensive framework for understanding how individuals think and process information, and can work well in many development contexts.

Thinking Styles is ideal to identify individuals with the capacity to meet the cognitive requirements of new responsibilities, and can indicate which individuals will perform best in roles where thinking quality and strength of working relationships are critical to success. It can be used as an individual development tool, aiding in increasing self-awareness, leveraging strengths, and developing areas of potential, as well as mapping the development of individual thinking over time. By providing its recipients with a model and vocabulary to understand thought process, Thinking Styles can also supplement teamwork and group understanding, improving working relationships and contributing to organisational success.

To maximise the value of this assessment, we recommend using it with Propel, which enables and tracks goal setting and action planning after feedback. To get started using Propel with Thinking Styles, just contact us.
