Personality at work

Personality At Work Training

Personality is a key driver of our behaviours and the way we do our everyday tasks, our Personality At Work training gives you insight into how this happens.

“Martin worked with our team in a 2 hour session on ‘Personality at Work’. He was an engaging and interesting speaker. The whole team enjoyed the session and came away with tips that will be useful in daily interactions with clients, opponents and colleagues.” Oct 2023

The impact of personality

Personality impacts every part of our work. Consider how you write an email, do you draft a brief concise message or do you include all relevant details and context. When you produce a document, do you create a rough draft and share it for contributions, or do you write the complete document and check it multiple times for accuracy. If you’re in a meeting are you impatient for it to get going and stay on track, or are you happy to have some chit chat and catch up with people first.

Personality drives all these behaviours and affects everything we do at work. But we’re not just one thing. We don’t necessarily have one style driving all our behaviours; chances are you’re a complex mix of multiple styles. The challenge is to understand the style that is driving our behaviours when doing different kinds of work, and that’s exactly what this training helps you to do.

ITD Work Styles Model

We have developed the ITD Work Styles Model as our personality model. It’s based on the work of Carl Jung, as are all other models. Our model is easy and quick to understand and simple to apply.


In preparation for the workshop you complete our online questionnaire. It takes just a few minutes and you are sent your numbers and descriptions of the styles by email. Check out the questionnaire here.  

To add to this you can also ask others you work with to give you their perspective on your work styles. They complete a similar questionnaire, and we compare their perspective with yours. Check out our feedback questionnaire here.


Workshop Agenda

The workshop follows this overall agenda, but we adapt this to suit your needs:

  • Introduction to the model.
  • Warning: What any model cannot tell you.
  • The four styles.
  • Your numbers from the questionnaire.
  • Understanding your numbers.
  • Reflecting on your behaviours driven by your personality.
  • Working with and adapting to your work styles.
  • Feedback scores and how they compare.
  • Working with colleagues and clients.
  • Assessing other people’s work styles.
  • Understanding the impact on communication.
  • Using the model to explain the style and approach of clients and colleagues.
  • Possible impact on supervision / management.
  • Summary.
  • Personal actions.


Participants of this training gain a better insight on their own behaviours and those of others.
