We all share common characteristics, each of us has our own unique sets of traits and preferences that create our psychological make-up. These form our personality which shapes our perception of the world around us and how we respond to it. Our personality is reflected in our work. Having an awareness of how our personality influences the way we work and why we like or are better at certain aspects of our job more than others can be a powerful driver for professional growth and development.

Psychometric assessments such as DISC, Myers Briggs and Clifton-Strengths are valuable tools for gaining self-awareness.
