Management Style and Technology Adoption on Employment

Your Organisation Style and Culture - Part One

Every business has leaders, people with their own character and experiences that shapes how they interact with their colleagues.

This survey confidentially assesses the current management style for your organisation, and asks for your preferences for a future business culture. It uses a well-proven model for management style or culture with additional dimensions to allow for the last two decades of social change.

Completing the survey

You can use the 'tab' key to move through the questions, the whole thing should take ten to fifteen minutes.

The descriptions overlap and seem contradictory, they are idealistic representations of the real world and reflect that.

Try not to think about your answers, go with what first comes to mind as you read, your initial valuation.

Judge between 1 for least, or 7 for strongest for the description to match your organisations ways of working.

These scales mean we get quite an accurate perception of your organisation and your aspirations.

There is no right or wrong answer, simply what you feel inside is appropriate.



 

  • Your leadership: is clearly an elite, directs and controls, enforces rules, trusts little, rewards compliance, punishes variance, focuses on money and profits, expects absolute loyalty,  is always right, blames others, can feel tyrannical.

  • *
  • *

  • You enjoy:  being self-reliant, clear criteria for success and recognition, challenging work, being persuasive and opportunistic, being competitive, informality, working with colleagues though often chaotic.

  • *
  • *

  • Your leadership promotes: shared goals, attractive visions, clear purpose, opportunities to contribute, being idealistic and accountable, overcoming obstacles, doing whatever it takes, comradeship, workplace addiction, group-think, obsessive behaviours.

  • *
  • *

  • Your ways of working are: understanding, consensual, sharing mutual responsibilities, appreciative, altruistic, listening, finding the common views, limited by analysis-paralysis, all about the team, fearful of conflict.

  • *
  • *

  • In your workplace: people and leaders accept strong displays of emotion, when things are good you experience positive emotions, when things are difficult you experience strong negative emotions, facts and evidence are ignored, negative emotions are more common than the positive.

  • *

  • In your workplace: evidence and facts are the norm, insight and intuition are little valued, events follow sequences, problem solving is formal, method and process can be obsessive and recursive, complexity is preferred, decisions are often postponed pending further data.
