The sample graph in Figure 12-3 shows profile scores for a team leader with a preferred workstyle of an independent worker and an actual position workstyle of supervisor. This person prefers to work independently through managing his or her own work. The position requires coordinating the work of others. Perhaps the team leader wants to perform more direct computer work, whereas the position requires more coordinating, coaching, and scheduling activities than he is inclined to do. This is typical for many technologists promoted to a position of leadership. This team leader may want to consider obtaining some coaching or even making a job change.

With this tool, the workstyles of each team member may be plotted on a summary chart, validating a complementary mix of workstyles, or exposing a conflict or imbalance.
