All Aspire Assessments are completed online and the reports generated provide a wealth of information for individuals, teams and their leaders to make informed decisions about how to work effectively.


"Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom."
- Aristotle

That is what the Work Styles Self-Assessment gives you: insight.

Whatever your professional goals may be:

  • To know how I can perform better in my role
  • To understand how I can communicate more effectively with other
  • To uncover aptitudes that I may not know of or
  • To know how I can contribute to my team at work

"Nobody is perfect, but a team can be"
- Meredith Belbin

The easiest way to work together without conflict is if all team members think and behave in the same way …and we know that is not possible. Nor is it desirable. It’s our differences that make us special.

Let the Work Styles Team report help you discover and celebrate your differences as a team. This will solve challenges such as:

  • How to get along better as team mates
  • Problem-solving and making decisions
  • Delegating team roles effectively
  • Addressing potential points of conflict, and
  • Creating a culture that supports your business goals



"Coaching is unlocking a person's potential to maximize their growth."
- John Whitmore

How do you enhance the performance of high potential talents in their current role?

The Work Styles Coaching report answers those questions by:

  • Profiling the current/future job role of the candidate
  • Matching the candidate’s Work Styles profile against the job role, and
  • Identifying potential strengths and gaps where the candidate could benefit from coaching

"Hiring the wrong people is the fastest way to undermine a sustainable business."
- Kevin J. Donaldson

There are so many factors to consider when trying to hire the right talent. Which of these matter most?

“How can I know if the candidate is a good fit for the role?”

“Can they be coached to grow into the demands of the role?”

“What are the right questions to ask a candidate when interviewing them?”

The Work Styles Job/Role Profiling Assessment addresses these challenges in three steps:

  • It helps to identify and prioritise the factors that contribute to the success of the role
  • It creates a profile of the role, considering the job    description and behaviour that is required of the role
  • It compares the Work Styles profile of the candidate          against the profile of the role



"Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success."
- Henry Ford

Most people have faced this situation in their career: a new manager takes over as leader of a team and everyone (including the manager) don’t quite know how to manage the transition. These are just some of the typical dilemmas that teams and their new manager struggle with:

What is the new manager’s leadership style?’‘What is the best way for me to engage with this team?’‘How do we tell this new manager when we disagree with something? Will they accept feedback?’‘How do I give them feedback? What if they don’t agree with my way of doing things?’ TRANSCEND addresses all these challenges and more.

By taking the TRANSCEND assessment, a leader and their team will start their working relationship on the right footing. They will discover:

  • Their relationship dynamics – how they relate to each other.
  • How their manager prefers to lead versus the type of leadership they need
  • How use the Team Profile to allocate roles and responsibilities within the team
  • How each team member defines trust and how we agree collectively to  behaviour that promotes trust within our team
  • How each team member can work effectively with the new team leader
  • How we can create a team culture that supports our business goals

"The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born-that there is a genetic factor to leadership. That's nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born"
- Warren Bennis

There is no one leadership style that will succeed in every situation. For any leader or aspiring leader, the challenges to solve are these:

  • How do I know my preferred style of leading?
  • In what areas of leadership do I need to develop myself?
  • Under what circumstances should I use different leadership styles?

The Work Styles’ Leadership Aptitude Assessment covers 16 different styles of leadership:

  • Consultative
  • Directive
  • Task-focused
  • Strategic
  • Empathetic
  • Transformational
  • Visionary
  • Paternal/Maternal
  • Coaching/Guiding
  • Collaborative
  • Problem-solving
  • Control & Compliance
  • Technical
  • Delegative
  • Situational, and
  • Innovative


To address the challenges mentioned, the Leadership Aptitude Assessment:

  1. Measures your preference against the 16 leadership styles
  2. Summarises the intensity of your leadership preferences
  3. Recommends situations in which each leadership style could be appropriately applied
