Working Styles Assessment (WSA)

The WSA is a career exploration tool, which assesses personality traits that are related to effective job performance. It is a straightforward and effective tool designed to help counsellors, hiring managers and job applicants understand the strengths and weaknesses that may affect an individual’s compatibility with a job or work environment. The WSA includes a User’s Workbook for the examinee to explore career options and learn about their own working style. The Summary Score Sheet provides professionals with information about a candidate’s preferred working styles and strengths.

The WSA measures 18 constructs, which are grouped into five general categories:

  • Drive
  • Interpersonal Skills
  • Adjustment
  • Responsibility
  • Problem Solving


  • Can help individuals better understand their personal work preferences and how they approach situations in the workplace.
  • Can aid hiring managers in identifying preferred working styles and strengths.
  • Can guide developmental conversations between a manager and an employee.
