Great minds don’t always think alike, a new OfficeTeam study suggests. Work styles vary based on personality traits, communication preferences and organizational methods.
While 70% of administrative professionals surveyed said it could be challenging to team up with colleagues who don’t have styles similar to their own, they also recognized benefits to collaborating with those who approach things differently.
Other survey findings:
- 81% of admins prefer to collaborate with colleagues who have similar work styles.
- 65% said they adapt to their manager’s work style to a great extent.
- 58% indicated their supervisor only adjusts “somewhat” to their preferences.
- 14% said their manager doesn’t adjust to their style at all.
