With the rise of big data, analytical skills are becoming increasingly important. Yet companies are struggling to find people who have the right set of skills and who are able to problem-solve. Each way of thinking embodies a certain philosophy of the world and relies on certain mental models. It’s important to identify which thinker you are most closely aligned with currently, as well as considering which ones you may embrace in the future.
To be successful in business, you must have an extensive set of skills. From planning and delegation to communication and execution. Since the skill set is so wide, it’s tempting to focus your energy on building skills in the areas in which you’re a little weak. But, while it’s important to understand and work on your shortcomings, the biggest career growth can actually come from further developing skills or behaviors in which you already excel.
Take this 5-question quiz to discover what kind of thinker you are and learn about the strengths and weaknesses of your process.
