My contact with Laura and Tom at Distributed Worker Success Inc has been most beneficial to our programs in Halifax. We were provided with an easy to implement online survey and a very detailed Personality Profile. The Customized Feedback, Goal Setting and Action Planning in the Profile provide a great opportunity for managers and employees to discuss any strategies to ensure successful outcomes and avoid inefficiencies. Included in the feedback are specific development suggestions which I found particularly helpful as they give clear and detailed recommendations on how to avoid some of the hurdles with implementing WORKshift. I look forward to working further with Laura and her team as they facilitate a virtual session on our team’s personality results for our upcoming WORKshift pilot project. Innovative, Effective, and a Great Resource.

Laura and Tom’s research and assessment tool provides great insight about distributed teams. There is tremendous benefit through the team debrief and dialogue. It reinforces that you need to make adjustments both as individuals and team members to accommodate others, and it points out that you have differences… that’s a good thing.

Discussing the results of the assessment as a team could be very beneficial to your workplace whether you have a lot of flexible workers or just a few.

I liked that it drilled down into the psychometrics of the tool. I also liked the personal experience, the opportunity to use the framework to talk about our work styles. It would help at the outset of the program, throughout the change management stream, and to top it off with a charter would be hugely important and valuable.
The tool gives a focal point to facilitate a conversation, a common language, it helps you understand how to manage yourself to carve out whatever space you need.

I scored high overall, which I think is accurate and probably influenced by the fact that I have worked mobily or on a distributed team for a long time. And yes I struggle with procrastination!
I think it has widened my perspective on how personality has an impact on ability to work in this environment.
We had good discussion and gained additional insight into our team and our program.

I really like the way that the information is laid out. Very user friendly and non-threatening. Thanks for allowing me this opportunity. It was fun!

The Distributed Worker Personality Profiler gave me a greater understanding of my individual work style and how I can achieve optimal productivity throughout my work day. It created dialogue between my manager and I on the topic of working away from the office.

Would have been helpful prior to moving into Workplace 2.0. For an individual just starting, there is great value here. On the management or strategic level, knowing any associates to be nervous about, if there are any patterns in the team…like are most people non-starters, or is there a person who needs more time spent with them.

My report was accurate in that it predicted me having trouble working from home. I am new to ATB and have not been in a remote working environment before and have been finding it challenging.
