Example Scenario

Here is an example Situational Strengths Test scenario

You arrive back in the office just before lunchtime on Thursday, having attended a client meeting which you need to follow up and which will require most of your afternoon. Your manager, Charlotte, is extremely busy. This is not unusual, but you hear that she has just been given another critical project to manage, which reflects just how well-regarded she is in the company.

How do you feel in this situation, and what would you do?

Please RANK ORDER the options below, with 1 being what you are most likely to feel and do and 5 being what you are least likely to feel and do:

  1. 1: You are pleased by the opportunity to get involved and help Charlotte. Straight away you ask her how you can help, balancing this with the time you need for your own work.
  2. 2: You feel concerned by how much is expected of people in the time available. You want to ensure you deliver a good job yourself, so you keep focused on your own work.
  3. 3: You are quietly relieved that you’re not Charlotte. You have enough to do already, so you focus on ensuring that you get your own work done on time.
  4. 4: You are excited to be involved in a critical project. You immediately ask Charlotte how you can help her, reassuring her that you will see things through to completion.
  5. 5: You feel pleased to be part of a busy team. As soon as you have completed your own work, you ask Charlotte what you can take off her to share the load.
