How Do I Apply My ISAT Results To My Career?
Understanding your interaction style can help you better interact with your co-workers. Understanding how you interact with fellow co-workers is especially important if you just started a new job and are the "office newbie."
Although you might think you have a firm grasp on how you communicate with others, you might not realize how you could be misinterpreted by co-workers, which could lead to some awkward situations and unwanted workplace conflict.
Having a better understanding of interaction style is also helpful for networking and job interviews.
Networking can be tough, so having a handle on how you interact will help you adapt your networking strategy, while potential employers usually ask job seekers to describe themselves during job interviews.
Don't Let Your Interaction Style Hold You Back At Work
There are so many reasons to understand your interaction style. In fact, if you don't take the time to learn the pros and cons of your interaction style, you could seriously hurt your career.
If you feel out of place at work or constantly get passed over for promotions, your interaction style could be to blame.
