The eCF Personal Style Inventory comes in two versions, one for Managers (“eCF-M”) and one for Individual Contributors (“eCF-IC”). Both versions of the eCF Personal Style Inventory yield results based on personal trait dimensions with two contrasting ends, like “Flexible vs. Structured” Personal Working Style, or “Independent vs. Collaborative” Interpersonal Style. Both the eCF-M and the eCF-IC produce individualized feedback reports that are easy to use, easy to understand, and provide robust, targeted career development feedback.

Embedded in both the eCF Manager and eCF Individual Contributor is the  Job/Career/Life Satisfaction Assessment.  This assessment will help you to gain an understanding of how you compare to others with regard to three areas: your job, your career, and your life. eCF developed the Satisfaction Assessment by compiling thousands of responses to give you a good understanding of where you stand on the three measures of satisfaction in the larger population. Your customized report will provide a score in each area, and give you narrative explanation of what this means for you at this stage in your life.

Human Resource professionals will immediately see the value of the eCF Personal Style Feedback Reports (22-25 pages) as a tool for employee career development programs, high potential retention workshops, succession planning seminars, online employee / family self-service benefit programs, mentoring, coaching, workforce planning and outplacement / transition services. Individualized feedback reports can be readily accessed 24/7 in a variety of languages whenever employees / managers need guidance to clarify ideal work preferences, search for insights to enhance work performance, explore career options and identify personal areas of strengths and best-fit so that individual educational and career plans may be developed.

The 103-item eCF-M has 4 categories of traits, with a total of 14 trait dimensions:

The eCF-IC uses the same categories, but the Management Style trait dimensions are modified in three ways. First, instead of “Operational Leadership vs. Visionary Leadership”, the eCF-IC has “Operational vs. Visionary” Personal Working Style. Second, the eCF-IC has “Empathetic vs. Tough-Minded” Personal Working Style instead of “Role Relations Oriented vs. Human Relations Oriented” Management Style. Finally, the eCF-IC does not include “Participative vs. Directive” Management Style, thus the eCF-IC reports on 13 trait dimensions (one fewer than the eCF-M).

Geared to helping individuals understand their enduring personal operating strengths and how to apply those strengths to the world of work, the eCF Personal Style Feedback Report for Managers provides a wealth of personalized information including:

Orderly, organized, and predictable, you strive to work according to plan and obey the rules, and you expect others to do the same. Comfortable with established procedures and policy, you appreciate reliability and conscientiousness in those around you.
