Understanding Your Personal Productivity M.O.

Learning more about the different work styles can help you discover your approach and help you improve as a teammate and collaborator. Identifying your work style can also help prevent future conflicts within the organization. 

And now, let us see what factors affect these styles:

  • Work preference: Different people have different work preferences. Some people are better thinkers and performers alone, while some prefer the company of team members in brainstorming.

  • Spontaneity level: There are unexpected situations in the office that you need to attend to, and your level of spontaneity can affect your productivity.

  • Accustomed to routine: We often like to stay on track with the routine we develop, and sometimes adapting to changes can cause us to lose focus on productivity.

  • Personality type: No matter what your personality is, your productivity is at stake. Different situations in the workplace may cause your personality to intervene. 

  • Your perspective: You must balance seeing things in the big picture or small details in a workplace.

The productivity style that works for you is a combination of many factors, both personal and professional.

Here are just some things that affect your style of productivity:

  • A preference for working solo or collaboratively

  • Level of spontaneity

  • Need for routine/resistance to change

  • Personality type (e.g. introverted or extroverted)

  • Whether you look at small details or the big picture

The Prioritizer

The Prioritizer is a person who is very organized and has an amazing ability to use logical, analytical, critical, and fact-based thinking. They can easily keep their focus on the work, separating the primary and most important tasks from the rest. Their main focus is on the execution, not spending too much time thinking and worrying about how the task is being completed. Prioritizers can sometimes be controlling and competitive, and they hate chatting around. Also, they have a tendency to respond to colleague messages as short as possible – sometimes even with a single word. Time is very important to them, so they won’t spend it on unnecessary things – rather they’ll be spending it all on completing the task (what a champ!).


  • Ability to prioritize tasks;

  • Strong analytical skills;

  • Ability to laser-focus on work;

  • Great decision-making skills. 



  • Lack of communication with teammates;

  • Seeing everything as a competition;

  • Focus is mainly on quantity, not quality;

  • Desire to control everything;

  • Being so strict about their timetable, they lose flexibility.
