  • We will ask you to complete a questionnaire describing your organisation.
  • You will also be asked to describe your job; your role; responsibilities; and important tasks and relationships.
  • We will also ask you to complete one or more self-report questionnaires. These include personality, motivation and thinking styles questionnaires
