Karen's Working Style

Psychometric Assessment (PPA)

Karen exudes charm and confidence. She likes freedom to act and dislikes close supervision. Detail is a nuisance to this promoter of ideas because her emphasis is on flair. She is a starter rather than a finisher who likes a variety of people-oriented tasks.
