For a sneak peek into the inner workings of your mind, take our fun interactive mind-analysis quiz. It's a bit of fun, but it's also a way to get you to start thinking about where your strengths might lie. And how you can apply your mind to making a difference in your chosen career.
Now let's get started shall we?
You answer me even though I never ask questions. What am I?
You have an action mind-set, but this might not be what you think it is. What you have is an acute understanding of your environment and what your team are capable of. As a result, you can energise those around you into taking the action necessary to achieve it. But you must also make sure that that direction is maintained so that progress does not stall.
"I find Accenture challenging and rewarding because I can help some of the world’s leading FMCG companies define and execute their strategy in order to win in a rapidly changing environment."Samuel Holmes – Senior Manager
"The pace of work means I need to always have my mind on what's new or causing disruption and the reason why I have stayed at Accenture so long."Barbara Harvey – Managing Director
"I find Accenture challenging due to its size and complexity. It is a huge global company of over 400,000 people over 120 countries but it moves at speed to ensure it is at the cutting edge of technology and to provide its clients with innovative solutions to make their business more successful. There is no time to stop and think for long, decisions must be made quickly and within HR we are constantly evolving to meet the needs of our clients and our people."Candida Mottershead – Managing Director
You are a master of your context. You don’t simply observe different habits and cultures; you actively participate in them. But you don’t need to have travelled the world either. Your mind set easily adapts to any new logic or norm. This allows you to bring unique insights and perspectives to your team that will greatly enhance its performance.
"At Accenture, we face many situations and challenges that require us to adapt to each. Being able to adapt and thrive in each situation and at whatever comes your way, even though it may not be what you are expecting is an absolute key to success. Part of this involves having a positive mindset and the creativity to turn each challenge into an opportunity and helping the team grow."Yen-Sze Soon – Managing Director
"I find Accenture so challenging because often, I am juggling a multitude of different commitments and expectations, this type of environment forces me to prioritise and organise my thinking so I can still perform to the best of my ability."Davina Majeethia – Analyst
"At Accenture, I have worked in consulting projects that involve a large number of very different stakeholders and situations that can be difficult to interpret and cater to, without some degree of flexibility. My ability to adapt, to model my work and working habits on the needs of each stakeholder, and to create different solutions for different requirements has served me well and enabled me to succeed."Ferdi Sigona – Consultant
Your mind-set swerves towards the analytical. Which makes you rather good at breaking down complex ideas into component parts that are easier to digest. Solving problems comes naturally, and you are always relied upon to make sound decisions based on a detailed study of the information available.
"I find Accenture challenging, but also rewarding, because of the huge variety of clients and situations that you find yourself in. There are so many different problems to be solved; you never do the same thing twice! It’s a bit like a huge jigsaw puzzle – sometimes frustrating when you have to work hard to create the best fit solution, but always really satisfying once you see your work within the big picture."Ami Shirley – Analyst
"As far as I’m concerned, being a data-driven organisation is the only way to be. Advanced Analytics (machine learning) and Big Data are already shaping what we do and, as we are focused on and committed to generating great results for our clients, I can only see it becoming increasingly important to our work in future."Ana Madrid – Analytics Senior Manager
"I find Accenture challenging and rewarding because you can see the impact you are making across various client’s business through best use of available technology and setting their strategic direction. Each day is different in Accenture and mostly unpredictable which makes it exciting every day."Sachin Shah – Manager
Yours is the collaborative mind-set. Your strength lies in engagement, and you manage the relationships between people with skill. What makes you special is that you listen more than you talk, and empower others to take charge. You foster collaborations by making it possible for others to lead; and that is what makes you so integral to any team.
"I believe we are a product of the people we surround ourselves with. It has been really rewarding to see the results when you foster collaborations by drawing on the network you have intentionally built over the years and bring the best out of each individual to work together towards a common goal. I love finding the best combinations of the skills we have across our people to bring the best of Accenture to our clients."Sevasti Wong – Managing Director
"I find Accenture challenging as the technology sector is so fast paced and forever changing. This brings excitement and variety to my career development!"Luke Munday – Apprentice
"One of the most challenging things about working at Accenture at times can be the volume of work. Which means you have lots of plates to spin and requires you to not only prioritise but also work together across teams as well as keeping all your key stakeholders updated. Equally, it’s important to keep connected with people within your wider career network – your client, your boss, your group leads, your peers, to support your development."Luke Ounsworth – Analyst
The things that happen to us cannot become experiences until we reflect on and learn from them. And this is where you come into your own. Every reaction, every happening, is a learning experience for you. Thanks to your reflective mind seeking this understanding, you can help yourself and your team grow.
"Work can be unpredictable and this encourages you to think on your feet, to be creative and to be resilient. Thus, I’ve really had to self-assess, and see how best I can use the abilities and strengths. Reflecting on each experience has enabled me to do this. So, despite what the circumstances - whether presenting unexpectedly to external panels, finding myself trying to navigate through political relationships or receiving feedback I wasn’t expecting - I make sure that I take the positives from these experiences and turn them into things I can learn from to improve my response next time. "Chloe Leonard – Consultant
"One of the main challenges I have faced in Accenture is stepping up and having the confidence to share my experiences and what I have learnt from them. Being given the opportunity to try various roles while shadowing different mentors, has encouraged me to share my teachings and growth with apprentices and graduates joining Accenture. It’s often that one or two words are relatable and it brings up an individual’s confidence. As I find myself doing contrasting roles, it’s important to be able to adapt to a new team, atmosphere and workload which is a constant challenge in itself at Accenture but can be overcome through the support of others."Shajida Aktar – Apprentice
