The ideal culture for them

Chelsea Backshall is well suited for competitive cultures, where expectations are clear, and results are valued above all. She will thrive in structured and disciplined work environments, where everyone respects established rules. She considers that type of stability important because it allows teams to focus on attaining objectives, without distractions.

How they learn new skills and concepts

To learn new concepts, Chelsea Backshall needs concrete evidence. She develops skills gradually, by accumulating practical experience. Theoretical and abstract concepts are often foreign to her, and contribute little to her progress because she will have a hard time applying them in the context of her job. She masters new skills through practice and repetition.

Chelsea Backshall's spontaneous nature leads her to learn by testing out concepts and techniques herself. She finds that the best way to acquire new knowledge is to first try, develop her understanding through failure, and then try again. She can sometimes lack patience. To assimilate new ideas or new knowledge, she first needs to experiment by herself.
