His way of thinking

Preferred tasks Simple

Capacity to perform habitual and well-ingrained tasks.

Decision-making Quick

He moves quickly from one task to the next, and does not linger on obstacles.

Learning style Implement

Builds his knowledge on the information and advice that he receives from others.

Problems he can deal with

To learn new concepts, Dennis Po needs concrete evidence. He develops skills gradually from accumulated field experience. Aspects that are theoretical or too abstract are often foreign to him, and do not help him progress. Indeed, he has difficulties transferring them within the structure of work. He acquires new knowledge through practice and repetition.

Careful in his approach, Dennis Po prefers to defer to proven strategies. He tends to observe and adapt knowledge that has been proven and with which he has full confidence. In this sense, it is easier for him to learn from information provided.
