EVALUATE
Think

Simon Depoutot can invest himself when it comes to conducting evaluations, even though it is not one of his priorities.

PROMOTE
Interact

Simon Depoutot seeks to influence decision-making and he enjoys sharing his points of view in this context. However, he seeks to promote his ideas within the team, rather than outside it. Therefore activities related to project promotion do not really suit him.

The ideal culture for him

The ideal work environment for Simon Depoutot is one that gives everyone freedom to attain objectives as they like. He believes basic guidelines should suffice, and each person should be responsible for their behavior and contribution to the organization. He seeks a culture that prioritizes results, without undermining collaboration and kinship across teams. He needs to be stimulated by his work, and likes his work to evolve often: a highly stable work environment might quickly bore him.

How he learns new skills and concepts

When it comes to learning new skills, Simon Depoutot will progress faster through a practical approach. He finds it hard to assimilate information without seeing it applied practically first. He will do best if he is taught how to do something new or complex before he tackles it by himself.

Simon Depoutot's spontaneous nature leads him to learn by testing out concepts and techniques himself. He finds that the best way to acquire new knowledge is to first try, develop his understanding through failure, and then try again. He can sometimes lack patience. To assimilate new ideas or new knowledge, he first needs to experiment by herself.
