FlexStyle Assessment

The FlexStyle Assessment

We are excited to tell you that Dr. Ellen Ernst Kossek, Basil S. Turner Distinguished Professor of Management and research director of the Susan Bulkeley Butler Center at Purdue University, will be the plenary speaker of the 2019 IUPUI Women’s Conference. Dr. Kossek is an international expert on work-life issues. The title of her talk is Managing Work-Life Boundaries in the Digital Age. During her talk, she will discuss the latest research about different work-life boundary management styles and how to manage them to benefit work-life well-being on and off the job.

Please take the FlexStyle Assessment prior to the conference in order to learn more about your boundary management style. The assessment will take about 5 to 10 minutes of your time and you will get the results right after you complete the assessment in an email or on your screen. (However you prefer.)

Before you start the assessment, you also will be asked to consent whether you wish to participate in an on-going study analyzing boundary management styles. If you agree to participate, you will be invited to complete two more surveys over the next three months. Each survey will take about 10 to 15 minutes.

Participation in any of the surveys is completely voluntary. You can complete the assessment (survey 1 only) to learn your boundary management style and decide later not to complete the follow-up surveys. You can withdraw from the study at any time without any penalty or attend the plenary without completing the assessment.

We hope you enjoy learning about your boundary management style!
