When handling her tasks, she would put extra effort and work very hard to ensure that everything is running well and finished on time. In assuming the role of leader, she is less likely to use formal authority or line of command to instruct her staff. Instead, she gives freedom and empowers her staff. Although she has no strong tendency to control others, she has high need to be forceful. This means that she demands her staff to demonstrate best efforts in accomplishing tasks. She also relies on working procedures and job description and periodically checks the work and action of her subordinates.

Attentive to details, she will be exact and methodical who would focus on accuracy. Her work style, therefore, makes her appropriate to handle facts and figures, typical in an accounting set-up.

Her firm commitment to the rules has helped her to build a clean business in her department.
