Introduces the concept of personality style and how it affects many aspects of organisational life, including communication, team-building, and leadership

Personality style. It's the primary driving force behind human behaviour. Knowing its ins and outs will shed light on just about everything people do, from leadership to communicating with others to being a team player.

Understanding how personality style works is very simple. In fact, it all boils down to assertiveness and expressiveness, two fundamental behaviours that combine in varying degrees to formulate four basic personality styles: Direct, Spirited, Considerate, and Systematic.

This handy reference guide introduces the four personality styles, illustrates how they apply to a wide range of organisational situations, shows readers how to spot someone else's personality style, and offers tips for 'flexing' personality style in any situation.
