The key to both enjoying and succeeding at work lies in knowing your core strengths—and making the most of them. Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Grounded, realistic, and accountable? Competitive and theoretical? Spontaneous and action-oriented? Creative and empathetic?
Based on the easy-to-understand “Color Q” model of the four major personality groups — used by more than 50,000 professionals worldwide—Personality Power gives you a clear blue-print for using your natural abilities more effectively ...and reenergizing your professional life. Just take a simple, 10-minute self-assessment to determine your personality type and discover how best to:
• Communicate with employees, bosses, and others with different styles
• Identify your ideal (and least suitable) work environments
• Avoid the blind spots associated with your type
• Assemble a career plan with concrete steps for achieving your goals
Featuring in-depth chapters for each personality type, helpful charts, exercises, and inspiring success stories—including profiles of well-known figures such as Diane Sawyer, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Hillary Clinton, and others—the book reveals how to use your natural talents to approach innovation, deal with conflict, negotiate compensation, and self-coach your way to greater success.
Good news: You don’t need a new job to be happy at work. Now, packed with life-altering insights, Personality Power will enable you to achieve the recognition and fulfillment you deserve ...just by being yourself.
“I have successfully used Color Q with hundreds of associates to increase their awareness of personality and leadership style, which has resulted in higher-performing teams. It is an incredibly fun, memorable, and effective resource!
— Rehana Farrell, Chief Administrative Officer, Guggenheim Investments
