Understanding Personality Types At Work
per extra team member
Do you recognize these people?
The Know-It-Alls, having an opinion on any issue. The Passives, who never offer ideas. The Dictators, coming across as bullies. The No People, quick to point out why something won’t work. The Complainers, who would rather complain than try finding solutions.
They’re the people you work with …
What does personality have to do with it? Everything!
Knowing and accepting the differences between the people you work with – and making the most of those differences – isn’t just good for the individuals concerned, it’s good for business too!
