As co-workers, we are thrown together in the workplace. We don’t have years to build knowledge and intimacy with each other, and our lack of understanding at work can cause everything from hurt feelings to lost revenue.

What we need to know about ourselves, our team members, and our managers is often driven by a very different set of priorities than the priorities in our personal lives, yet this knowledge is critical to an effective, productive workplace and our own professional success and wellbeing.

In this book we introduce you to what personality is and what we have learned from the research and the numerous systems for assessing personality that have been published and used in organizations during the past decades. These experiences have provided insight into what works and what doesn’t, and have offered the contours for wide improvements.
