This text asserts that it is possible to overcome personality conflicts by understanding other people's differences instead of merely reacting to them emotionally. It presents a behavioural science model for understanding four different "people styles", and explains how readers can: identify their own style and how they appear to others; relate effectively - no matter how others react to them; create common ground with different people while retaining their own individuality; and evaluate other people's "people styles" and discover how to "flex" their style to match.

Book Description:

"With so much diversity in the workplace, it's no wonder people problems abound. Yet it is possible to overcome personality conflicts by understanding other people's differences instead of merely reacting to them emotionally.

A sequel to Social Style, Management Style, this book presents a comprehensive behavioral science model for understanding four different ""people styles."" The authors explain how readers can:

* identify their own styles and how they appear to others

* relate effectively -- no matter how others react to them

* create common ground with different people while retaining their own individuality

* evaluate the ""people styles"" of others and discover how to ""flex"" their styles to match

Readers will learn the characteristic strengths and weaknesses of each style -- driver, analytical, amiable, and expressive -- and how these characteristics can create stress in the other behavior types. They'll discover how to minimize these stresses by getting ""in synch"" with the style-based behavior patterns of others."

From the Back Cover:
