'By nature, by instinct, by personality, people react differently and use different techniques and ways of dealing with a situation. Success in the future will come to those who see people as unique individuals, with unique talents. Rather than just selecting people with the right skills, winning organizations will be those that also focus on selecting people with the skills who are also suited by temperament to complete the task successfully. How do you discover who you really are? Who your team members really are? What role you're best adapted to play? Many systems have been devised based on the great psychologist, Carl Jung's teachings. But the best may well be a system called Kingdomality, created by Richard and Susan Silvano of Career Management International. Kingdomality links an understanding of personality - the natural/instinctive way we act and react - with role models that clearly define the whole sweep of personality types. By matching personality types to roles played by citizens in a medieval kingdom and developing a simple test - blind to issues such as gender, race, education, economic circumstance - the Silvanos have created a way of discovering who you are. By knowing your own role, and the essence of the roles of others around you, you'll understand why certain people see problems and opportunities differently. To know who you really are brings power and mastery to your life.' From the foreword by Ken Blanchard, bestselling co-author of The One Minute Manager

A superb cast brings to life the authors' lesson on how to manage the varied talents and personalities of people in organizations. They broadly classify people as Helpers, Challengers, Explorers, and Maintainers. Each group has three roles or subtypes, which the authors explain with short vignettes. The dramatizations, well done as they may be, will be distracting and overbearing for Type A learners. The essential message is that organizations need a balance to function smoothly. Most of the prescriptions for working with types and subtypes make sense, while a few stand out more for their excessive detail.
