Dorian is bossy and doesn't pull any punches. Indy just wants to have fun. Sarah hopes everyone will get along. Crystal needs everything to be perfect. Sound like anyone you know? They're not your coworkers, though they may remind you of them. They're not your family members, but they may act like them at times. In fact, they're a community of birds living in an exotic forest, racing against time to save their beloved Home from impending disaster. What can they teach us about human nature? As it turns out, a whole lot! Follow the eagle, parrots, doves, and owls as they discover the four behavioral styles that explain why we all think, act, and say the things we do. In this entertaining fable, you'll gain answers to profound questions, such as: Why did my coworker say that? What was my husband thinking? Why do I click with some and clank with others? Taking Flight! helps you identify your own style and gives you simple techniques to recognize the styles of others. Whether you're an executive, parent, teacher, team member, or friend, Taking Flight! reveals how applying behavioral style wisdom can dramatically improve your effectiveness at work your personal relationships...the very quality of your life!

From the Back Cover:

Taking Flight! is packed with life-changing insights about you and everyone you know. You’ll never look at people quite the same way again.”
--Marshall Goldsmith, Author of What Got You Here Won’t Get You There

Taking Flight! reveals profound hidden patterns of human behavioral style, offers a blueprint for deeper self-awareness, helps you maximize your own personal strengths, and shows how to connect with and influence others more powerfully than ever before.

Team performance and personality style experts Merrick Rosenberg and Daniel Silvert introduce the proven DISC model of human behavior and show how it can make you more effective as a leader, team member, teacher, salesperson, and in all your personal relationships.

When you understand what makes individuals tick, you can interact with them far more effectively.
