Overview

There are hundreds of ways to make a difference: in process, in outcomes, with tasks or with people. And from the latest business bestsellers to over 28 million hits on Google, people in every walk of life are seeking answers. Building on the powerful fundamentals of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® assessment and drawing on survey data from more than 500 people at every level of the organization, Making a Difference by Being Yourself offers a simplified framework that identifies four key personality types—stabilizers, harmonizers, catalysts, and visionaries—and shows how to go beyond a simple understanding of who we are to actually put into practice—purposefully and consciously—the strengths of our own personalities and styles in ways that can make a meaningful difference.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Licensed psychologist Huszczo (Tools for Team Excellence) builds on the fundamentals of the Myers-Briggs Inventory to help readers identify their personality type to use their strengths to benefit others. Exercises allow for assessing one's preference for introversion/extroversion, sensing/intuition, thinking/feeling, and judging/perceiving. Huszczo then devotes single chapters to the four personality types-stabilizers, harmonizers, catalysts, and visionaries-in which he discusses each type's ability to help others, be dependable, communicate, and motivate others. While the author advocates self-understanding, his chief objective is to encourage readers to look outward to find inner satisfaction. Recommended for all libraries.
