Overview

Nothing gets in the way of getting a job done, much less done well, quite as much as personality differences among those doing the work. For nearly a decade, Work It Out has been at the forefront of conflict resolution in the workplace. In this revised edition, type experts Sandra Krebs Hirsh and Jane A. G. Kise offer new insights on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) tool and show business leaders, managers, and consultants how to transform problem relationships into positive, productive partnerships.

This dynamic toolkit includes dozens of exercises, case studies from small start-ups to large manufacturing firms, a detailed teambuilding process, and step-by-step guidance for creating coaching plans and tailoring strategies to meet specific client preferences. New in this edition are case studies focused on business applications and more hands-on exercises to implement teambuilding techniques.

Sandra Krebs Hirsh is an international consultant and noted author on personality type who has worked with such clients as Honeywell and 3M on issues of leadership, career, and organization development. Her best-selling books include LifeKeys (with Kise) and Introduction to Type® in Organizations, which has sold over one million copies.

Jane A. G. Kise, Ed.D., is a management consultant specializing in teambuilding and strategic planning and coauthor of Introduction to Type® and Coaching and SoulTypes (with Hirsh).
