An interesting new book that is an engaging and insightful read with a fun interactive twist is "Personality Poker" written by Stephen Shapiro. It is unique, not only because it raises insightful and counter intuitive perspectives, it also comes with a deck of innovation personality cards that makes determining ones personality style (or that of an entire team) both interactive, fun and easy. I am starting to use refer to them in my workshops.
Some of my favorite insights from the book are:
- Why the person you like the least is the one you need the most
- How your greatest strength can limit your success
- Why homogeneous teams are more efficient, yet end up limiting innovation
…and it is packed with useful information whether you are a fortune 500 business or a solopreneur.
I recommend it very much and would encourage you to go to Amazon or your favorite local book store and pick up a copy.
