Drawing on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, Zack introduces two primary management styles-thinkers and feelers-and guides you in developing a management style that fits who you really are. Zack takes you through a host of potentially difficult situations, showing how this new way of understanding yourself and others makes managing less of a stumble in the dark and more of a walk in the park. With enlightening examples, helpful exercises, and lifesaving tips, this audiobook the new go-to guide for all those managers looking to love their jobs again.
