Summary

Professional success, more often than not, means becoming a manager. Yet nobody prepared you for having to deal with messy tidbits like emotions, conflicts, and personalities - all while achieving ever-greater goals and meeting ever-looming deadlines. Not exactly what you had in mind, is it?
Don’t panic. Here are the tools to help you succeed and even thrive as a manager. 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.

Good start

I think one has to have an appreciation for Myers Briggs before listening. I enjoyed it and will re listen which is unusual for me. I might just get a paper copy of the book.

The reader of this book....

I've read this book, it's great! I hoped to hear something in tone at least as pleasurable as this book was in my head but instead had my expectations plummet with the droning read of this audiobook. I've felt more energy from a 'AAA' battery.
