Sometimes when we get annoyed with other people’s behaviour either at work or in our families we think that it is the other person ‘being difficult’, ‘being disorganized’ or we think, ‘why can’t they be like me or do things like I do?’. This is often down to different personality types rather than them being a ‘difficult person’.

With an understanding of our own and other people’s personality types we can find ways of managing those differences and even capitalizing on the strengths of the different personality types.

The more managers understand about personality, and the different personality types on their teams, the easier it becomes to engage and inspire team members.
