(PRWEB) September 15, 2012
HRDQ, a leading developer of soft-skills management development training, announced today the release of Personality Style at Work: The Secret to Working with (Almost) Anyone, the new people skills book that was named a Best Career Book of 2012 by The Wall Street Journal’s FINS Finance.
Decades of studies and the well-known personality theories of researchers including William Marston and Carl Jung have proven that personality style is the primary driving force of human behavior and the basis of soft skills such as effective communication, productive teamwork, and successful leadership. The HRDQ Style Series is a comprehensive line of soft-skills training materials for organization development training that includes personality assessments, training exercises, and personality book, Personality Style at Work: The Secret to Working with (Almost) Anyone.
The HRDQ Style Series assessments identify individual personality style, shed light on the inherent personality strengths and weaknesses, and show people how to improve their interpersonal relationships using personality style. Based on the four-quadrant HRDQ Style Model that applies William Marston’s personality theory, each assessment targets specific soft skills such as communication, teambuilding, coaching, leadership, learning, selling, and time management, with a learning experience that’s build around the HRDQ Experiential Learning Model™. According to Martin Delahoussaye, HRDQ Vice President of Publishing, “What makes the HRDQ Style Series so powerful is that it takes the complexity of personality and boils it down into four words: Direct, Spirited, Considerate, and Systematic. The simplicity makes it easy for trainers and organization development professionals to facilitate and memorable for individuals.”
A collaborative effort between HRDQ and McGraw-Hill, Personality Style at Work: The Secret to Working with (Almost) Anyone is the latest addition to the HRDQ Style Series. Named a 2012 Best Career Book by The Wall Street Journal’s FINS Finance, the personality book takes an extensive look into how personality style impacts interpersonal relationships and performance in the workplace, addressing everything from identifying personality style and decoding the behavior of others to improving one’s relationship with their boss. Author Kate Ward commented, “As a seasoned training consultant, I speak from experience when I say I’ve tapped into the HRDQ Style Model more times than I can count. There isn’t a better way to become skilled at communicating with others, leading cross-functional teams, clinching lucrative deals, and building a healthy rapport with others. Personality Style at Work provides strategies for turning personality style into a competitive advantage by altering the way one communicates through language, body gestures, and physical space.”
Filled with interactive exercises, worksheets, tips, and more, Personality Style at Work and the HRDQ Style Series are effective soft-skills learning tools for the entire organization, from frontline employees to C-level executives and everyone in between. The book and the personality assessments are immediately available through HRDQ.
