Summary

Summary

The Enneagram - a system based on nine personality types - is a uniquely powerful approach to understanding why people behave the way they do. The 9 Ways of Working teaches how to recognize the personality types of everyone you work with - colleagues, clients, consultants, and the boss - and use that information to understand how those people manage, make decisions, resolve or create conflicts, and more.


Author Notes

Michael J. Goldberg consults with the Enneagram all over the world to organizations large and small, including Motorola, the Central Intelligence Agency, VLSI Technology, and Strategic Decisions Group. He has taught at graduate schools of management and law. He lives in Santa Barbara, California.
