To be happy and successful in a career, you need to be doing work that fits your personality. Psychologist, teacher, and HR professional Donna Dunning provides concrete links between personality and career to help anyone manage transition, enrich a career path, or move into opportunities that best suit his or her unique talents. On the basis of data from thousands of people working in hundreds of different jobs, Dunning uses the well established personality type theory of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) to identify eight natural work styles: the Responder, Explorer, Expeditor, Contributor, Assimilator, Visionary, Analyser, and Enhancer. She explores how people use each to communicate, organise, approach tasks, solve problems, make decisions, lead, and be led. With a rich variety of exercises, checklists, tips, and strategies, Dunning takes readers through an easy five-step career planning process that highlights their strengths and skills to help them make better career choices. Fully updated with new career options, this second edition will help you find the career that's right for you on all levels.
