I'm predominantly a Relater (other categories tied with 3 checkmarks each in the easy-to-complete test), which is another reason the book resonated with me. I found it to be a truly enjoyable experience in giving words to human behavior and practical clues for better relationships.
Clear, well-written, fun to read, insightfully valuable.
The author, Monica Wofford, is an expert in the CORE Map Profile tool. Several times, I've had the pleasure of watching her present the practicalities and patterns of the CORE Map content. In this easy-to-read book she brings this system to life in an entertaining and enlightening read.
One caution: When reading this book, you just might find yourself disappearing! In a sense, we're all a difficult person for differing profiles. As a result of this book, I'm better equipped to sort the truly cantankerous from those whose profile and patterns are foreign to my way of thinking and being. Hopefully, I'm a more gracious person as a result of being better equipped to recognize the clashing of profiles versus the true jerks.
Making Difficult People Disappear is one of those books that I'm already recommending to my clients. It is obviously appropriate for those situation were the battle lines are drawn and swords are crossing. The less subtle, but perhaps even more appropriate, situation is where conflict isn't so readily apparent. In those situations, the benefits of a different profile are often missing in the team mix. The organization risks paying a high price for such likeness. In other words, some "difficult people" bring tremendous benefit to the team from their different vantage point.
Read this book and let the message sink in. Remember this book the next time you find yourself facing a "difficult person." Re-read this book then.Read more ›
Want to get along with other better at work and at home and on the way to work, well this book won't fix your problems (since if you are like me, you realize YOU are the difficult one!), but it will give you a chance to consider your life experiences from a slightly different perspective AND that just might fix your problems!
Thanks, Ms. Wofford!
