Do you delight in planning and taking action?
Do you revel in facts and data?
Do you crave new ideas and experiences?
Do you feel more complete when you are around others?
In other words, are you a spade, diamond, club, or heart?
Find out by taking one of the quickest, easiest, and most entertaining personality tests to ever hit the business market. Over 25,000 people in dozens of Fortune 500 companies have played Personality Poker to spur innovation and optimize growth.
Use the included cards and Steve Shapiro's insightful techniques to identify your personality "strong suit," revealing where you really belong in an organization and how to maximize your contribution. You will also discover:
--Why the person you like the least is the one you need the most
--How your greatest strength can limit your success
--Why homogenous teams are more efficient, but end up limiting innovation
An entertaining, if slightly wacky, personality-type game designed to improve performance in the workplace by Fortune 500 company adviser Shapiro, the game helps players identify and understand their "innovation styles": how they uniquely contribute to the success of a team and its chief goals. Each suit is assigned to a particular personality type, and the cards are shuffled and exchanged as the players learn about each other's strengths and weaknesses. The objective of the game, unfolding through four phases (define the challenge, generate solutions, plan and execute, engage hearts and minds) helps leaders put together a team withe each person's strengths used to their full advantage, in order to spur the team to optimized performance and more efficient work. A successful game ends with a team "playing with a full deck"--with all suits represented and allocated in the right way. Shapiro presents an extremely precise, process-driven method of personality analysis, simplified into game form; a clever idea, but more gimmick than guide.
