The Way We Work by Cynthia Ulrich Tobias
The Way We Work is a wonderful followup to Ms. Tobias's previous book, The Way They Learn. As an entrepreneur and educator, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing these learning styles translated into workplace applications. Not only does the book encourage evaluation of our own learning styles, but teaches us how to get along with those having different learning and communication styles from our own.
The author wisely discourages the use of labeling and cookie-cutter analysis, which is a refreshing approach. This is one I will quickly place on my recommended reading list for my students and colleagues alike. Well done!

Format: Paperback
If you have ever wondered how two supervisors or colleagues can react to the same situation totally differently, then you need to read The Way We Work by Cynthia Tobias (1999). This book outlines four dominating personality working styles, the differences between them, your own working style test, and how you can respond effectively and appropriately to situations with different dominating styles.
The working styles are broken down by two classifications: the way we perceive (concrete, abstract), and the way we order (random, sequential). The four styles are: concrete sequential, abstract sequential, concrete random and abstract random. The book lays out simple quizzes for the reader to identify his/her working style. The chapters then outline personality traits of the style and go into detail of the characteristics of an employee and boss of that style. For example, the abstract random boss may keep his/her desk cluttered and have a half-empty coffee cup sitting around with piles of papers and files all over the desk. They also tend to avoid conflict with others. The abstract random employee cares about others and has a difficult time working with those who are not happy.
Using the information in the book, one can have a deeper understanding of his/her working relationships (and personal relationships). Teachers could apply this information to students, particularly secondary students. Educators are continually collaborating in their field of work, and perhaps a better understanding of working styles would expedite and facilitate a positive and productive work environment.
The layout of The Way We Work (Tobias, 1999) is easy to read with visual charts to identify, and it provides quick-reference lists for the reader.
