Mr. Williams uses 12 mini-biographies (4 presidents, 4 airline CEO's, and 4 women) to give very clear and interesting examples of the Rationalist, Politicist, Humanist and Culturalist.
The model along with the biographies are presented in a consistent, logical format that is easy follow and understand.
The central point of the book and the model is awareness. Mr. Williams suggests that the key to success on many levels is self-awareness. What are our strengths and weaknesses? Who dominates, our internal Adam or Eve? Once we begin to answer these questions we can try to understand those around us to see how we might complement or conflict with each other.
I highly recommend "When Opposites Dance". Not only to those trying to succeed in business, but to everyone who is trying to succeed in all their relationships (business and personal).
It is a fabulous read for anyone who takes seriously their journey with self awareness and leadership. The personalites anaylzed are well-known and interesting, the chapters are concise and well-organized and the take-home value is immediate and longlasting.
I would recommend it for anyone who desires a practical mechanism for personal growth and leadership maturation. I intend to use it with all the staff members of the church where I am a pastor. Matter of fact, it would be a great resource for leadership teams to use in team-building opportunities.
