From the Inside Flap
In the world of business and life, there are only four kinds of people in any organization: 1) Warriors, who confront change, see possibilities, innovate and manage to win! 2) Workers, who deal with the ups, downs and challenges of everyday corporate life dependably, and who can reliably implement the change and direction established by the Warriors. 3) Whiners, who get through life by complaining about everything they do, who profess negativism and dissatisfaction wherever they go, and blaming others for their own shortcomings. 4) Weasels, who lurk everywhere and threaten your career and life-goals through their own deception and insecurity and who spread these feelings quickly throughout the organization.
Warriors, Workers, Whiners & Weasels illuminates these four personality types and shows you how to recognize the characteristics of each and use them to your advantage to empower the Warriors and Workers to boost your organization to success.

A good read if you want to analyze what may be holding you back from what you want at work!
O'Leary's book is fun, relevant and simple to understand which is not common in most business titles. The title, Warriors Workers Whiners and Weasels says it all; these are the 4 primary personality types branded by Tim O'Leary whose entrepreneurial life is packed full of success and even a few failures which support his theories and arguments. O'Leary doesn't just narrowly talk about business; instead, he writes about the people of business and how to decipher the good from the bad, especially when the good aren't really good. Because businesses are typically run by "warriors" this does not exactly mean the leader is a true warrior. O'Leary explains that many weasels actually posses warrior tendencies and are identified by their alternative motives packed full of selfishness, destruction and deception.
Knowing and living by the information covered in this book will enable readers to live positive and productive lives, while simultaneously limiting any negative impact on the social environment.
If in fact you do happen to be a warrior or worker, the lessons covered in this book enable you to identify and expand on your positive attributes while simultaneously eliminating the negative forces limiting your capabilities and threatening your potential.
In addition, O'Leary's words will help you to recognize and capitalize on the resources around you and identify the warning signs of those who can infest your career with dysfunction and failure.
No matter what field you work in you can find value in this book. I have read so many business books during my career and right now this sits on the top of my recommendation list.
My favorite section is the chapter on "Weasel Radar" where O'Leary gives instructions on how to complete the difficult task of spotting a weasel. Like many of the topics discussed in the book; weasel spotting is extremely important. A lot of times it is dangerous to just get rid of a weasel because he/she might possess too much information. So, having good weasel radar allows you to identify a true weasel and get rid of it before it's too late.
I wish I had this book before giving up on my business. I might just have to give it one more go before I officially retire.
O'Leary breaks down business personalities into 4 types and provides insight on how individuals can identify which category they fall under. The concepts he discusses are really simple to follow and just as easy to apply.
I am psyched to have received a pre-released copy of the book and am excited to purchase more copies to give as Fathers Day gifts.
Great Present for: Birthday, Fathers day, Graduation, Confirmation, etc.
