We spend at least one-third of our lives working. But what makes work meaningful and rewarding? Career expert Donna Dunning writes that work is satisfying if it interests you and allows you to do the things you enjoy. But she also notes that work that is interesting and enjoyable for one person may be totally unsuitable for another. She states that is because of people's differing personalities.
Whether you are just starting out, looking for a change, exploring business ideas, or thinking about retirement activities, WHAT'S YOUR TYPE OF CAREER? will show readers how to find work in that perfect career.
Dunning's advice is based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (r) assessment. The first portion of the book uses powerful, but easy-to-use worksheets to guide the reader in determining their personality type. The second and third parts are in-depth, highly-relevant, jargon-free descriptions and explanations of the eight "Ways of Working." They explore the work preferences, strengths, areas for development, learning, teamwork, and leadership styles of each type. They provide practical suggestions for types of work that attract each personality type and guide the reader to match their personality type with the appropriate career path. The eight "Ways of Working" are: Extraverted "Ways of Working" 1. Responders: Act and adapt 2. Explorers: Innovate and initiate 3. Expeditors: Direct and decide 4.
