The most difficult aspect of work has nothing to do with profitability or deadlines or competition. It has to do with the immense and beautiful challenges of dealing, on an ongoing basis, with that often amazing but always complicated entity known as the colleague.

It has to do with the immense and beautiful challenges of dealing, on an ongoing basis, with that often amazing but always complicated entity known as the colleague. Our colleagues can be the sources of our greatest joys and triumphs: they compensate for our weaknesses, enlarge our strengths and aggregate our energies. However, working successfully around others is neither intuitive nor simple: it requires us to communicate effectively, to understand our own minds and blind spots, to master our emotions and to see the world from other people’s perspectives. The School of Life has been working with organisations since its foundation, releasing the latent talents of employees and equipping them with the emotional intelligence required to succeed. This book compresses our learning into a series of lessons on workplace psychology. The result is an essential guide to more profitable, harmonious and happier organisations.

    This book, although very briefly, gives very interesting insights to different personality types to help see beyond impressions and more in the other person's psyche. Unless done in a proper office environment, the games and exercises it proposes are just for reference. Overall I have enjoyed it even as a personal reading and I would re-read it and recommend it.

    Now when a colleague stops you in your tracks, you'll know why... Once read through, this is a great book to dip in and out of the chapters, as needed. This is number 3 of the set and I recommend you read them all. This book particularly breaks down the colleague you meet in the office, and what is behind their thinking, or lack of thinking.

    Less a guide "to better collaborate" and more about different personality types and how to better understand their perspectives by understanding the likely root causes of their behaviour. Nothing groundbreaking but like all School of Life books, comforting in its wont of inclusiveness.
