How to Understand and Motivate Different Personality Types

July 26, 2018 | By Mike Ryan

Today’s business leaders are well aware that the workplace is populated by multi-generations working side by side. However, many companies have not paid enough attention to the differences of “personality” types. There can be as many as 16 different personality types in play within any given organization at any one time. The wide range of work styles and temperaments adds to a business’s diversity and creative input. But they can also cause misunderstandings and inadvertent tension; including strains that are exasperated when goal setting or recognition attempts are mishandled.

How can today’s companies understand and motivate different personality types and strike the right chord with their employees?

In this month’s Performance Perspective we explore:

  • Extroverts vs. Introverts

  • Judging vs. Perceiving

  • Thinking vs. Feeling
