Beschreibungen

A guide to putting cognitive diversity to work Ever wonder what it is that makes two people click or clash? Or why some groups excel while others fumble? Or how you, as a leader, can make or break team potential? Business Chemistry holds the answers. Based on extensive research and analytics, plus years of proven success in the field, the Business Chemistry framework provides a simple yet powerful way to identify meaningful differences between people’s working styles. Who seeks possibilities and who seeks stability? Who values challenge and who values connection? Business Chemistry will help you grasp where others are coming from, appreciate the value they bring, and determine what they need in order to excel. It offers practical ways to be more effective as an individual and as a leader. Imagine you had a more in-depth understanding of yourself and why you thrive in some work environments and flounder in others. Suppose you had a clearer view on what to do about it so that you could always perform at your best. Imagine you had more insight into what makes people tick and what ticks them off, how some interactions unlock potential while others shut people down. Suppose you could gain people’s trust, influence them, motivate them, and get the very most out of your work relationships. Imagine you knew how to create a work environment where all types of people excel, even if they have conflicting perspectives, preferences and needs. Suppose you could activate the potential benefits of diversity on your teams and in your organizations, improving collaboration to achieve the group’s collective potential. Business Chemistry offers all of this--you don’t have to leave it up to chance, and you shouldn’t. Let this book guide you in creating great chemistry!

Have you ever struggled to communicate with someone who spoke a different language? Did you perhaps end up raising your voice, hoping to make yourself understood? Chances are it didn't help get your point across. It's the same with working styles. When faced with someone who's different, turning up the volume on what's most comfortable for you won't get you very far. Worse, if you're dealing with a whole team of people, the problems with that approach are amplified. Business Chemistry®: Practical Magic for Crafting Powerful Work Relationships offers a better way. Drawing upon extensive research and thousands of interactions with executives in the Deloitte Greenhouse™, Kim Christfort and Suzanne Vickberg show you how to create the kind of chemistry that fuels success by engaging with others on their own terms. They explore how to simultaneously meet the needs of distinct working styles in order to harness the power of diverse perspectives. And they share learnings from leaders and their teams across industries and all over the world who have put Business Chemistry to work for themselves. Now you can do the same. A refreshing departure from the typical business read, Business Chemistry is full of colorful descriptions, evocative stories, intriguing data, and practical strategies. It offers concrete guidance on bringing out the best in people with varied strengths who excel in different contexts—Pioneers who value possibilities and spark energy and imagination, Guardians who value stability and bring order and rigor, Drivers who value challenge and generate momentum, and Integrators who value connection and draw teams together. Whether your goal is to raise your own level of performance, enhance customer engagement, or become a more effective leader, this resource provides what you need to: Build empathy and stronger relationships by recognizing key differences in how people work and what they need to thrive, then flexing your own style accordingly Manage and motivate different types of people by learning what kinds of interactions and working conditions kill their potential, and what kinds unlock it Activate the power of diversity and lead teams to success by revamping norms and ways of working so all can perform at their best By fostering a deep understanding of diverse working styles and perspectives, Business Chemistry serves as a practical guide for creating relationships, team environments, and organizational cultures that elevate the individual and collective performance of everyone.
