1,001 Ways to Inspire: Your Organization, Your Team and Yourself (9781564143488): David E. Rye: Books. Narrated by Alexander Marshall, Ryes (Starting Up, Prentice-Hall, 1997) book joins a long list of also-rans attempting to reinterpret the classic material on personality types by Peter Myers and Isabel Briggs Myers. Rye simplifies the types and renames them the power player, team player, party player, and diplomatic player. The diagnostic test (unseen) to help determine ones own personality type also repeats numerous other attempts to apply this research. In this case, the emphasis is on professional and organizational situations, also already done. Understanding yourself, your boss, co-workers, and employees by superimposing the famous Myers-Briggs Inventory of Personality Types (MBTI), while useful, has already been successfully applied by numerous other writers, such as Otto Kroeger and Janet M. Thuesen (Type Talk at Work, Dell, 1989), and David Keirsey (Please Understand Me, 1978). Ryes insights to improvement and motivation would be useful in public libraries not already holding any of the many predecessors in this saturated genre.Dale Farris, Groves, TXCopyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc.
