The Birth Order Book: Why You Are the Way You Are by Kevin Leman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What do you do with a new team that they haven’t already done? If you’ve exhausted the Myers-Briggs test and Birkman is a little more extensive than you need, then have the whole team read “The Birth Order Book.” It’s insightful and easy to read and will tell you more about a person and his/her natural roles than most other tests–and it’s easy to decipher.
This book explains the likely successes and drawbacks of everyone you know simply based on the order they were born in the family. It might be more eye-opening than you want. You will see why you behave in certain situations and the role you have been groomed to play regardless of the setting or the level of the relationship. Every leader and manager will learn something when they read this book.
