The topic of personality in the workplace has always been a popular subject. And for a good reason. That s because personality is the root source of our behavior, our actions, our performance. It determines how we communicate, influence as leaders, and get along with others. On a larger scale, personality shapes team dynamics - and even sets the tone of an organization s culture. It can also become a competitive advantage, if people understand how it works and how to use it.
