Life-Changing Wisdom for Anyone Who has a Personality or Knows Someone Who Does
Take Flight Learning
This book was an incredible read. It takes the personality types of the DISC style and convert's them into birds. And then through a series of short parables the different birds learn to maximize the advantages of their type and how to overcome some of the weaknesses. The material is very easy to access based on the way it is presented. This is one of the best personal development books I have ever read. The Chameleon: Life-Changing Wisdom for Anyone Who has a Personality or Knows Someone Who Does by Merrick Rosenberg. The book reads much like Patrick Lencioni's leadership books, for each chapter is a parable teaching a lesson based on the bird types.
The types are:
Dominance - Eagle
Influence - Interactive - Parrot
Steadiness - Supportive - Dove
Conscientiousness - Logical - Owl
But it is also part the 5 Love Languages and part stoic wisdom. Merrick uses the birds because once people hear him speak about the birds they never forget their bird type. But for years people came up to him saying they had heard him speak, or read about DISC bust usually were not sure what their type was.
The description of the book is: "Laugh And Learn Through Twenty-Two Entertaining Fables That Reflect The Challenges You Experience In Your Life story.
Guided by an all-knowing chameleon, four unassuming birds play the roles of the personality styles. The insights gained from their interactions and struggles will lift you to new heights of understanding yourself. Let the Wisdom of The Chameleon Enable You to Effortlessly Adapt to the People and Situations Around You.
Join an Eagle, Parrot, Dove, and Owl on their enlightening journey as you learn to:
- Capitalize on your strengths-
- Deepen your most important relationships
- Enhance your career
- Live a more fulfilling life
It is a great little read and I thing you will be interested in it, and will greatly benefit from this great read.
