This book is not just about using the Birkman method. Nor is it just for Birkman coaches. It is a work of discovery. It is a discussion on the ontology of personality from the point of view of the philosophy of language. It’s about how our personalities work, how and why we communicate the way we do, and how we can shift our automatic responses and actions to make conscious choices and produce better outcomes in our lives.
