Devora Zack shares her techniques for personal self assessment so managers can determine whether they are feelers or thinkers. With this understanding in place, a manager can create a flexible managerial style that fits those traits and those of the individual staff members. Devora Zack guides managers through the process of flexible communication with employees, and how to avoid the pitfalls that await unwary managers now in charge of former colleagues.
