Written as a story, this book explores how different personalities interact in a work environment. It provides understanding into why other people act they way they do and what happens when they drop below the line (allowing their dark side to rule). It also provides practical suggestions to help you understand how you function and how to get above the line when you are allowing your dark side to rule.

I recommend this book ...more
