Item description for Core Qualities: A Gateway to Human Resources by Daniel Ofman...
The unique core quadrant methodology illustrated in this guide presents a framework for improving any manager's workplace performance. The core quadrant system is built on the principles of the enneagram and further refines the core qualities that define the enneagram's nine personality types. By recognizing qualities such as determination, precision, flexibility, orderliness, and empathy in oneself and one's employees, managers can create environments that allow individuals to flourish within organizations. This system provides managers with insight into the motivations of their employees and is particularly valuable in dealing with difficult or incompatible personality types.

Reviews - What do customers think about Core Qualities: A Gateway to Human Resources?
great book for anyone involved in organizational development Oct 31, 2004
This book is a must-read for anyone involved in organizational development. And who isn't?
The book looks at the organization as a living thing, in need of balance and natural growth and contraction. A large part of the book is centered on the individual within the organization and analyses its behavior in relation to others.
Ofmans theory of the Core Qualities is a practical guide to clarify your own irritations, allergies and pitfalls. So, in stead of searching for weaknesses in other people (which can and do irritate you) and learn to try to correct them, it analyses why those weaknesses irritate you, and what you can do to control or change in yourself.
