It helps to know who you are Jul 9, 2002
As a leadership coach, I am constantly on the look for additional reference material and Tom's book proved to be a great resource. The Despard Performancy Type Test was an excellent starting point to help me understand myself a little better, but more importantly understand how I could be a better me. Tom's book is somewhat like a Reader's Digest version of many books - I appreciated his down-to-earth, common-sense approach to "knowing how we work". It's definitely a very needed book and one that I totally recommend.
A gold mine! Apr 20, 2002
Tom Despard is a man with tremendous business experience and a knack for sharing important practical advice about business success with others. This book is a very helpful tool for understanding how to be your best at work. I don't know another one quite like it. I enjoyed it a lot and I recommend it highly.

Help Yourself Work Smarter! Apr 7, 2002
Despard lays out a clear path to a better understanding of how to manage your career by working with what you have. If you've ever taken a personality test and were left wondering how to actually use what you found out - Despard's idea is to meld the personality test and work advice formats into one useful book. There's a performance type test included that guides you through your type - leader, learner, innovator, manager or promoter. And advice about how to overcome your weaknesses and enhance your strengths. This is a practical book that enabled me to take a good look at how I work and how I can work smarter.
