    This is not a book that you would read cover-to-cover, but it is definitely a great reference book to keep on your shelf.

Anyone who manages others, mentors, or provides feedback should glance through this book in the store to see what they think. This book lists 160+ competencies of which it provides ideas on how you might improve. For example, if you feel that you might need help with delegation, then you would look up that competency and then you can read through points to determine if that competency for you is one that is unskilled, skilled, or overused. You can then read about some causes and some remedies for issues that you might be experiencing with that competency. This is a book that I would most likely pull off the shelf a few times per year as I am trying to review my personal progress and trying to set goals for the upcoming months. It has plenty of great ideas.

    An extensive self-evaluation manual on personal and interpersonal skills. I liked how the book is structured. The most interesting part is where correlations between various skills are projected into how one can improve a skill by compensating it by other skills.

    This is a fantastic resource for anyone wanting to work on their career. This is a very comprehensive guide for assessing your professional strengths and weaknesses. And then it provides a fantastic list of improvement ideas and further reading to address any aspect of your professional life that you'd like to work on. Again, a fantastic resource for any professional.

    I have the 5th edition. Very insightful book gives tips on how to work on our weaknesses & play to our strengths while at the same time not become overbearing and monotone in our talents. A must read for anyone working in a team environment or those with careers in today's corporate America or middle-management.

    I have this book and love it! I was given an edition as a gift and I had to buy a more recent edition because the one I was given was constently being lent out. I use it as a reference and resource for myself, my employees and anyone I'm mentoring. Great book, wonderful resource!

    It's worth having your own copy of this book so you can mark it up, like a workbook. I borrowed a copy, and read through parts, but it would be much more effective used as a work book or along with a journal.

    Great book to help you when you reach a point and you wonder what is next and how you can grow. Large list of valuable skills explaining each of them in depth and advising on how to becoming better with them. from there it is up to you to apply it or not!

    Recommended to me by a client - ties in nicely with job right job design, effective and ineffective performance in a role and the use of Hogan Assessments to ascertain the personality, potential derailers and values in a person. Will be an invaluable coaching resource. PB

    This is a rather extensive tome of HR and development. Good place to start for odd issues. I feel people could live in this book and never get outside of it, that'd be the only downfall I see.

    This book is like a crash into the competency you want to quickly work upon. No more than 3 / 4 page per competency , has good reference to read further and very crisp guide into improving competency. I somehow feel this is more for an advanced training than a beginners guide to improving competencies

As a result an individual or manager can take FYI off the shelf and use this development resource anytime there is a development need. I recommend this as a resource for all managers and for anyone wanting to work on their career.

    Sweet and simple...once you read the instructions for how to read it! Certainly not for in-depth 'self-improvement,' but more along the lines of "oh this is hard for you sometimes? Here's some ideas on how to work on that- and further reading for you to consider!" Kind of fun, I like having it at the office when I'm stumped with a work-related issue.
