Book Review - The Genius of Opposites
About the Book
FDR and Eleanor. Mick and Keith. Jobs and Woz. There are countless examples of introvert-extrovert partnerships who make brilliant products, create great works of art, and even change history together. But these partnerships don't just happen. They demand wise nurturing.
The key, says bestselling author Jennifer Kahnweiler, is for opposites to stop emphasizing their differences and use approaches that focus them both on moving toward results. Kahnweiler's first-of-its-kind practical five-step process helps introverts and extroverts understand and appreciate each other's wiring, use conflicts to spur creativity, enrich their own skills by learning from the other, and see and act on things neither would have separately. Kahnweiler shows how to perform the delicate balancing act required to create a whole that is exponentially greater than the sum of its parts.
My Take on the Book
They always say that opposites attract in love, but this book really examines the world of opposites and work too. The author truly shares an amazing picture of how you can create a thriving work environment with the opposites that you have there. While introverts and extroverts are different in the way they process information and how they interact with people this does not have to impact productivity and this book clearly articulates this in a succinct and clear way with tangible outcomes that you can take away to implement in your own life.
