    Personality matters and how you (and your colleagues) present and portray themselves can have a marked impact on your success. This is the key message of this book, which suggests that a founder or key leader’s personality and outward presentation can make a significant contribution to a project’s or company’s success, working in conjunction with other well-known factors. It can be one of the few factors you can directly and specifically influence with a degree of certainty, yet it seems to be of Personality matters and how you (and your colleagues) present and portray themselves can have a marked impact on your success. This is the key message of this book, which suggests that a founder or key leader’s personality and outward presentation can make a significant contribution to a project’s or company’s success, working in conjunction with other well-known factors. It can be one of the few factors you can directly and specifically influence with a degree of certainty, yet it seems to be often overlooked. This book may help you change that and certainly if you manage to get this area under control then it can have the potential to influence other areas for mutual benefit. The authors used an analytic methodology to identify four distinct personalities that can be found within successful business builder personalities, and here they leverage this with other research, interviews, academic information and real-world interactions to great effect to present their views. The result is this book and its potential to let you transform yourself, with a guided toolbox at your disposal, and then the rest of the future success pathway is down to you and your possible creations. The book was written in a clear, hype-free manner, which provides a credible and informative read. No faux inspiration or ‘blowing smoke’ was needed here. You may read this and still feel it is ‘not you’ but that need not be a failure of the book or the reader. Leadership is not for everyone, some people work better in the shadows than in the spotlight, but still there is scope for positive change for all thanks to this book. It is certainly something worthy of closer consideration and may be a vital aid to you going forward.

    Good book I'm placing on the shelf for future re-reading. Great insights for how your personality should mesh with members and new recruits for your team/venture. There was considerable fluff in this one, and I found I identified strongly with two of the four builder types, but not completely with either one, so I felt a little lost throughout the book. If you're starting a business that requires a strong team to found and/or aggressively grow, this book will be required reading before you begin Good book I'm placing on the shelf for future re-reading.

    This book was read through my involvement in a leadership book club. As I read this book and even experienced how it is structured, it really became just another Gift test type book. Not a lot to write due to the material it was covering. The gift test was fine and then each chapter takes on each gift from the test results. It does give you different categories, titles etc for you to store away as part of what different gifts make up each of us. In all fairness, I probably critique this kind of This book was read through my involvement in a leadership book club.

    READ JUN 2018 This is a good resource for any entrepreneur working independently or within the constructs of a traditional organization. The authors take a bold step in recognizing the impact a founder has on the organization. Their model describes four builder personalities that approach growth in unique ways. If you want insight into your growth profile and more importantly, to understand how to leverage and expand your growth potential, this is a must read.

    It has been a revealing experience reading this book. Even though I don't own or manage a business now, it pays to know what type of builder I would be once I get there. This book is helpful for anyone who wanted to scale their businesses to the next level and create a team of people who will make sure that things will happen.

    3.5. Quality content with many learnings but the nuance of builder type is lost after assignment a bit causing conflict.
