Deadwood (1 Disc)

For all their differences, the four mismanagement styles, (P---), (-A--), (--E-), and (---I), have one trait in common: They are all inflexible stereotypes. The managers who exhibit these styles have uni-dimensional, one-track minds. They have only a limited perception of who they are and of what they are supposed to do in life. They are not well-rounded individuals.

Anyone who exhibits an exclusive, single-role management style is in danger of becoming Deadwood, a fanatic, or a martyr. Each of the previous styles of mismanagement were three quarters deadwood (P---),(-A--),(--E-) and (---I).

How to Deal With an A-Type (1 Disc)

The (A)-type is more interested in the "how" than in the "what." What does this mean? He confuses form with function, so we have to pay enormous attention to the form. He doesn't care if something is a crisis or not. He cares about whether we are following the correct procedure.

We should never talk about crises with an (A)-type; they hate crises with a vengeance. If we want to grab an (A)'s attention, we must show him that our problem is actually a violation of some longtime, preexisting policy, rule, or decision - even of common-sense principles. The word "right" is important.

How to Work Well With an Arsonist (1 Disc)

The major elements of a good communication with an E-type (either he is your subordinate or your boss) are how to present a problem, and how to present a solution.

An (E) type is not-detail oriented so he would never read a long report about a problem. Even more, he doesn't like to call it a problem. An (E) is not interested in problems; he gets annoyed when we talk about problems, because problems are something he doesn't have time for. That's why we should call it an "opportunity". After we turn the problem into an opportunity, the next step is to make the solution his idea. When you have finished the presentation of the opportunity and are answering his questions, make sure that the solution ends up having his "fingerprints" on it - that either it is his idea or it would not have worked without his corrections. What should we do if we already have a solution and we are afraid the (E) might change it? How do we make sure it will be left intact?

How to Work With a Producer/Lone Ranger (1 Disc)

A (P)-type is fast, doesn't have a lot of time, and is usually under pressure to deal with a crisis. He is generally highly structured, detail-oriented and result-oriented.

What does this mean? How should you communicate?

If we want to get a (P)'s attention, we must turn the problem into a crisis. If our problem is not a crisis, it's going to have to wait. He will tell us, "Put it on my desk," and we will never hear about it again; it will just sit there with the 350 other problems he has sitting on his desk, and it won't get attended to.

On the other hand, if it's a crisis, to him it's legitimate cause for concern and he will give you time.
