With different personalities in every office, how do you get co-workers to co-exist? A new book, “Business Chemistry: Practical Magic for Crafting Powerful Work Relationship ” finds there are four distinct personality types and working styles. CNBC’s “On the Money” talked with author Suzanne Vickberg about how can everyone get along and get more work done?
San Francisco Review of Books has released its review of Business Chemistry: Practical Magic for Crafting Powerful Work Relationships.
“For good relationships to become great collaborations, those involved must develop precisely the same chemistry on which Kim Christfort and Suzanne Vickberg focus in this book,” writes Robert Morris, who has reviewed more than 3,400 books.

As part of Forbes’ Supporting Today’s Workforce series, Career Bliss Contributor, Kathy Caprino, interviewed Business Chemistry’s co-authors Kim Christfort and Suzanne Vickberg about how leaders can use Business Chemistry to get the most out of their teams.
“A one-size-fits-all approach won’t work well on a team with a mix of types, as each type has different preferences in the workplace and different kinds of interactions or situations that can kill their potential or unlock it,” says Kim Christfort, National Managing Director of the Deloitte Greenhouse Experience.
Suzanne Vickberg, Business Chemistry’s lead researcher, said leaders can benefit when they have a mix of working types on their team. “You wouldn’t want a team that was all about creative ideas with no focus on implementing those ideas. Or one that was just gunning for the big win with no attention paid to the people involved in getting there.”

“With a plethora of reports around that generalise the behaviour of an entire generation of people, yet another exploration of the Millennial has to be approached with caution. But for this latest study, “The Millennial mindset: Work styles and aspirations of the most misunderstood worker”, Deloitte Greenhouse analyses the Business Chemistry types of millennials and (thank goodness) dismisses some of the most common stereotypes.”
