The Personal User Guide

I like the Personal User Guide. With a BIG-5 personality test your Personal User Guide is created, and you can use it to guide others on how to best deal with you. And you with them.

I quote the designers of the Personal User Guide: “Making and sharing your user guide will help you to:

  1. Be real with each other.
  2. Make blindingly clear expectations your common reference point
  3. Draw a social contract on how you can relate
  4. Show how you want to build trust in communicating
  5. Show, not sell, transparency
  6. Reduce wasting time and move quickly to richer and more efficient discussions.
  7. Share your weaknesses by putting them on the table
  8. Turn working with user guides into an exercise in self-awareness.
  9. Become more predictable and authentic to your team members.
  10. Show your respect towards your team members for what they do but most of all for who they are
