The Quick Guide to the 16 Personality Types and Career Mastery was written to help you bring the principles and practices of personal mastery to your career development. Career Mastery is about clarifying your purpose, honing your intent, finding and managing a career, and working effectively in any given job or role. Mastering your career means consciously engaging each of the Elements of Career Mastery‹five processes that are essential to discovering and building a career as well as enhancing your success and development in your current work role.

The activities in this book provide a framework for self-coaching by helping you uncover what you really want in your career and by providing insight into how your personality style influences your approach to the behavioral options represented by each of these essential career elements. Career Mastery and personal mastery are about waking up to a world that is more wondrous than can be confined to the habitual perceptions of your everyday personality. Wake up to that world and wake up to your power.


"For anyone serious about career exploration, Charles Martin provides an excellent set of probing and practical exercises for using one's psychological type preferences and personality characteristics in making career plans."
--Gordon Lawrence
author, People Types and Tiger Stripes

"How refreshing! A personality type book that focuses on understanding your type and how type affects how you plan your career (and how you perform in your career) rather than using type to 'plug in to the right career.' [Charles Martin] teaches the reader how to ask questions related to type. An excellent, easy-to-read book."

"For some years I worked with the long-term unemployed, and I would have really appreciated access to both the model contained within this book and the detailed yet user-friendly supporting material. Charles Martin provides a comprehensive distance learning course in Career Mastery that I believe will help anyone wishing to start out in a career, advance, or change direction at whatever stage."

"Charles Martin's book inspires us to wake up to our potential. He stretches us to go beyond personality type and connect with our true essence, or Self. The five Elements of Career MasteryTM provide the path to unlock our potential and personality type gives us the keys to mastering the five elements. I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking a connection between the life journey and a more fulfilling career!"
