Surrounded by Idiots: The Four Types of Human Behaviour (or, How to Understand Those Who Cannot Be U

Author: Thomas Erikson Narrator: David John Release Date: July 2019

Penguin presents the audio edition of Surrounded By Idiots by Thomas Erikson, read by David John. Do you ever think you're the only one making any sense? Or tried to reason with your partner with disastrous results? Do long, rambling answers drive you crazy? Or does your colleague's abrasive manner get your back up? You are not alone. After a disastrous meeting with a highly successful entrepreneur, who was genuinely convinced he was 'surrounded by idiots', communication expert and bestselling author, Thomas Erikson dedicated himself to understanding how people function and why we often struggle to connect with certain types of people. Originally published in Swedish in 2014 as Omgiven Av Idioter, Erikon's Surrounded by Idiots is already an international phenomenon, selling over 1.5 million copies worldwide, of which over 750,000 copies have been sold in Sweden alone. It offers a simple, yet ground-breaking method for assessing the personalities of people we communicate with - in and out of the office - based on four personality types (Red, Blue, Green and Yellow), and provides insights into how we can adjust the way(s) we speak and share information. Erikson will help you understand yourself better, hone communication and social skills, handle conflict with confidence, improve dynamics with your boss and team, and get the best out of the people you deal with and manage. He also shares simple tricks on body language, improving written communication and advice on when to back away or when to push on, and when to speak up or indeed shut up. Packed with 'aha!' and 'oh no!' moments, Surrounded by Idiots will help you understand and influence those around you, even people you currently think are beyond all comprehension. And with a bit of luck you can also be confident that the idiot out there isn't you!

Omgiven av idioter

Author: Thomas Erikson Narrator: Mattias Linderoth Release Date: April 2016

Har du någon gång försökt resonera med din partner och ingenting gick som du tänkt dig? Eller i förvirring lämnat ett möte med känslan att du inte begrep dig på de övriga i rummet? Och värst av allt: vissa verkar aldrig förstå vad du säger - hur tydlig du än är. Visst är det ett mysterium? Välkommen till en rad uppfriskande aha-upplevelser - möjligen även en eller annan åh nej-upplevelse - och med lite flyt är det inte du som är idioten. Efter att ha läst den här boken kommer du att förstå vad din omgivning egentligen vill säga dig. Jag garanterar att du radikalt kommer att minska mängden idioter i din omgivning, hälsar Thomas Erikson. Omgiven av idioter beskriver konkret och underhållande en av världens mest spridda metoder för att sortera olikheterna inom mänsklig kommunikation. Via den vetenskapliga bakgrunden, genom vardagens möten, ger den ett konkret hjälpmedel att förstå de viktigaste skillnaderna mellan olika kommunikations­stilar. Den visar på en av de vanligaste orsakerna till konflikter i vardagen - dålig kommunikation. Och den ger dig som läsare svaret på frågan: vad gör jag åt det? Efter att ha läst boken kommer ingenting att se ut som förr. Thomas Erikson är beteendevetare, coach, föreläsare, ledarskapstränare och författare. Han driver en konsultverksamhet med fokus på att förändra beteenden inom olika typer av organisationer, och coachar ett antal chefer varje år inom det svenska näringslivet.
