Brad Dude

Author Brad Dudeabout this book: My co-author and I received a number of requests from participants in our Leadership courses over the past 20 years for more "reader-friendly" information about temperament. Lots of other books on the subject are a bit academic with lots of psycho-babble that can turn the lay-reader off. In our Leadership modules about temperament we used the four "Basic Elements" of Earth, Air, Fire and Water since all are needed for human survival yet none carry any "baggage" that would interpret as being more important than any other. For a long time, our title was considered to be a subtitle but, as we circulated draft copies of the text, found that readers liked it more than the original -- so we kept it! The book's colorful compass implies that a better understanding of one's dominant and shadow temperaments can guide the reader to enhanced personal relationships and fewer conflicts. The hardest part of writing the book was to decide on the stories about a spouse, boss and child that would be included. We had collected lots of data through the years. Deciding what was in and what was out was very difficult for us. We hope our readers (e.g., parents, teachers, law enforcement personnel, couples, couples contemplating marriage, teenage drivers, etc.) will become more interested in the subject of how temperament influences our reactions to the behaviors of others and influences our own behaviors.
