We notice in parties or get-togethers, some people surrounded by a lot of friends all the time while there are some others sitting in the corner of the room all by themselves. The difference in these two groups is because of their different characters and personalities. Some people can communicate effectively with others. They exhibit a vibrant personality. Personality is thus a blend of temperament, character, behaviour and communication ability of a person in various situations. Some of these are in-born, and some of these can be moulded in the later years. Personality development is a tool which helps in improvement of behaviour, communication, interpersonal relationships and attitude towards ethics and life in general. Earlier people used to mistake personality to one’s physical appearance only, but now personality is considered as the ‘Brand Image’ of an individual.
‘Quest for Personality Development’ seeks to enlighten the reader to build on their unique individuality and develop their potentials into capabilities. The book is a great guide to transform a person into a winning personality. The author has presented his analysis and studies in the form of a narrative of a young man in his quest for personality development that result in a radical transformation in him. Though brilliant with an astounding academic record, Jayant, the protagonist of the book fails in the campus placement interview which he attended and what follows is a retrospection of his attitude and subsequent enlightenment on the various aspects of understanding and developing his personality.
The book is interesting and informative on an easy way as it is in the form of a narrative. The print is easy on the eye and the 229 pages that includes 11 chapters laid out in three sections brings out in a comprehensive manner, the essential components of personality development such as character, physical wellness, emotional competency, intellectual skills and personal grooming. What makes the reading all the more interesting is the idea of interspersing the narratives with anecdotes and relevant case studies to explain the various traits better.
The author, Major General (Retd) V. Uberoy has a rich experience in Army professionalism and business management acumen acquired over five and a half decades. After an illustrious army career, he had served as Chairman and CEO of Canteen Stores Department, as President of a group of companies, a visiting faculty to MBA programmes and is a consultant and trainer in the corporate world helping organisations train leaders and providing mentorship in personality development. The book is an accumulation of his personal experience and exposure to various discussions and seminars over this period. To sum up, traversing through the pages of the book is extremely rewarding as it has power to endear the reader to people by transforming him from ‘what he is’ to ‘what he can be.’
