If you have ever worked in a corporate world, you are likely to have been confounded by some of its more curious characters – the sentimental dame with her sappy reminiscing, the bumbling accountant who can never seem to figure it out on his own and the freshly minted management graduate who is a walking encyclopedia – to name just a few.
Getting along is not always easy. But don’t lose hope just yet.

It is the perfect compass with which to navigate the rough seas of the business world.
While doing our jobs we meet a so many people with similar or different personalities and opinions. Corporate Avatars has been a nice one time read for me. It has provided me insights into 50 different types of these personalities at our workspace. You will not feel bored or find a character which shouldn’t be there in the book.
It gave me a lot of tips & suggestions on how to deal & work with these kinda people which are never taught in our schools or colleges. Do you agree with me on this? Author has covered almost all the types of personalities we encounter at our workspaces, right from Mr. Free Rider to Mr. Confused and the list goes on…

It would have been a great read if it were more of story-based rather than more of tips & bits of advice. Because people kinda learn more from the stories & experiences when it comes to self-help articles or books. They seek some sort of advice which comes out of personal experiences and stories/examples basically.
No doubt that all the chapters actually start with a story-line but when it comes to the ratio of storytelling & tips, it’s heavier on tip’s side. I would have loved it more in a story-telling way as per my personal opinion. Other than the above Disha has a good hand at telling stories and keeping the readers engaged. I always felt excited while I would be finished reading 1 chapter and then the other. So, overall a good read.
