Marcus Buckingham, senior vice president of The Gallup Organization, is coauthor of the bestselling book First, Break All the Rules. A featured speaker at the Washington Speakers Bureau, he has appeared on CNN International, CNBC's Power Lunch, and NPR's Morning Edition, among other programs. He and his wife, Jane, live in New York City.
Based on a massive Gallup study of 2 million people, this book shows individuals how to cultivate their own career strengths and strengths, managers how to capitalize the talents of their people, and executives how to build an entire organization around the talents of each employee.

Unfortunately, most of us have little sense of our talents and strengths, much less the ability to build our lives around them. Instead, guided by our parents, by our teachers, by our managers, and by psychology's fascination with pathology, we become experts in our weaknesses and spend our lives trying to repair these flaws, while our strengths lie dormant and neglected.

Marcus Buckingham, coauthor of the national bestseller First, Break All the Rules, and Donald O. Clifton, Chair of the Gallup International Research & Education Center, have created a revolutionary program to help readers identify their talents, build them into strengths, and enjoy consistent, near-perfect performance. At the heart of the book is the Internet-based StrengthsFinder® Profile, the product of a 25-year, multimillion-dollar effort to identify the most prevalent human strengths. The program introduces 34 dominant "themes" with thousands of possible combinations, and reveals how they can best be translated into personal and career success. In developing this program, Gallup has conducted psychological profiles with more than two million individuals to help readers learn how to focus and perfect these themes.

So how does it work? This book contains a unique identification number that allows you access to the StrengthsFinder Profile on the Internet. This Web-based interview analyzes your instinctive reactions and immediately presents you with your five most powerful signature themes. Once you know which of the 34 themes -- such as Achiever, Activator, Empathy, Futuristic, or Strategic -- you lead with, the book will show you how to leverage them for powerful results at three levels: for your own development, for your success as a manager, and for the success of your organization.

With accessible and profound insights on how to turn talents into strengths, and with the immediate on-line feedback of StrengthsFinder at its core,Now, Discover Your Strengths is one of the most groundbreaking and useful business books ever written.

Please note that the code for the Online Strengths Finder Test is found on the inside of the dust jacket orin the sealed sleeve bound into the book just before the end paper.

  • Most Helpful

  • This is one of the most helpful books I've ever read, and I've read a lot of books in 30 years of teaching college and conducting business training programs. The power of this book is unique since the book cover contains a code that allows the read to take a 30-minute STRENGTHS ASSESSMENT TEST that provides one with her/his top 5 strengths out of the 34 discovered by the Gallup Organization's study of 2 million people. The combination of the test and the book's explanation of the 34 strengths allows an individual and family members to more effective choose career and hobby paths that lead to inner satisfaction and high productivity. If you want to "follow your bliss" and avoid going down numerous wrong trails, get this book ASAP. If you want you and your employees to be more productive and satified, get this book today.

  • A point well taken, but...

    The idea of the book is to help you find your talents, build your strengths, which will in turn, improve your performance. Building your strengths is indeed somthing that is often overlooked, as most of the time we seek to improve our weaknesses- that's a point well taken- and a good reason to buy the book. However two more things also need to be mentioned. First, why can't we work on building both our strengths AND our weaknesses? In other words, why do we have to necessarily pick just one? Secondly, discovering your talents and doing what you're good at may not necessarily improve your performance or your motivation. Why? Because there are lots of things we're good at, but still hate to do nonetheless. For insance I'm really good at cleaning houses and debating, but I don't like to really do either one. People only get motivated to something when they know how to do a job AND there's something meaningful in it for them- that's how you motivate people (check out The Sixty-Second Motivator for an elaboration on this). Just some food for thought.

    I love the site and have used it before with great ease and promptness. The only thing that I wish were different was the limit on the quantity of one item. I understand why of course because peopel would buy and then resell for profit but I had to order 25 books for work and had to do it in 3 orders. Besides that all was great!
