Description

From the coauthor of the million copy bestsellers First, Break All the Rules and Now, Discover Your Strengths

Marcus Buckingham jump-started the Strengths movement that is now sweeping the work world with his first two blockbusters. Now, he answers the ultimate question: How can you actually apply your strengths for maximum success at work? Research data show that most people do not come close to making full use of their assets at work. Go Put Your Strengths to Work will reveal the hidden dimensions of your strengths through a six-step, six-week experience that will tell you:

Why your strengths aren't "what you are good at" and your weaknesses aren't "what you are bad at."

How to use the four telltale signs to identify your strengths.

The simple steps you can take each week to push your time at work toward those activities that strengthen you, and how to cut out those that don't.

How to talk to your boss and your colleagues about your strengths without sounding like you're bragging, and your weaknesses without sounding like you're whining.

The fifteen-minute weekly ritual that will keep you on your strengths path for your entire career.

As part of the program you'll take an online Strength Engagement Track, a powerful gauge to measure the level of engagement of your or your team's strengths. Go Put Your Strengths to Work will open up exciting uncharted territory for you and your organization. Join the strengths movement, and thrive.

    I'll bet I've logged 20+ different types of personality assessments. Some resonate more than others, but none as well as this next step. Buckingham shares a straightforward method for understanding and leveraging personal strengths. They truly are "personal" because he leads the reader to determine exactly how, when, and with whom a general ability becomes a strength. For example, "analyzing data," isn't a strength. What is? "I feel strong when I analyze data about human performance and discover relevant insights." Buckingham shows how using strengths actually makes a person stronger. It's a great next step and one I recommend to anyone looking to reach their full potential.
