Effectively managing personnel--as well as one's own behavior--is an extraordinarily complex task that, not surprisingly, has been the subject of countless books touting what each claims is the true path to success. That said, Marcus Buckingham and Donald O. Clifton's Now, Discover Your Strengths does indeed propose a unique approach: focusing on enhancing people's strengths rather than eliminating their weaknesses. Following up on the coauthors' popular previous book, First, Break All the Rules, it fully describes 34 positive personality themes the two have formulated (such as Achiever, Developer, Learner, and Maximizer) and explains how to build a "strengths-based organization" by capitalizing on the fact that such traits are already present among those within it.
Most original and potentially most revealing, however, is a Web-based interactive component that allows readers to complete a questionnaire developed by the Gallup Organization and instantly discover their own top-five inborn talents. This device provides a personalized window into the authors' management philosophy which, coupled with subsequent advice, places their suggestions into the kind of practical context that's missing from most similar tomes. "You can't lead a strengths revolution if you don't know how to find, name and develop your own," write Buckingham and Clifton. Their book encourages such introspection while providing knowledgeable guidance for applying its lessons. --Howard Rothman
Mike Morrison Dean, University of Toyota The code for managing has been broken and the secrets for success are here in this book! We know this from first-hand experience -- with over 2,000 Gallup 'strengths' program graduates (and growing) -- we will never look at our jobs, or our lives for that matter, the same way again. To achieve our greatest potential, this is by far the most important investment an individual or organization can make!
Martin E.P. Seligman Fox Professor of Psychology, University of Pennsylvania, Director, Positive Psychology Network, Author of Learned Optimism The keystone of high achievement and happiness is exercising your strengths, not correcting your weaknesses. The first step is knowing which strengths you own, and this superb book gives you a powerful and accurate way to find out.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi C. S. and D. J. Davidson Professor of Psychology, Peter Drucker School of Management, Claremont Graduate University, Author of Flow Now, Discover Your Strengths, based on years of research by The Gallup Organization, is a refreshingly sensible and user-friendly way to assess your psychological assets and build on them a successful and satisfying life.
Ed Diener, Ph.D., Alumni Distinguished Professor of Psychology, University of Illinois A brilliant book that will help readers to discover and capitalize on their specific strengths, as well as assist managers in supervising people with varying strengths.
Dr. Frank Schmidt Ralph L. Sheets Professor of Human Resources, Department of Management and Organization, College of Business, University of Iowa This book is built around a unique vision of the high-performing individual and the high-performing organization -- and that vision is built on a recognition of individual differences and the unique strengths of each person. A truly important book.
Mike Pucci Vice President, Glaxo Wellcome Now, Discover Your Strengths is the logical, practical application of the theories uncovered in First, Break All The Rules. We have rewritten our management development curriculum as a result of this important and defining research in leadership.
“This book has been instrumental in how we think about developing talent at Facebook.” (Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook CEO, as quoted in the New York Times &)

And if you like this idea you will also enjoy reading "Working On Yourself Doesn't Work" by Ariel and Shya Kane (link below). Their approach is less business oriented, but is definitely helpful in all areas of your life.
It's time we all discover our own greatness instead of picking on ourselves - it's the best way to stop picking on others!
Working on Yourself Doesn't Work: The 3 Simple Ideas That Will Instantaneously Transform Your Life
I enjoyed reading it.
It is one of the best books that I read about that topic. Other than the books that basically tell you all about each of 34 strength in isolation, this one covers the diverse aspects and the FAQ.
A must read for strength fans.
Amazon.de war nicht in der Lage, diesen Code zu liefern. Bin sehr enttäuscht.
