This work offers a summary of the book "GO PUT YOUR STRENGHTS TO WORK: 6 Powerful Steps to Achieve Outstanding Performance" by Marcus Buckingham.
Marcus Buckingham is the owner of his own consulting, training and e-learning company. After spending seventeen years with the Gallup Organization conducting research into workplace performance, he has become an author, researcher and speaker.
What percentage of your average work day do you spend doing those things which play to your personal strengths? Most of us seem to get sidetracked into activities which are unavoidably nonproductive.
Numerous studies of effective organizations have shown great achievers focus on capitalizing on their strengths rather than worrying about fixing their weaknesses. According to Buckingham, the challenge is to find more ways to put your strengths to work every day. It might sound impossible given your work constraints, but almost two people out of ten are already managing to do that. In Go Put Your Strenghts To Work, the author presents six steps you need to take every day in order to join their ranks.
Read this book and you will find out the hidden dimensions of your strengths.
Filled with real-life examples and structured exercises, Go Put Your Strenghts To Work is an inspiring book for businesspeople.
