Marcus Buckingham is senior vice president of The Gallup Organization which is where you can discover your strengths at Strengthsfinder 2.0 by Tom Rath. As you notice at the bottom of my homepage, I listed my top five that I received from taking the short quiz.
His best selling book is First, Break All the Rules which I love as well. Within the next few months I will start posting about that book but I love this book because discovering your strengths, in my opinion, is the foundation for success because once you know those you can build upon them.
Most Americans do not know what their strengths are. When you ask them, they look at you with a blank stare, or they respond in terms of subject knowledge, which is the wrong answer.” – Peter Drucker
