Summary Description

Research data shows that most people do not come close to making full use of their assets at work.  In fact, only 17 percent of the work force believes they use all of their strengths on the job.  In this summary the author aims to change that through a six-step, six-week experience that will reveal the hidden dimensions of your strengths.

Beginning with the million-copy best-sellers First, Break All the Rules and Now, Discover Your Strengths, Marcus Buckingham jump-started the “strengths movement” that is now sweeping the business world. Now that the movement is in full swing, Buckingham’s new book answers the ultimate question: How can you actually apply your strengths for maximum success at work?

Buckingham spent 17 years at the Gallup Organization, where he conducted research into the world’s best leaders, managers, and workplaces. He now has his own company, providing strengths-based consulting, training, and e-learning.

Research data shows that most people do not come close to making full use of their assets at work. In fact, only 17 percent of the work force believe they use all of their strengths on the job. Our summary of Go Put Your Strengths to Work aims to change that through a six-step, six-week experience that will reveal the hidden dimensions of your strengths. You will learn:

  • Why your strengths aren’t “what you are good at” and your weaknesses aren’t “what you are bad at.”
  • How to use 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 away from those that don’t. And
  • The 15-minute weekly ritual that will keep you on your strengths path for your entire career.
