Description

Unfortunately, most of us have little sense of our talents and strengths. Instead, guided by parents, teachers, managers, and psychology's fascination with pathology, we become experts in our weaknesses and spend our lives trying to repair these flaws, while our strengths lie dormant and neglected.
At the heart of this book is Gallup's StrengthsFinder assessment, the product of a 25-year, multimillion-dollar effort to identify the most prevalent human strengths. The program introduces 34 “themes" and reveals how they can be translated into personal and career success. In developing this program, Gallup conducted psychological profiles with more than 2 million individuals to help you learn how to focus and perfect these themes.
