Marcus Buckingham on Harnessing Your Key Strengths

Marcus Buckingham, author of the new book, Stand Out: The Groundbreaking New Strengths Assessment from the Leader of the Strengths Revolution, believes managers need a cheat sheet to help them identify their key strengths. Using this innovative self-assessment, find out whether your most defining traits characterize you as a pioneer, a teacher, a connector, or any of the other 9 strength roles Marcus identifies. Not only will he point out the consequences of mishandling your strengths, he will help you realize what career is best for you.

Marcus Buckingham is a best-selling author, public speaker, researcher and business consultant. He is also the founder of The Marcus Buckingham Company, which creates training programs and management tools based around his principles of “Strength”. His previous books include, First, Break All the Rules, The Truth About You, and Find Your Strongest Life.
