Publisher Comments:

Do you what you do best every day?

Chances are, you don't. From the cradle to the cubicle, we devote more time to fixing our shortcomings than to developing our strengths.

To help people uncover their talents, Gallup introduced StrengthsFinder in the 2001 management book Now, Discover Your Strengths. The book ignited a global conversation, while StrengthsFinder helped millions discover their top five talents.

In StrengthsFinder 2.0, Gallup unveils the new and improved version of its popular online assessment. With hundreds of strategies for applying your strengths, StrengthsFinder 2.0 will change the way you look at yourself—and the world—forever.

Available exclusively in StrengthsFinder 2.0 (using the access code included with each book)

• The StrengthsFinder 2.0 assessment, fine-tuned to be faster and more accurate

• A Strengths Discovery and Action-Planning Guide featuring:  A customized version of your top five theme report; 50 Ideas for Action for building on your top five themes; A strengths-based action plan for setting goals

• And much more on the StrengthsFinder 2.0 website:  A strengths community area; Resources, activities, and discussion guides; A strengths screensaver and program for creating display cards of your top five themes

Gold Gato, March 27, 2012 (view all comments by Gold Gato)
"You cannot be anything you want to be - but you can be a whole lot more of who you already are."

People love to find out who they are and what they're best at doing. For the world of business, it can be very helpful to have a fix on your strengths, rather than your weakness. The basic theory that has been taught in corporations since the mid 1990s has been a fixation on strengthening an employee's weakness...which simply makes no sense. After all, we are who we are. It's like marrying someone and then demanding they become someone else. Well, that's what organizations do.

The benefit of knowing your own strengths is to know how you can handle stress, workload, and getting up in the morning. This book is also instrumental in discovering your team's strengths, which leads to putting together a diverse team. There is a sealed code at the end of the book which allows you to take the test online to determine your category.

Now, the reason I give the rating of three stars is because it starts to be a bit too much. After you take the test, you get five strengths to review. Let's be honest, I'm lucky if I have two, let alone five, strengths in me. It would have been more productive to focus on one main strength. But then I am who I am. Or something like that.

Book Season = Year Round (your strength might change with the season)
