About this product
- DescriptionBased on a massive Gallup study of 2 million people, this book shows 1) individuals how to cultivate their own career strengths and strengths, 2) managers how to capitalize the talents of their people, and 3) executives how to build an entire organization around the talents of each employee. By the principal author of the national bestseller First, Break All the Rules. Most Americans do t kw what their strengths are. When you ask them, they look at you with a blank stare, or they respond in terms of subject kwledge, which is the wrong answer.

Our talents remain in the background, like sundials in the shade. This book will right our skewed perspective. It will throw light on each person's unique set of strengths and talents and show him how to focus and perfect these strengths. At the heart of the book is the StrengthFinder Profile, the product of a twenty-five year, multimillion dollar effort to identify the most prevalent human talents.

This last year the data was meta-analysed and from all these interviews emerged thirty-four distinct talents or themes. In this book we introduce these thirty-four themes and, using the StrengthsFinder Profile, reveal to each reader which of the thirty-four represent his or her most dominant. Here are just a few of the individual talent themes, of which there are countless possible combinations: Achiever: Your Achiever talent helps explain your drive. You feel as if every day starts at zero. By the end of the day you must rack up some numbers to feel good about yourself. Achiever is the power supply that causes you the set the pace and define the levels of productivity for your workgroup. Activator: When can we start? is the recurring question in your life. You believe that action is the best device for learning. You kw that often you have to make a decision without every last bit of desirable information. This does t frighten you. Belief: If you possess strong Belief talent, you have certain core values that are Each copy of Now, Discover Your Strengths includes a unique access code to the Clifton Strengthsfinder assessment and website.
