Based on a Gallup study of over two million people who have excelled in their careers, NOW, DISCOVER YOUR STRENGTHS uses a revolutionary programme to help readers discover their distinct talents and strengths. The product of a twenty-five year, multi-million pound effort to identify the most prevalent human talents, the StrengthsFinder programme introduces thirty-four talents or ""themes"" and reveals how they can best be translated into personal and career success.

Each copy of the book contains a unique password that gives the reader access to the StrengthsFinder Profile, a Web-based interview that analyses people's instinctive reactions and immediately presents them with their five most dominant strengths. Once readers know which of the thirty-four talent themes dominates their personality, they can make practical applications at three levels: as an individual, as a manager and within an organisation.

Readers learn what kind of environments will allow them to flourish; how managers can better cultivate their employers' talents; and how almost all organisations inhibit the talents of their people and need to change.

What will you learn from this book

Take-Aways

1. Strengths are near perfect performance in an activity, which one can do consistently.

2. Human beings have a fixation with faults and under value the importance of strengths.

3. We spend our entire lives trying to minimize the impact of our weakness and do not capitalize on our strengths.

4. Organizations promote people based on their acquired skills rather than their natural talent. Instead, we must believe in the right assumptions that each person’s talent is unique and his or her greatest room for growth lies in the strengths.

5. To succeed in life we need to identify our strengths and play around them for success.

6. Most organizations and individuals believe in two inherent flawed assumptions that each person can learn to be competent in almost everything and secondly, each person’s greatest room for growth is his or her areas of weaknesses
