Unfortunately, most of us have little sense of our talents and strengths, much less the ability to build our lives around them. Instead guided by our teachers, parents and managers we become experts in our weaknesses and spend our lives trying to repair these flaws, whilst our strengths lie dormant and neglected. Marcus Buckingham and Donald Clifton, Chair of the Gallup International research & Education Centre, have created a revolutionary programme to help readers identify their talents, build them into strengths and enjoy consistent, near-perfect performance. At the heart of the book is the innovative internet-based Strengths Finder profile, access to which is provided by a unique number found in each copy of the book. This programme introduces thirty-four dominant themes that when combined, can provide an insight into the readers core abilities and how they can be translated into personal and career success.
