Starts with a cool idea: instead of spending time trying to get wors at things you have no talent for, why not work at being great at things you have a natural affinity for?

Instead, we should spend our efforts in line with our talents and become really great at them.The book outlines 34 themes, or areas of strength that Gallup has identified after looking at millions of profiles.

It also gives you access to an online assessment that will magically tell you your top five strengths.

But the magical assessment program did not pick it when it used a whole slew of weird questions to somehow plumb my subconscious and decide on what my top five strengths were.The book is essentially a sales pitch for the blo.

But there 's something in the assessment spit out by the website or anywhere in the ook about how your strengths interact with one another.

No " If you 've got these two strong strengths be careful you do n't come across as a severe hardass " or " Manage your time so people do n't think you 're a lazybones " type material.So I 'm not sure what this will get the managers.

Or another manager 's propensity to treat the booksellers like dirt because of his own issues.Maybe they 'll have to read Strengths-Based Leadership to figure that out.

At Page 29 you read " Parting Thoughts. " This is basically where the book ends and you 're pointed to a website where you must register to take a test to help you identify your strengths.

Essentially, you 're paying$ 24.95 to take a test, not for a ook.

If I wanted my kids to be eage to use Strengths Finder, I 'd have to shell out more money and buy copies of the ook for each of them.

Why on earth would I want multiple copies of this nigh-useless book lying around? Moreover, the test itself was exceedingly non-specific, the supposed strengths listed were just generic overviews of broad personality traits, and the " Ideas for Action " it offered were really quite vague.

For xample: " Wise forethought can remove obstacles before they appear. " " Trust your insights, and use them to ensure the success of your efforts. " " Find people who like to talk about the same issues you do.

I had taken the test already and been provided with the supplementary material, so this does n't have a lot to add except for advice on how to work with people with the strengths you do n't have.

That 's good to remember.I love the whole etho of it- it 's a way to celebrate diversity and understand that we all have different strengths and we need to work together so we can benefit from things we do n't have and vice versa.
