The Groundbreaking New Strengths Assessment from the Leader of the Strengths Revolution
Buckingham wrote “First, Break All The Rules,” when he worked for Gallup in 1999. That book focused on the traits of effective managers. It sold more than 1 million copies. He later authored “Now, Discover Your Strengths,” associated with Gallup’s StrengthsFinder assessment tool, now widely used in organizations to help employees identify their talents. His latest book, “StandOut,” allows readers to sniff out their two key strengths and explains how to use them best to win at the office. Buckingham is the author of a few other books about finding your best self.
