A Book & Personality Profile Tool From Gallup

SUMMARY: Do you have the opportunity to do what you do best every day? Chances are, you don’t. All too often, our natural talents go untapped. From the cradle to the cubicle, we devote more time to fixing our shortcomings than to developing our strengths. To help people uncover their talents, Gallup introduced the first version of its online assessment, StrengthsFinder, in 2001 which ignited a global conversation and helped millions to discover their top five talents. Loaded with hundreds of strategies for applying your strengths, this new book and accompanying website will change the way you look at yourself–and the world around you–forever.

  • A new and upgraded edition of the StrengthsFinder assessment
  • A personalized Strengths Discovery and Action-Planning Guide for applying your strengths in the next week, month, and year
  • A more customized version of your top five theme report
  • 50 Ideas for Action (10 strategies for building on each of your top five themes)

REVIEW:  I first encountered StrengthFinders when volunteering with a campus ministry. All leaders discovered their 5 top strengths and how those complimented the rest of the team.  This is helpful within any team, large or small, business or professional, to know the gifts that each person has – Kyle Pedersen

USE CASES: Use the tool to learn more about yourself and your own personal Top 5 strengths. Use the tool with your small group, or team to understand group dynamics.

SPEED BUMPS:  The book is written from a business and self-improvement perspective. Some readers may not like that faith is not referenced very often.
