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.

In its latest national bestseller, StrengthsFinder 2.0, Gallup unveils the new and improved version of its popular assessment, language of 34 themes, and much more (see below for details). While you can read this book in one sitting, you'll use it as a reference for decades. 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. Available exclusively in StrengthsFinder 2.0: (using the unique access code included with each book)  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)

Reviews: I just received my 5 copies this past week (yes, I'm a "dealer")and I'm greatly impressed with the upgrades they've made to the book. Gallup has streamlined the book to serve more like a small manual for people taking the online instrument, without the other data and commentary present in "Now, Discover Your Strengths". They have wisely put the codes in an enclosed envelope to prevent "code stealing". The book is also linked to a new version of their website that contains improved interpretation resources and personalized reports. (There are even options for what type of "certificate" you want to print out. Fancy) The book also includes small stickers for each of the 34 talent themes so you can stick your "top 5" on its glossy red and white cover for a convenient reminder. Cute to some, essential for others. Buying the book is still the only way to take the

online instrument, but now it's more affordable and streamlined. Let the Strengths Revolution continue!

I've been a senior leader of several organizations, and consequently have been exposed to a gauntlet of industrial psychologists, personality tests, intelligence tests, leadership training, cultural orientations, yada yada. This book/body of knowledge/tool does 2 things extremely well. By well, I mean in an optimal way measured by the degree of understanding relative to the time investment. First, for an investment of maybe an hour at minimum, and an additional few hours to explore the guidance and begin to consider the implications and choose new behaviors, etc. you get, in my opinion, the best single, and correct perspective about yourself than any combination of the other methods mentioned above, period. It is not just directionally correct, like a horoscope type paragraph that would be true for anyone who read it, but rather a set of desciptions of your strengths that just "nail it" and descibe you as you know yourself. It tells you about yourself in a way that you can understand, regardless of whether you or anyone who is around you has ever articulated it. The second thing it does well is offer a rational and empirically validated framework that is just long overdue. It is a simple truth that has been so elusive. It addresses a major reason why leadership is so rare in business - the modern organization strangles out your ability to contribute by trying to fix what you will likely never be much good at, or hate doing even if you end up with some level of proficiency at it. Get it, read it (25 minutes) and take the online test (35 minutes). If you are like me and the 50 people around me who've infectiosuly taken and immediately recommended this thing to their inner circle of friends and family, you will absolutley find value in it. But like anything, an idea or a tool is only as good as it is put to use. A master craftsman never blames his tools. Remember to act on it and that is something for which only you can be responsible.
