I’ve been looking forward to digging into Go Put Your Strengths to Work: 6 Powerful Steps to Achieve Outstanding Performance by Marcus Buckingham. Not sure if you’re down with Marcus or not…but he’s zeroed in on an area that is just fascinating. It was certainly not original with him, but the concept that he worked to develop in Now, Discover Your Strengths is so important…from an understanding how you’re wired perspective…that hopefully you’ve already really benefited from it.
This new book takes the knowledge of how you’re wired to a new, much more important level. Beyond being simply aware of how you’re wired, Go Put Your Strengths to Work establishes 6 steps that will help you take advantage of that knowledge. Cool? And believe me, there is already a lot here.
Can I ask you to jump in on this one? Have you read Now, Discover Your Strengths? How did you use the information? Have you used it? If you’re like me, it confirmed what you already suspected. Maybe even reinforced your impression that you were wired a certain way. But did it change the way you operated or what you focused on? Would you take just a moment and comment?
