Publisher's Summary

Marcus Buckingham jump-started the Strengths movement now sweeping the work world with his first two blockbusters. Now, he answers the ultimate question: How can you actually apply your strengths for maximum success at work? Research data show that most people do not come close to making full use of their assets on the job. Go Put Your Strengths to Work will reveal the hidden dimensions of your strengths through a six-step, six-week experience that will tell you:

Why your strengths aren't "what you are good at" and your weaknesses aren't "what you are bad at"
How to use the four telltale signs to identify your strengths
The simple steps you can take each week to push your time at work toward those activities that strengthen you, and how to cut out those that don't
How to talk to your boss and your colleagues about your strengths without sounding like you're bragging, and your weaknesses without sounding like you're whining
The 15-minute weekly ritual that will keep you on your strengths path for your entire career.

Wonderful book on personal development

"Go put your strengths to work" delivers what it promises: it is a very practical approach to applying strengths based career and development thinking in everyday life. While listening to this audiobook, I had several "eye opening" moments. The proposition that studying failure does not provide clues to what makes excellence, but that success comes from amplyfying strengths, is a very strong statement, that everybody working on personal development (their own or others) should take to heart. One of the very few downsides of the book is that it is very focused on employees, not independent entrepreneurs like myself.

Bringing it together

I'll buy Buckinghams books just to hear his voice but, in this book the he finally tells us how to intergrate all of his previous books. The other books were good but this one brings it all together.

Could be better

Would you try another book written by Marcus Buckingham or narrated by Marcus Buckingham?

I agree this begins to grate after a while. The author would have done well to have employed someone else to read it as he has the most irritating voice on the planet. He also seems to be everso slightly ego centric.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I wouldn't have waffled on so much . A lot of what he says is good but could have been said much more succinctly.

Would you be willing to try another one of Marcus Buckingham’s performances?

No, his voice is still haunting me.
