Most of us fail to build our lives around individual strengths and talents -- instead, misguided by parents, teachers, managers, and psychology's fascination with pathology, we focus on our weaknesses while our abilities remain in the background. Now this fascinating new audio will help anyone shed new light on what they have to offer the world, by using the StrengthFinder Profile -- Gallup's twenty-five year, multimillion dollar effort to identify the 34 most prevalent human talents through more than 2 million individual psychological profiles. Now, Discover Your Strengths boldly reveals which of the 34 themes represent the listener's most dominant strengths, and subsequently challenges workers, managers, and executives at every level to improve their lives.

The first step is knowing which strengths you own, and this superb book gives you a powerful and accurate way to find out. Mike Morrison Dean, University of Toyota The code for managing has been broken and the secrets for success are here in this book! We know this from first-hand experience -- with over 2,000 Gallup 'strengths' program graduates (and growing) -- we will never look at our jobs, or our lives for that matter, the same way again.
