Marcus Buckingham has dedicated his career to addressing this complex issue. As a Senior Researcher at Gallup Organization, he has challenged entrenched preconceptions about achievement to get to the core of what drives success for more than two decades.The definitive treatment of strengths in the workplace can be found in Buckingham’s best-selling books: “First, Break All the Rules; “Now, Discover Your Strengths”; “The One Thing You Need to Know”; “Go Put Your Strengths To Work”; “The Truth About You” and “Find Your Strongest Life.” His New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller “StandOut,” a book and strengths assessment combination that uses a new research methodology to reveal your top two “strength Roles”— your areas of comparative advantage. “
The goal is to move companies toward greater success and productivity by creating a workplace in which employees spend more than 75% of each day on the job using their strongest skills and engaged in their favorite tasks, basically doing exactly what they want to do. Companies that focus on cultivating employees’ strengths rather than simply improving their weaknesses stand to dramatically increase efficiency while allowing for maximum personal growth.
He calls it the “strengths revolution,” and he founded The Marcus Buckingham Company in 2005 to help jump-start a worldwide conversation about how to get people focused on their strengths. As he addresses more than 250,000 people around the globe each year, Buckingham touts this strengths revolution as the key to finding the most effective route to personal achievement and the missing link to the efficiency, competence, and high performance for which companies constantly strive. He challenges conventional wisdom and shows the correlation between engaged employees and business fundamentals such as turnover rates, customer satisfaction, profits and productivity.
As an author, independent consultant and speaker, Marcus has been in The New York Times, Fortune, Fast Company, Harvard Business Review, USA Today and The Wall Street Journal. He has appeared on numerous television programs, including “The Today Show” and “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” and is routinely lauded by such corporations as Toyota, Coca-Cola, Master Foods, Wells Fargo, Microsoft and Disney as an invaluable resource in informing, challenging, mentoring and inspiring people to find their strengths and sustain long-lasting personal success.
