Abstract
Consultant Buckingham started the strengths movement that is now sweeping the work world. Now that the movement is in full swing, Buckingham's new book provides a six-step, six-week experience that will reveal the hidden dimensions of your strengths. Buckingham shows you how to seize control of your assets and rewrite your job description under the nose of your boss. You will learn: 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 steps you can take to push your time at work toward those activities that strengthen you and away from those that don't; how to talk to your boss and your colleagues about your strengths without sounding like you're bragging, and about your weaknesses without sounding like you're whining. Join the strengths movement and thrive!--From publisher description.
