Strengths Based Leadership
Filled with powerful research and actionable ideas, Strengths Based Leadership will give you a new road map for leading people toward a better future.
What is the path to becoming a great leader? It starts with understanding your strengths.
Great leaders know how to capitalize on their own strengths and develop the strengths of their followers.
Learn What Your Followers Need
Gallup scientists studied more than 1 million work teams, conducted over 20,000 in-depth interviews with leaders and even interviewed more than 10,000 followers around the world to ask exactly why they followed the most important leader in their life.
Three powerful findings emerged from this research. The most effective leaders:
- are always investing in strengths
- surround themselves with the right people and then maximize their team
- understand their followers' needs
As you read Strengths Based Leadership, you'll hear firsthand accounts from some of the most successful organizational leaders in recent history, from the founder of Teach For America to the president of The Ritz-Carlton, as they discuss how their unique strengths have driven their success.
