Strengths Based Leadership: Great Leaders, Teams, and Why People Follow

    By Tom Rath, Barry Conchie
In recent years, while continuing to learn more about strengths, Gallup scientists have also been examining decades of data on the topic of leadership. They studied more than 1 million work teams, conducted more than 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.
The results of that research are unveiled in "Strengths Based Leadership." Using Gallup's discoveries, authors Tom Rath and Barry Conchie identify three keys to being a more effective leader and use firsthand accounts from highly successful leaders -- including the founder of Teach For America and the president of The Ritz-Carlton -- to show how each person's unique strengths can drive their success.
A new leadership version of Gallup's popular StrengthsFinder assessment helps readers discover their own special gifts and specific strategies for leading with their top five strengths. Filled with novel research and actionable ideas, "Strengths Based Leadership" will give you a new road map for leading people toward a better future.
