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."
Tom Rath is one of the most influential authors of the last decade. He studies the role of human behavior in health, business, and economics.

Sorkin not only tells a gripping “perfect storm” story—reporting the gory details as our 401k’s disappeared and our financial system became nationalized—but he humanizes the players as well, resulting in an imminently readable, albeit lengthy, book.

Amazon does an interesting thing every year, putting their best selling books in each genre on the same page as their editors' pick so you can easily compare the two. I am sure that, were I an author, I'd hope to see my name on the bestsellers list. It would mean that I had not only done well financially for the year but, more importantly, that my book had made it into the hands of more readers—my ideas into the minds of more people. Read more
