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

by Barry Conchie, Tom Rath

Gallup Press | January 6, 2009 | Hardcover

Strengths Based Leadership: Great Leaders, Teams, and Why People Follow is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
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.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from enlightening I bought this book to read for a leadership course. I found the information to be very interesting. It made sense and helps one to not only recognize their leadership strengths but also how to work with and ensure you have other people with complimentary strengths. I also enjoyed taking the strength finder test to know what my strengths are. An excellent read for anyone in leadership.

Rated out of 5 by from Found this purchase to be a very smooth experience - my first time ordering from indigo, and to my surprise, the new book (which is the only way to get the coupon!) cost lesser than amazon and other well known book sellers online, especially when you consider the total after shipping and taxes. Am still going through the book and preparing myself to give the test online, but Id recommend shopping with indigo. The thing I liked most was the under promising and over delivering - they book was delivered to the store nearest to me as requested, before the promises turnaround time. At the store, the pick up required no standing in line and was available immediately by my just mentioning my last name and showing a peice of ID.
