StrengthsFinder 2.0 features the NEW and UPGRADED version of the StrengthsFinder program, the main selling point of mega-bestseller Now, Discover Your Strengths (over a million copies sold). Access to the new and upgraded StrengthsFinder program will be available exclusively through this book.


Chances are, you don’t. All too often, our natural talents go untapped. From the cradle to the cubicle, we devote more time to fixing our shortcomings than to developing our strengths.

To help people uncover their talents, Gallup introduced the first version of its online assessment, StrengthsFinder, in the 2001 management book Now, Discover Your Strengths. The book spent more than five years on bestseller lists and ignited a global conversation, while StrengthsFinder helped millions discover their top five talents.

In StrengthsFinder 2.0, Gallup unveils the new and improved version of its popular assessment, language of 34 themes and much more. While you can read this book in one sitting, you’ll use it as a reference for decades.

Loaded with hundreds of strategies for applying your strengths, this new book and accompanying website will change the way you look at yourself — and the world around you — forever.

A personalized Strengths Discovery and Action-Planning Guide for applying your strengths in the next week, month and year

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must Read I was given this book by my manager. He gives it to everyone on his team. You have to do a test online first and it will give you your 5 main strenghts and then, you will find out what actions you can take according to those 5 main strenghts. It is very helpful as much in your professional life or personal life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommend The concept of developing and exercising your strengths is so affirming in a culture obsessed with overcoming weaknesses. The book offers very useful applications for each strength too. Makes for a great way to get to know colleagues in a group setting too. #plumreview

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Helpful to get a start on your strengths This is a good way to find an idea of what your strengths are. The book is really just a list of all of the strengths and the real work is online with a code that's in the book. You use the book to reference what the strengths are after. I feel like the book in that way is a tad useless afterwards but if you identify with a different strength it can be useful to see what is available. I wish there was a way to just get the code. I had my husband use this and we had to buy the book, now I have two editions on my bookcase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh... This book was ok. It didnt enlighten me any more to what I already knew from other books and Myers Briggs tests, and it was different than expected. In the end, I could not apply any learning to self improvement. There are better books out there. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best resource I've used all year! This books is one of the most impact full business books I’ve ever come across. Since I read it my personal business focus has not been the same. Strengths Finder is a life-changing questionnaire and the answer to "who am I and what should I do" all wrapped into one resource. The book describes 37 strength "themes" that outline in great detail 37 types of strengths. Natasha’s 4 Favourite Things about the Book: 1. Each book comes with a personalized code that you use to access an online questionnaire. The quiz was thorough and complete and very thought provoking. 2. Each strength theme is amazingly detailed with suggestions for how to best use this particular gifting. I got so much clarity about how to brand myself after reading my top 5 themes. 3. Strength Finder 2.0 is not a personality test – it is a "test" explaining what are your core capabilities. 4. It gives you total emotional freedom because you see in type who you are and just as importantly, who you are not. If you’ve ever asked yourself the question "what am I great at? What should I be doing with my life?" Then this is the book for you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good reference tool the book is really an opener to the website where the core information is. But certainly worth doing the test to see where your true strengths lie.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy and compact This book is a quick and easy read. It guides you to the strengths themes' strengths definitions which is insighful. The book includes a code for internet access to a self assessement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible resource, This book is a must read. As we know more about ourselves and understand our strengths, we are able to excel in every aspect of our lives. "If we know who we ARE, we know who we are not". Working from a place of strength brings confidence and increased productivity. Working with others that compliment our abilities and balance our weaknesses, creates a dynamic team. As a Professional Life Coach, I use "Strengths Finder" as a resource when I work with my clients. It is a valuable tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strengths Finder 2.0 This is an excellent, conccise and amazingly accurate tool that can be very helpful in understanding yourself and others. The underlying premise of understanding and building on your strengths vs. trying to fix your weaknesses is very compelling. I bought it for my two sons, as they strive to define themselves in their careers and make life choices. I also bought it for my management team members to help us understand each other better. I would recommend this book to anyone, at any point in their lives.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great and useful read So many times we focus on trying to improve our weaknesses. Strengths Finder 2.0 helps do the opposite. This book is a quick read coupled with an online tool to help you discover, apply and grow the strengths that are unique to you.
