Item Description...
Outlines a six-step, six-week process through which employees can make the most of their assets while rewriting their job descriptions, in a guide that explains how to determine one's strengths, promote oneself without bragging, and maintain a focused career path. By the author of First Break All the Rules. 250,000 first printing.

Publishers Description
Beginning with the million-copy bestsellers First, Break All the Rules and Now, Discover Your Strengths, Marcus Buckingham jump-started the strengths movement that is now sweeping the work world, from business to government to education. Now that the movement is in full swing, Buckingham's new book answers the ultimate question: How can you actually apply your strengths for maximum success at work?

Research data show that most people do not come close to making full use of their assets at work -- in fact, only 17 percent of the workforce believe they use all of their strengths on the job. Go Put Your Strengths to Work aims to change that through a six-step, six-week experience that will reveal the hidden dimensions of your strengths. Buckingham shows you how to seize control of your assets and rewrite your job description under the nose of your boss. You will learn:

• Why your strengths aren't "what you are good at" and your weaknesses aren't "what you are bad at."

• How to use the four telltale signs to identify your strengths.

• The simple steps you can take each week to push your time at work toward those activities that strengthen you and away from those that don't.

• How to talk to your boss and your colleagues about your strengths without sounding like you're bragging and about your weaknesses without sounding like you're whining.

• The fifteen-minute weekly ritual that will keep you on your strengths path your entire career.

With structured exercises that will become part of your regular workweek and proven tactics from people who have successfully applied the book's lessons, Go Put Your Strengths to Work will arm you with a radically different approach to your work life. As part of the book's program you'll take an online Strengths Engagement Track, a focused and powerful gauge that has proven to be the best way to measure the level of engagement of your strengths or your team's strengths. You can also download the first two segments of the renowned companion film series Trombone Player Wanted.

Go Put Your Strengths to Work will open up exciting uncharted territory for you and your organization. Join the strengths movement and thrive.

Fantastic book  Apr 13, 2010
This is a fantastic book for taking practical steps toward putting your strengths to work. I would also recommend "Strengths Finder 2.0" as a companion book. The two books really complement each other even though they have different authors.
Go Put Your Strengths to Work!  Mar 15, 2010
A great addition to the Strengths Finder 2.0 process. Our entire team is engaged in learning more about themselves and each other. Money well spent!
Causion - [...] dollar value version missing StrengthFinders access code.  Feb 27, 2010
This report is about the physical condition of the twelve dollar version. The book text is just fine. It is missing a critical portion of the material. Otherwise it is an excellent product to which I would give a four or five star rating.

Each copy of the hardcover version in the "Strengths" series, authored by Marcus Buckingham, includes a single use access to the "" evaluation. An access code is required for perform the evaluation. This access code is printed on the reverse side of the paper jacket that covers the hardcover binding. In the twelve dollar value version this access code is missing. Therefore, the reader will not be able to undergo the evaluation portion of the material.
In fairness, this site does say that the twelve dollar version is a value version and there is a statement that a value version may contain some minor flaws that do not affect the content of the book. In the past I have always found this to be a true statement, so I believe the missing code is just an honest oopps.

However, if the code is missing from the paper jacket, then the book is not complete. And the way the price is marked, that is, $30.00 slashed to $[...] leads one to believe it is a full printing.

The day before placing this order, I ordered a separate copy of the book priced from $30.00 down to $17.00 give one to a friend. Both copies arrived on the same day allowing a comparison of the Value copy to a properly printed copy.
The value copy has the following differences:
- The book is physically smaller, a half inch narrower, an inch shorter
- The inks are duller
- The font type is slightly smaller
- The paper grade is slightly lower
- The access code is missing from the inside of the paper jacker

Otherwise it appears to be the same book.

If you have already taken the StrengthFinders evaluation and don't care about the code there are situations for which the slightly smaller size can be an advantage, for example for someone who travels a lot and likes to read while in transit.

This being said I am a big fan of the Marcus Buckingham books and would give it a rating of four or five stars otherwise.
Thought Provoking Step by Step Guide  Feb 21, 2010
I have been using this book for about a year as the basis of a workshop for small groups of employees. I think the group approach provides much needed support and feedback as well as the peer pressure to stick with it. The results have run the spectrum from some people realizing why their role is such a perfect fit for them, to others thinking about what they'd like to do more of in their roles, to others leaving the organization to pursue work that will engage them more. Without a doubt, the most difficult aspect continues to be developing the skills and courage to have conversations with their supervisors about how they could contribute more if they were allowed to put their strengths to work. This will require more sessions with supervisors around Buckingham's book First Break All the Rules!
Helpful advice  Nov 3, 2009
I found this book to be a very comprehensive and practical guide. It is just what I am looking for. bmw
