About the Book 

Do you have the opportunity to do what you do best every day? Chances are, you don’t. Frequently our natural talents go untapped. We tend to devote more time to fixing our shortcomings than to developing our strengths. To help people uncover their talents, Gallup introduced the StrengthsFinder assessment which has helped millions of people discover their top five talents. In the 2.0 version of the book, Gallup unveils an upgraded StrengthsFinder assessment, a personalized Strengths Discovery and Action Planning Guide, a customized top five theme report (of 34 possible themes) and 50 ideas for action.

Completing the CliftonStrengths online talent assessment is your way to:

  1.      Discover what you naturally do best.
  2.      Learn how to develop your greatest talents.
  3.      Use your customized results to live your best life.

You may read this book in one sitting, but you’ll use it as a reference for decades. Loaded with hundreds of strategies for applying your strengths, this book and assessment will change the way you look at yourself, and the world around you, forever.

The book is available at several retailers. IMPORTANT: Due to the unique CliftonStrengths Access Code provided with each book, we encourage everyone to purchase this book new. The following retailers offer the book at reasonable prices:
