StrengthsFinder 2.0 is a book by author, researcher, and speaker Tom Rath. The book is a guide that helps listeners identify their natural talents so that they might develop their strengths in order to do their best each day.
Modern society often concentrates on people's weaknesses. When a student struggles on a particular subject, he or she spends more time on that subject than on ones in which he or she excels. This is also true in entertainment. There are many movies that focus on underdogs, characters who have to fight to achieve success rather than developing their natural talents. Even modern language is more focused on weakness than strength. There are more ways to describe what is wrong with a person than there are words meant to praise and encourage.
Research shows that modern workers rarely find pleasure in their careers. A poll of workers revealed that the cause of their unhappiness is too much focus on their weaknesses and not enough support of their strengths....

Really great way to find your purpose and strengths. I think it should be mandatory for everyone to check this out. Especially people looking for a career switch or just getting out of high school or college. Life changing way to look at who you are and what you enjoy and do well. This is a really well done program and the summary guide is perfect for those looking to pick up on the main ideas quickly and get the most out of it right away. I would highly recommend this.
This review captures the essence of the book concisely and perfectly. Its incredible to think that a quick read like this can impact my future in such a profound way. This review of "StrengthsFinder 2.0" by Tom Rath boils down the self-help book into 11 key takeaways and provides analysis and insight into each one.
The book is about finding what you are successful at and learning to pursue it, instead of what is easy or comfortable. We are too quick to find the conservative, safe route in our careers that we forget that we all have talents and abilities that are uniquely ours. When we tap into those resources, we are happier and feel accomplished. When we don't, we dread Mondays and hate our work.
This review is great for anyone who is questioning their career path, or what they're studying in school, or just needs help finding fulfillment. If you're contemplating the color of your parachute, give this book a try first, and see what you learn.
Due to a recent mandatory seminar at my work, I developed a keen appreciation for the power that Strengthsfinder has had on employers and HR representatives in the workforce. I recently purchased this summary and analysis to complement the book so that I could condense down what is being taught and utilize it in the workplace in a more concise and easy to understand format. Due to the key takeaways and their highly developed analysis, I’ve now been able to do exactly as I have planned. Each and every analysis provides me a direct understanding of what the author advocates; something that I carry over into a professional worksheet with key points for employees to read and understand. Now that I’ve been able to provide this information so effectively I look forward to the impact that the training will have on the workforce. It’s definitely something that has been a long time coming. With this companion to the primary book I’ve no doubt that my business will...
