Strengths-Based Leadership: Great Leaders, Teams, and Why People Follow Them: by Tom Rath and Barry Conchie.
Strengths-based leadership is a management style focused on recognizing and leveraging individual strengths to achieve organizational goals. It emphasizes the positive aspects of employees, such as their skills, knowledge, and experience, rather than trying to “fix” their deficits.
Written by Tom Rath and Barry Conchie, Strengths-Based Leadership: Great Leaders, Teams, and Why People Follow Them identifies three strategies to become a more successful leader: 1) know your strengths and invest in your team’s strengths, 2) get the right people with the right strengths on your team, and 3) understand the basic needs of your team. Gallup Clifton StrengthsFinder is an excellent place to begin identifying your strengths and those of your team.
