With a research-based approach to effective leadership, “Strengths Based Leadership: Great Leaders, Teams, and Why People Follow” gives readers factual insight into what makes a productive leader.
Building off research on strengths and leadership from Gallup, Inc., authors Tom Rath and Barry Conchie outline three key strategies to leading with more impact – identifying strengths and investing in others’ strengths, pulling the right people with the right strengths into a company or organization, and understanding and fulfilling the basic needs of those who rely on you for leadership.
Rath and Conchie, both senior scientists at Gallup, color their research with anecdotes from noteworthy leaders including the founder of Teach For America and the president of The Ritz-Carlton, who recount ways in which their own strengths have advanced their success.
“Strengths Based Leadership” is available on www.800ceoread.com for $19.96.
