Data-driven research has gained our attention again with Strengths Based Leadership by Tom Rath and Barry Conchie. Strengths Based Leadership takes Gallup’s StrengthsFinder assessment, which we also recommend, and focuses attention on leading and following from many different points of view. Insights on what people are looking for from leaders and how we, as leaders, can make a more focused effort to lead others in an intentional, individually effective way are on point, relevant, and applicable. In our ongoing effort to become better at what we do, StrengthsFinder and Strengths Based Leadership are accessible, real influencers. Strengths Based Leadership is widely available in print and reader formats. Learn more at http://strengths.gallup.com/110242/default.aspx .
