Do you have the opportunity to do what you do best every day? Chances are, you don't. All too often, our natural talents go untapped. From the cradle to the cubicle, we devote more time to fixing our shortcomings than developing our strengths.

To help people uncover their talents, Gallup introduced the first version of its online assessment, StrengthsFinder, in 2001, which ignited a global conversation and helped millions to discover their top five talents.

In its latest national bestseller, StrengthsFinder 2.0, Gallup unveils the new and improved version of its popular assessment, the language of 34 themes, and much more (see below for details). While you can read this book in one sitting, you'll use it as a reference for decades.

Loaded with hundreds of strategies for applying your strengths, this new book and accompanying website will change the way you look at yourself--and the world around you--forever.

Focus on Your Strengths

StrengthsFinder 2.0 by Tom Rath encourages us to shift our focus from our weaknesses to our strengths. Instead of spending time trying to improve areas where we're lacking, we should invest more in what we're naturally good at. This way, we can achieve more and feel more fulfilled.

Identify Your Unique Strengths

The book provides an online assessment tool that helps you identify your top five strengths. It's a great way to dig into your unique abilities and understand how you can use them to your advantage. You might be surprised by what you find!

Understand How to Apply Your Strengths

Knowing your strengths is one thing, but understanding how to apply them is another. Tom Rath provides practical advice and strategies on how to use your strengths in your daily life, whether it's at work, in relationships, or personal projects.

Strengths Can Be Developed

Rath emphasizes that strengths are not fixed traits. They can be developed and honed over time. So, don't worry if you feel like you're not 'strong' in certain areas right now. With focus and effort, you can grow and improve.

Strengths Lead to Success and Satisfaction

The book explores the idea that using your strengths can lead to greater success and satisfaction in all areas of life. When you're doing what you're naturally good at, you're likely to be more engaged, productive, and happy. So, take a look at StrengthsFinder 2.0 and start your journey to a more fulfilling life.
