Strengths Finder

Author: Tom Rath
Finished: August 16, 2090
Pages: 175
Published: 2007

Recommended by my new boss to read. The whole idea is that we spend too much time focusing on strengthening out weaknesses and not enough time continuing to grow in our strengths.

The first 30 pages are an introduction that leads you to taking an online evaluation that then tells you what your top 5 strengths are.

It was an awesome book to read, especially when trying to figure out a new career or if you’re unhappy in your current situation because it helps your focus on what you’re really good at, and then how to continue to strengthen those areas.
