Even savvy organizations can make big mistakes, like expending precious resources of time, money, and energy to repair a leader's weaknesses, only to achieve…mediocrity. No leader achieves greatness by fixing a weakness; strengths lead to excellence.

Based on their combined 50 years consulting to corporations, the authors turn the ineffective and misguided "weakness" paradigm topsy-turvy and build a compelling argument for boosting strengths in all leaders. When leaders leverage their strengths, they are enormously successful and incite engaged, productive, and successful employees.

Leaders and managers–whose plates are already overflowing with priorities, rising expectations, and critical problems–are neither inspired nor motivated to overcome weaknesses, especially when the payoff is negligible. Play to Your Strengths urges leaders to discover, engage, and leverage strengths–in themselves and others–to achieve spectacular results.

This is the first book providing hands-on, practical tools to identify and amplify strengths to improve engagement, high performance, and satisfaction. This new system for developing leadership capacity builds self-esteem as it assists organizations in creating employee-development strategies that really work. Play to Your Strengths will captivate leaders and managers who crave stellar performance and fascinate anyone who brings passion, fervor, and a desire for excellence to his or her leadership, whether in a Fortune 100 giant or a small start-up. The reality is that we already possess strengths; we just need to play to them!
