“The more modern view on performance development is that too much time and effort has been spent trying to train people to overcome their weaknesses. This newer thought process suggests that you should maximize people’s strengths to increase performance, not focus on their weaknesses. I love this because not only do you become aware of your own strengths by taking the assessment, you see how this transformational thinking can help you redesign your employee’s job responsibilities so that you maximize their skills. I’ve used this book in the employee onboarding process—I provide a copy of the book and ask that they read it, take the [Strengths Finder] quiz, and share the results so we can review them together in order to set them on a path to success with our company.”
