I recommend this book. I agree with its premise: Master your Stengths; Manage your Shortcomings. Love the introductory parable as well as the Nine Principles of Relationships. Practical read. ( )

A bit simplistic in style but the point rings clear and true. The thesis is "focus on strengths, manage weakness." They highlight the benefits of this approach and advocate it across all levels of effort (individual, manager, and organization). In defending this blinders approach, the also argue that strong knowledge in one area enables and integrating point for knowledge in others. Their 5 characteristics of a strength: yearning, satisfaction, rapid leaning (initially and then ongoing learning), glimpses of excellence, and total performance of excellence. They also point out that people with multiple strengths need to pick one and not let their other strengths distract them. Finally, they discuss 4 necessary catalysts: mission, relationships, expectations, and celebration. ( )
