As a researcher, I am particular when it comes to nonfiction books and want them to be well-grounded and rich with substance. As a coach, I long for the research to translate into practical, usable tips that anyone can apply. And as an avid reader, I love stories that simultaneously entertain and enlighten. With Find Your Strongest Life, Marcus Buckingham satisfied all 3 of these needs!
I first read Find Your Strongest Life shortly after its publication in 2009 and have used it in my work ever since. I often have clients take the Strong Life Test when we first begin working together, and so far nearly all have said the results were spot-on. And, unlike many other assessments, the Strong Life Test (as well as StrengthsFinder and those found in Buckingham's other books) points people in the direction of their *strengths* - qualities that they can leverage and enhance, rather than labels that might limit or inhibit.
Find Your Strongest Life was also an excellent book choice for the professional women's success club that I facilitate. It provides ample discussion points, activities, and "I can relate to that!" stories that kept our group positive and moving forward. We highlighted some of the book's points in fun ways, too - such as bringing sets of juggling balls to the meeting where we discussed "Catch-And-Cradle." The book made it easy to incorporate these types of activities into the group - and made them memorable, too!
One of the greatest takeaways of this resource lies in the "SIGNs" of a strong life. If you feel successful, instinctively look forward to tomorrow, continually grow and learn, and fulfill your needs, chances are you live and work in favor of your strengths. By leaning towards optimism, growth, and the activities that light you up, you can enhance your productivity, increase your sense of purpose, use your time more wisely, and live and work with joyful success. Find Your Strongest Life helps readers do this with authenticity and confidence which, in the long run, serves us all!
