‘Now, Discover Your Strengths’ by Marcus Buckingham & Donald O. Clifton, Ph.D.


‘What are your main strengths and weaknesses?’ – this is a very generic question that some managers ask when interviewing a candidate for a job.

When I was enrolled in the ‘Internship’ course back in university, we had to prepare ourselves to answer this question during any possible future interviews when we graduated. In a comprehensive study of over 2 million people’s main strengths from different industries and professions, the writers in this book have reduced over 100 common strengths and put together a concise set of 34 strengths that distinguish success in management.

Wouldn’t you want to know what your strengths are as a result of such in-depth study? When you buy this book, there is a unique identification code that you can use to go to the publisher’s website on http://www.StrengthsFinder.com and discover your five core strengths. There is about 100 random questions that need to be answered within a timeline of 20-seconds per question before the results of your core strengths are generated.
