The One Thing You Need to Know
IN THIS SUMMARY
In his first best seller, First, Break All the Rules, Buckingham, breaking with conventional wisdom, offered managers valuable guidelines on how to avoid the mistake of coercing their employees into overcoming their weaknesses (which only serves to cripple their potential) and instead, show them how to reach top-level performance by helping them use their strengths.
Now, Discover Your Strengths continued this “strength revolution” by providing a provocative course in how to determine individual strengths and talents and leverage them for personal development, management effectiveness, and organizational success.
The One Thing You Need to Know expands on this theme of leveraging one’s strengths and gives business people a fundamental course in outstanding achievement and focuses in on the single controlling insight that lies at the heart of great managing, great leading, and career success.
