Work Your Strengths
IN THIS SUMMARY
In Work Your Strengths, Chuck Martin, Richard Guare, and Peg Dawson have explored this concept of position and personality, and created a set of “executive skills.” This set of skills is found throughout the business world, and defines many different types of leaders in every industry. Some skills are a result of habit, while others are a result of brain chemistry. Leaders are not proficient in all skills, but some skills define certain positions more than others. By studying what skills they are proficient in themselves, employees can narrow down what jobs are the best fit and most fulfilling. The result is a smoother-functioning workplace where leaders understand their strengths and are not afraid to switch to positions where they will be more efficient.
