Format: Hardcover
Are you on the right track? Do you wonder about why you love doing certain things and dislike others? Do you wonder why you react in certain ways? Are your looking for a better way to make right decisions, enjoy peace of mind, and live in harmony with others. This may be the book for you.

The Catholic edition of "Living Your Strengths" is an extension of "strengths" research begun more than forty years ago by Dr. Donald Clifton of the Gallup Organization. Clifton researched the natural patterns of thought, feeling, and action of two million people in more than 25 countries. The result is the Clifton StrengthsFinder, a tool that reveals a person's top five themes of talent - one's Signature Themes.

The Signature Themes are unique to the individual. According to Gallup, the chance of finding someone with your Signature Themes, in the same order, is 1 in 33 million and the chance of finding someone with your top ten themes of talent is 1 in 3 trillion. Finding one's themes and understanding their uniqueness should help one to gain a better appreciation of how special they are and how special the people around them are - deeper self-respect, deeper mutual respect.

The book is organized around the use of the StrengthsFinder (provided with the purchase of the book) to assess and affirm our talents, and how to use our talents for growth and service. There are thirty four identified talents ranging from achiever, maximizer, ideation, individualization, and significance to woo.

This edition of "Living Your Strengths" is aimed at Catholic parishes and parishioners and incorporates language familiar to Catholic audiences.

Well I'm not sure if it was written in the book description or not, but the web-based assessment that this book is tied to, requires the purchase of a NEW book. Once the code is used to register at the website it is void, and codes cannot be purchased independently. Anyone buying this book used is not getting the complete purchase and unless you purchase another product allowing you access, a used book is relatively uninspired. Oh well, lesson learned.

The book is awesome but there was no warning that the Clifton Strength Finder Assessment was already used. If I had known, I would have bought a new book instead. The whole point of the book is to discover your strengths through this assessment. It makes having the book pretty useless if you bought it for that reason.

I happened on this book by accident. I had been reading a number of leadership/management books, which all referred to First, Break All the Rules: What the World's Greatest Managers Do Differently. I had never heard of the book. I was also very reluctant to buy the book. The title just did not sit right with me. I sounded like a course in insubordination, rebelliousness or something. Nevertheless, my curiosity got the best of me.

I broke down. The book was excellent. So were the number of books published in its wake: StrengthsFinder 2.0, Now, Discover Your Strengths, Go Put Your Strengths to Work: 6 Powerful Steps to Achieve Outstanding Performance, and StandOut: The Groundbreaking New Strengths Assessment from the Leader of the Strengths Revolution (which I have not yet read, but I'm sure comes from the same mold). It talked about the four keys of great managers: selecting people for talents or "recurring patterns of behavior;" defining the right outcomes by turning talents into performance; focusing on strengths and not on weaknesses; and, finding the right fit to give people the greatest chance for success.

This book details the specific elements and behaviors of several personality types. I is written in an easy to read format, headings for the different personality types are clear. The types are based on positive psychology. The reader is given options to maximize ones own talents and suggestions on how to approach other personality types in conflict resoloution. This is not a "read through" type of book. It is the type of book that needs to be read, then portions thought about and applied to ones behavior. The result is an increased effectiveness in dealing with others and minimizing ones own annoying or intimidating behavior in interpersonal communication. My husband and I each bought a book and took the questionaire, the results were accurate and excellent revelation and discussion points for how we approached situations differently with our preferred strategies.
