Marcus Buckingham Speaker

New York Times Bestselling Author, Researcher and Motivational Speaker

Marcus Buckingham Speaker Profile

Marcus Buckingham, author of several strengths-focused books including Go Put Your Strengths to Work, spoke primarily about the progress (and non-progress) of strengths in the business place over the past decade. Buckingham started with the story of how he is different from his brother and sister in personality, and he became aware of that as a boy. He continued saying that these differences magnify over time. There are certain traits and behaviors that are your strengths.

Buckingham then talked about enjoying studying the positive outliers such as the store that outperforms, to learn what it is doing. There was a collective sigh of recognition from the audience when Buckingham unveiled the one question found by Gallup to most predict job satisfaction: At work, do you have the opportunity to do what you do best everyday?

Despite this question being the number one predictor, people in surveys around the world, when asked What do you think will help you be most successful? still say that fixing weaknesses (57) is more important than building strengths (41 worldwide in 2000).

Buckingham drew to a close by clarifying that the phrase should not be, People are our greatest asset, but that its peoples strengths where they shine that matters, and that the phrase really needs to be, Peoples strengths are our greatest assets.

And he gave two major recommendations to people for using their strengths more. One, as a boss, to challenge subordinates to use their strengths even more and in new ways, as we learned when Buckingham interacted with an audience member and pretended to be her boss by asking her to use her strengths even more. Two, to each week be pushing ourselves and to be deliberate about using our strengths even more.
