About the Webcast Leader:
Marcus Buckingham has been described by such diverse sources as Fortune magazine and Oprah Winfrey as a "strengths management guru” and the "leader of the strengths revolution.” Buckingham is the world’s foremost authority on helping people to engage the best of themselves in their work. He spent 17 years with the Gallup Organization analyzing what makes companies, managers and workers excel, and he continues to spread the message about personal strengths through his bestselling books and his strengths-based training organization, TMBC.
Challenging accepted and entrenched social theory, Buckingham pioneered a revolutionary concept: that people will be dramatically more effective, successful and fulfilled when they play to their strongest skills rather than attempting to improve their weaknesses. He calls his research-based technique the "strengths revolution,” and his work has been proven again and again in boardrooms, seminars and individuals’ lives around the world.
Buckingham’s latest book, Find Your Strongest Life: What the Happiest and Most Successful Women Do Differently, will be released in September 2009 by Thomas Nelson. His previous books include: First, Break All the Rules (coauthored with Curt Coffman, 1999); Now, Discover Your Strengths (coauthored with Donald O. Clifton, 2001); The One Thing You Need to Know (2005); Go Put Your Strengths To Work (2007); and The Truth About You: Your Secret to Success (2008). More than 3.7 million copies of his books are in print.
A member of the Secretary of State’s Advisory Committee on Leadership and Management, Buckingham graduated from Cambridge University with a master’s degree in social and political science.
