I've been reading through Marcus Buckingham's new book titled The Truth About You: Your Secret To Success.
The book is a nice follow up to other Buckingham strengths-based books like.......
- Now, Discover Your Strengths
- Go, Put Your Strengths To Work
The book is actually more of a toolkit. The toolkit includes.......
1 // Enhanced DVD
From The Back Cover: A high-energy film reveals how and why you must discover and prioritize your strengths. It includes five bonus Strength Tip videos and access to a wealth of downloadable resources.
My Take: The film is great. Well made. The story of a young trombone player plays out while Marcus Buckingham effectively explains the strengths-based approach described in the book.
2 // Interactive Book
From The Back Cover: With insightful exercises and tried-and-true life wisdom no one else will tell you, the book takes you to the location of your most powerful and unchanging talents.
My Take: I was surprised by the shortness of the book. Not necessarily a bad thing. I breezed through the book in about 30 minutes. I would recommend taking the time to work through the exercises that Buckingham teaches in the book. The exercises will help you identify and document your Strengths and Weaknesses or, more specifically, your I feel strong when.... and I feel weak when.... statements.
3 // ReMemo Pad
From The Back Cover: Designed for a life on-the-go, the ReMemo Pad becomes your companion to complete the task of revealing your strengths using everyday experiences.
My Take: The ReMemo Pad is nothing more than a plain memo pad designed to help you jot down activities that make you feel strong or make you feel weak. But it is a nice addition to the toolkit because making note of your daily and weekly activities and how they make you feel is the first step to identifying your true strengths and weaknesses.
