StandOut 2.0 by Summary

The Groundbreaking Strengths Assessment from the Leader of the Strengths Revolution In the years since the publication of First, Break All the Rules and Now, Discover Your Strengths, millions have come to the simple but powerful realization that to get the most out of people, you must build on their strengths. And yet, as Marcus Buckingham astutely points out, though the strengths-based approach is now conventional wisdom, the tools and systems inside organizations—performance appraisals, training programs, and succession planning systems—remain stubbornly remedial and exclusively focused on measuring skills, finding gaps, and attempting to plug them. It’s a crisis for individuals and organizations, with management ideas and everyday practice utterly out of sync. That’s about to change. StandOut 2.0 is a revolutionary book and tool that enables you to identify your strengths, and those of your team, and act on them.

The Man Who Mistook His Job for His Life by Naomi Shragai Summary

A revolutionary approach to understanding the emotional dynamics within our working lives. 'Nobody understands the everyday madness of working life better than Naomi Shragai. This book should be read by everyone who ventures anywhere near an office' - Lucy Kellaway You probably don't realise this, but every working day you replay and re-enact conflicts, dynamics and relationships from your past. Whether it's confusing an authority figure with a parent; avoiding conflict because of past squabbles with siblings; or suffering from imposter syndrome because of the way your family responded to success, when it comes to work we are all trapped in our own upbringings and the patterns of behaviour we learned while growing up. Many of us spend eighteen formative years or more living with family and building our personality; but most of us also spend fifty years - or 90,000 hours - in the workplace. With the pull of the familial so strong, we unconsciously re-enact our personal past in our professional present - even when it holds us back. Through intimate stories, fascinating insights and provocative questions that tackle the issues that cause us most problems - from imposter syndrome and fear of conflict to perfectionism and anxiety - business psychotherapist Naomi Shragai will transform how you think about yourself and your working life. Based on thirty years of expertise and practice, Shragai will show you that what is holding you back is within your gift to change - and the first step is to realise how you, like the rest of the people you work with, habitually confuse your professional present with your personal past.

The Right-and Wrong-Stuff by Carter Cast Summary

"Warning: Your career might be in danger of going off the rails. You probably have blind spots that are leaving you closer to the edge than you realize. Fortunately, Carter Cast has the solution. In this smart, engaging book he shows you how to avoid career derailment by becoming more self-aware, more agile, and more effective. This is the book you wish you had twenty years ago, which is why you should read it now." -- Daniel H. Pink, New York Times bestselling author of Drive and To Sell Is Human The Right -- and Wrong -- Stuff is a candid, unvarnished guide to the bumpy road to success. The shocking truth is that 98 percent of us have at least one career-derailment risk factor, and half to two-thirds actually go off the rails. And the reason why people get fired, demoted, or plateau is because they let the wrong stuff act out, not because they lack talent, energy, experience, or credentials. Carter Cast himself had all the right stuff for a brilliant career, when he was called into his boss's office and berated for being obstinate, resistant, and insubordinate. That defining moment led to a years-long effort to understand why he came so close to getting fired, and what it takes to build a successful career. His wide range of experiences as a rising, falling, and then rising star again at PepsiCo, an entrepreneur, the CEO of, and now a professor and venture capitalist enables him to identify the five archetypes found in every workplace. You'll recognize people you work with (maybe even yourself) in Captain Fantastic, the Solo Flyer, Version 1.0, the One-Trick Pony, and the Whirling Dervish, and, thanks to Cast's insights, they won't be able to trip up your future.

The End of Average by Todd Rose Summary

In this ground-breaking book perfect for readers of The Power of Habit and Quiet, Harvard scientist Todd Rose shows how our one-size-fits-all world is actually one-size-fits-none. Each of us knows we’re different. We’re a little taller or shorter than the average, our salary is a bit higher or lower than the average, and we wonder about who it is that is buying the average-priced home. All around us, we think, are the average people—with the average height, the average salary and the average house. But the average doesn’t just influence how we see ourselves—our entire social system has been built around this average-size-fits-all model. Schools are designed for the average student. Healthcare is designed for the average patient. Employers try to fill average job descriptions with employees on an average career trajectory. Our government implements programs and initiatives to serve the average person. For more than a century, we’ve believed that the best way to run our institutions is by focusing on the average person. But when you actually drill down into the numbers, you find an amazing fact: no one is average—which means that our society built for everyone is actually serving no one. In the 1950s, the American Air Force found itself with a massive problem—performance in expensive, custom-made planes was suffering terribly, with crashes peaking at seventeen in a single day. Since the state-of-the-art planes they were flying had been meticulously crafted to fit the average pilot, pilot error was assumed to be at fault. Until, that is, the Air Force investigated just how many of their pilots were actually average. The shocking answer: out of thousands of active-duty ?pilots, exactly zero were average. Not one. This discovery led to simple solutions (like adjustable seats) that dramatically reduced accidents, improved performance, and expanded the pool of potential pilots. It also led to a huge change in thinking: planes didn’t need to be designed for everyone—they needed to be designed so they could adapt to suit the individual flying them. The End of Average shows how success lies in customizing to our individual needs in all aspects of our lives, from the way we mark tests to the medical treatment we receive. Using principles from The Science of the Individual, it shows how we can break down the average to create individualized success that benefits everyone in the long run. It's time we stopped settling for average, and in The End of Average, Todd Rose will show you how.

The Tipping Point: by Malcolm Gladwell | Summary & Analysis by Elite Summaries Summary

Author Malcolm Gladwell explores the idea of ideas and how they catch fire in his novel, The Tipping Point. He contests that thoughts and ideas spread in much the same way illness spreads, usually to much better effect: a little exposure goes a long way. He presents the spread of ideas as a sort of epidemic, and perhaps his novel is proof of that. Since its release in 2002, The Tipping Point has become a national bestseller. This edition includes a new afterword by the author. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 10.0px 0.0px; text-align: justify; font: 11.0px 'Trebuchet MS'; color: #000000; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} How do ideas go from horribly unpopular to the latest trend so quickly? Malcolm Gladwell dives into the subjects of fashion, children's shows and even cigarettes in a search for the answer. It's a book that will stop and make you think about how these ideas apply within the context of daily life, marketing, and a whole host of other subjects. Gladwell leads us on a sociological expedition into the mentality and behavior that drives societal trends. Sociology students and readers just looking for a good book-and basically anyone in between- will find The Tipping Point highly enjoyable. It is peppered with anecdotes that carry along the scientific ideas quite nicely, making for a quick and interesting read. Gladwell's insight in The Tipping Point has been used in marketing and advertising strategies by many companies, but it's written in just such a way that keeps the content from even approaching dryness. If you enjoy science but hate the feeling of chewing through a research paper, The Tipping Point is absolutely the book for you.

Summary, Analysis & Review of Tom Rath’s StrengthsFinder 2.0 by Eureka Preview: StrengthsFinder 2.0 is a book by author, researcher, and speaker Tom Rath. The book is a guide to help readers identify their natural talents so that they might develop their strengths in order to do their best each day. Modern society often concentrates on people’s weaknesses. When a student struggles on a particular subject, they spend more time on that subject than on one in which they excel. This is also true in entertainment. There are many movies that focus on underdogs, characters who have to fight to achieve success rather than developing their natural talents. Even modern language is more focused on weakness than strength. There are more ways to describe what is wrong with a person than there are words meant to praise and encourage. Research shows that modern workers rarely find pleasure in their careers. A poll of workers revealed that the cause of their unhappiness is too much focus by their supervisors on their weaknesses and not enough support of their strengths… This companion to StrengthsFinder 2.0 includes: Overview of the book Important People Key Takeaways Analysis of Key Takeaways and much more!

Positive Education and Work by Sanna Hyvärinen,Tanja Äärelä,Satu Uusiautti Summary

What is the meaning of positive education and work? What are the pedagogical premises of well-being? What about the foundations of flourishing at work? Is this knowledge enough for a holistic picture, or is there still a need for some special perspectives of well-being? This volume is based on the positive psychological research approaches implemented in various research settings that cover the whole lifespan. It critically discusses the idea of positive education and work and their connection to life-long positive development and flourishing from multiple perspectives. It can serve broadly as a textbook or course literature for education and work-related research studies. It is research-based, and will appeal to educators and researchers in many disciplines, such as the social sciences, social work, educational administration, and leadership, although it will also be of interest to anyone with an interest in positive psychology.

Actions Speak Louder by Deanna Singh Summary

"A timely, practical resource on creating teams and organizations where everyone has the opportunity to succeed." --Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and host of the podcast WorkLife A step-by-step guide for managers, teams, and DEI leaders looking to create impactful, lasting change in their organization, from recruitment to retention, and beyond. Are you tired of hollow promises about diversity, equity, and inclusion in your organization? Do you want to take steps towards real change – beyond issuing mission statements, signing checks, and holding listening sessions – but don’t know where to start? This book is your answer. Designed for teams to read together, Actions Speak Louder offers a comprehensive blueprint for leaders and teams who are ready to get out of their own way, look at their surroundings with new eyes, and turn their energy into a concrete plan. Renowned DEI consultant Deanna Singh has led diversity trainings for a wide range of organizations, from non-profits to Fortune 500 companies. Using narratives, case studies, and the latest DEI research, as well as interactive exercises, Singh will teach you how to: • Write inclusive job advertisements because “minorities just don’t apply here” isn’t an excuse – you’re just not reaching them • Design an interview process that reduces status quo bias and challenges hiring decisions that are simply “no brainers” • Create a retention plan that considers and prioritizes the needs of underrepresented employees – if you haven’t intentionally designed one to be inclusive, you’ve unintentionally reinforced one that is exclusive. • Lead inclusive meetings – the bedrock of company culture – by practicing constructive dissent and elevating underrepresented perspectives As Singh has seen time and time again, any organization can meaningfully change – you just need the right tools.

The Holy Hand Grenade by Thomas J. Gilroy Summary

Have you been thwarted in your quest to find your life’s passion? Has something or someone (maybe even yourself) blocked you from discovering: who you really are? your gift? what you seek? Then you need The Holy Hand Grenade. Napoleon Hill said, “Desire is the starting point of all achievement.” Solomon said, “Hope deferred makes the heart grow sick, but desire fulfilled is a tree of life.” Yet many people go through life with no real hope, desire, or passion and have hearts that are sick. It doesn't have to be that way. Jesus said, “I came that you may have life, and have it abundantly.” Don’t you want an abundant life? Many books have tackled different aspects of who you are, what your gift is, and what you seek, but none has really covered them completely enough to help you ... until now! The Holy Hand Grenade is not just good information, but real answers and applications for what you really want, REALLY! If desire, passion, and purpose are what you need, then The Holy Hand Grenade belongs in your arsenal.

Hidden Strengths by Thuy Sindell,Milo Sindell Summary

“For workers who are interested in developing skills to further their career goals . . . an eye-opening look at how we use and develop our skills.” —IT Business Edge Books like StrengthsFinder 2.0 have helped leaders discover their strengths—but they stop there. The Sindells argue that focusing only on your best abilities neglects a vital development opportunity. They show how to identify hidden strengths that can be quickly elevated into full strengths with attention and focus. Working mainly on your strengths can ultimately make you weaker, they argue—you need to continually add new skills, not rely on what you’re already good at. And while most people assume that means they should try to turn their weaknesses into usable skills, the Sindells say that it takes too much time and effort —the ROI just isn’t there. It’s in the neglected middle skills, neither strengths nor weaknesses, that the most potent development opportunities lie. They’re close enough to being strengths that putting your energy there can offer a powerful payoff. Using assessments, exercises, and case studies, the Sindells help you identify your most promising middle skills and create a plan to turn them into strengths. In today’s work environment, not growing and stretching yourself translates into lack of innovation, stagnation, and obsolescence. Relying upon strengths is like relying upon training wheels—at a certain point you need to take them off in order to improve and grow. “Tackl[es] the question of why it’s so tempting to focus on extremes—our strengths and weaknesses—while overlooking our capacity in the middle: our hidden strengths.” —Bill McLawhon, Head of Leadership Development, Facebook
