Find Your Strongest Life by Marcus Buckingham
I have read some of Marcus Buckingham’s other books and was excited to get a chance to review this one. The ideas in the book help women to marry their professional and personal lives so they can have it all. In recent years women have been able to accomplish more in their professional lives but are not happier than women in earlier decades.
Access to a strength test website is included in the book. You take a 20 question multiple choice test to see what your top 2 strengths are. Then there are descriptions of each of the roles along with suggestions of how to make the most of your Lead and Supporting roles.
Another chapter deals with how to accept what you find from taking the test. If you accept what you find doesn’t mean Another chapter deals with how to accept what you find from taking the test. If you accept what you find doesn’t mean you have to settle for a lesser life.
The final part of the book deals with Strong life tactics. How to apply what you learned about your strengths to different areas of your life, career, relationships and your kids.
The book was an easy read, was informative and I am sure I will be returning to it for ideas several times in the future. I recommend reading this book to find out what your strengths are and how to apply them to both your professional and personal lives.
