Marcus Buckingham: What are your strengths?

In this clip Marcus Buckingham argues that your strengths aren't necessarily what you are good at. They are what you enjoy doing - activities that sustain and fulfil you. This confirms for me a strand of Buckingham's work that I don't actually like: self-indulgence. Of late, his work has been more about the self and part of the self improvement, self fulfillment, personal development agenda, than it has been about corporate improvement.

The Problem with Marcus Buckingham: What do you think?

I have a lot of time for Marcus Buckingham. But, I think there is a BIG problem with how he and Gallup (the company on whose research work and ideas he bases his own work) have been interpreted. I just splurged it out in reply to a comment by Rob designed to improve the Hub self-assessment test, over in the Assessment Area of The Hub. That was the wrong place to put it.
