What We are Reading – 4.1.2012


Strengths Finder 2.0 by Tom Rath

At SlingShot Connections, one of the values we keep in mind is that of legacy. We believe if we nurture talent, and create a culture of training and mentorship, our staff and associates will grow and discover opportunities that utilize their strengths, hopefully increasing their joy and passion for their work along the way.

As the Director of Organizational Development, I work with different teams and personality types daily. “Strength Finders 2.0” helped me to identify my specific themes and helped me to better understand how to best interact with the people I collaborate with daily.

Whether you’re looking for new opportunities that can lead to growth in your career, or you just want to create a better synergy within your team, Tom Rath’s book and corresponding assessment are a great place to start. Not only will you discover what talents and strengths you can bring to the table, but you can also learn how to work well with the strengths of others.

We are always looking for new and exciting things to read, what are some of the best books you have read on Talent Development and Leadership?
