10 Years of Strengths

10 Years of Strengths

Marcus Buckingham is a global researcher and thought leader focused on unlocking strengths, increasing performance, and pioneering the future of how people work. He is the author of two of the bestselling business books of all time, has two of Harvard Business Review’s most circulated, industry-changing cover articles, and his strengths assessments have been taken by over 10 million people worldwide.

Building on nearly two decades of experience as a Senior Researcher at Gallup Organization, he currently guides the vision of the ADP Research Institute as Head of People + Performance research. He founded The Marcus Buckingham Company in 2006 with a clear mission: to instigate a “strengths revolution.” It started, as all revolutions do, with the simplest of ideas: that when people spend the majority of each day on the job using their greatest talents and engaged in their favorite tasks, doing exactly what they want to do, both they and their organizations will win.

In other words, companies that focus on cultivating employees’ strengths rather than simply improving on people’s weaknesses stand to dramatically increase efficiency and productivity while allowing for maximum personal growth.

In all of his speeches, Marcus demonstrates the correlation between strengths-driven, engaged employees and business fundamentals such as turnover rates, customer satisfaction, profits, and productivity. Challenging entrenched preconceptions about achievement to get to the core of what drives success, Marcus’s strengths-based approach is a win/win scenario that, without exaggeration, will define the future of work.

Virtual Programming: If you lead people in these new realities, Marcus Buckingham says every team should do these 5 things

In this dynamic virtual presentation MARCUS BUCKINGHAM helps leaders focus on what’s most important for their team right now. In his talk, If You Lead People Today, Do These 5 Things, Marcus walks teams through what they can do to make their virtual teams the most effective and productive teams possible, even--and especially--during these new realities. Using his two decades of experience as a Senior Researcher at the Gallup Organization and currently, the Head of ADP Research Institute of People and Performance, Marcus’ revolutionary framework for understanding teams combines visionary thinking backed by rigorous research. His work on leveraging the strength of teams and productivity has been memorialized in numerous bestselling books, such as: First, Break All the Rules; Now, Discover Your Strengths; The One Thing You Need to Know; Go Put Your Strengths To Work; The Truth About You; Find Your Strongest Life; StandOut 2.0; and Nine Lies About Work: A Freethinking Leader’s Guide to the Real World.

Sponsors rave: "Marcus Buckingham was GREAT! I got a lot of positive feedback from all our company's participants!" (Masterfoods) "Marcus is the most engaging and useful business speaker working today. His advice is grounded in research and at the same time appeals to common sense." (The Wharton School) "Our managers ranked Buckingham the #1 speaker of the meeting, topping the perennial favorites - our CEO and president. What impressed us all was how well Marcus had done his homework. This was no generic speech - it related to our business and our people, in a motivating, challenging and useful way" (Walgreens)

Marcus has been profiled in nearly every important publication such as The New York Times, Fortune, Fast Company, Harvard Business Review, USA Today, and The Wall Street Journal. He is frequently in demand for TV appearances, having appeared on The Today Show and The Oprah Winfrey Show amongst many others. Corporations as diverse as Coca-Cola, Microsoft and Disney employ his ideas and often invite Marcus to speak
