How much of your workday do you spend playing to your strengths? - Chat with Marcus Buckingham
In this 41 minute podcast, I chat with speaker, author, and best selling author Marcus Buckingham. We discuss the barriers that get in the way of us playing to our strengths at work and strategies that we can use to increase the amount of time we spend on tasks that strengthen us (and reduce the time we spend on tasks that weaken us). This is a lively and helpful podcast and Marcus shares several stories and suggestions that can help everyone enjoy their work more fully while benefiting the organization in a deeper way. This is also a great podcast for managers because we chat about the manager's role in leveraging strengths. Join the strengths revolution!
Marcus will be offering presentations in several cities March-May. Click here to see his tour schedule. While this is a tour to share his new book, Go Put Your Strengths to Work and his DVD training series Trombone Player Wanted, he has teamed up with local organizations to offer these talks for a great value. For my fellow Seattlites, Marcus will be presenting on March 19th. The Puget Sound Chapters of ASTD, ODN, and SHRM have teamed up to produce the event. For $35-45 you get the book and tons of extras. And Marcus is very good speaker, so it will be a great event for sure. I will be there, let me know if you plan on going. Also, for those of you in the New York City area, Marcus asked that I pass along that he will on PBS station WLIW for pledge week. You can see Marcus on 2/11/07 from 3:00-4:30pm.
