Best-Selling Author, Global Researcher, and Strengths Revolutionist
Marcus Buckingham is the world’s authority on what the most effective leaders and highest-performing people do differently. He is the New York Times best-selling author of two of the most popular 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 The Gallup Organization, he brought his data-based discoveries to build a $100 million tech company focused on helping people find and leverage their strengths at work. As a global researcher on people + performance, he currently sits on Harvard Business Review’s editorial advisory board.
Marcus demonstrates the correlation between strengths-driven, engaged employees and business fundamentals such as turnover rates, customer satisfaction, profits, resiliency, 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.
