We all have hidden strengths, and once you find yours they can quickly be elevated into learned strengths with attention and focus. This book shows you how.

Many people assume they should focus their efforts on improving their weaknesses, but the Sindells say that this takes too much time and effort—the ROI just isn’t there. The neglected skills in the middle, neither strengths nor weaknesses, is where the most potent development opportunities lie. They’re close enough to being strengths that putting your energy there can offer a powerful payoff. Using the free online hidden strengths assessment that the book provides access to, along with the exercises and case studies in the book, you’ll be able to identify your most promising hidden strengths and create a plan to turn them into major assets.

In today’s work environment, not growing and stretching yourself translates into lack of innovation, stagnation, and obsolescence.
