How Do You Lead the Pack? A Resource to Develop Personal Strengths for Students and Practitioners
Prisant Lesko, Ashley
Journal of Management Education, v40 n1 p102-108 Feb 2016
Educators and managers that focus on individuals' strengths can see up to 40× more engagement from those individuals than those that do not. "StrengthsFinder" 2.0 builds a framework to understand and improve those strengths. This resource review will explain the history of the tool, including its origins in positive and strengths psychology. It will break out the assessment as a tool to be used in the classroom, as well as describe activities to educate on topics such as career development, leadership development, employee engagement, and academic excellence. A comparison to other assessments is presented and an evaluation of the tool's versatility and ability to self-assess is given. Finally, further information and a list of free resources are provided in use with StrengthsFinder 2.0.
