Evaluation and Feedback

Case Study

 At work, church, or the community there are great teams and not so great teams. What is the most important factor that contributes to the creation of great teams? What is the most important thing you must do if you want to be most effective as an individual, a team or company?  Marcos Buckingham explains in a 12 minute video.   

You can be one of the few who know their strengths.

Learn Your Strength

Do you know your Strengths? Peter Drucker said “Most Americans do not know what their strengths. When you ask them, they look at you with a blank stare, or they respond in terms of subject knowledge, which is the wrong answer.”  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nfkc-yj4yq4

Marcus Buckingham says that if you want to consistently play to your strengths you must be able to clearly articulate your strengths.
