This definitive strengths guide by Sally Bibb shows how shifting the focus from what people can do (competency-based recruitment), to what they are naturally good at, is having a transformational impact on performance in organisations like the NHS, Saga and Starbucks.
Full of real-life examples, the book demonstrates how this powerful new method is fast improving employee engagement, bottom-line results and customer satisfaction. Including rare testimonies from senior leaders who have implemented strengths-based recruitment, it gives invaluable insights into the strategic drivers and operational impact of this approach. Packed with practical tips and advice, the book explains the approach, its benefits for both your business and your employees, and how to implement it in your own organisation. Evidence based, the strengths guide includes:
- interviews with 8 executive level leaders who have implemented strengths-based recruitment and development. It’s rare to get inside the heads of such people and understand their motivations and experience.
- interviews with 6 managers who have implemented strengths-based recruitment, who give very practical insight and lessons learned.
- interviews with 6 individuals about their experience of being a ‘square peg in a round hole’ and the contrast with being a ‘round peg in a round hole’ on their performance, engagement and well-being.
