Marcus Buckingham is the author of two of the best-selling business books of all time, has two of Harvard Business Review’s most circulated, industry-changing cover articles, and has been the subject of in-depth profiles in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Forbes, Fortune, Fast Company, The Today Show, and The Oprah Winfrey Show. After spending two decades studying excellence at the Gallup Organization and co-creating the StrengthsFinder tool, he built his own Coaching + Education firm, The Marcus Buckingham Company. As CEO, he quickly turned it into a Human Capital Management company working with some of the world’s largest organizations.
Marcus is known as the world’s most prominent researcher on strengths and leadership at work, and today leads research at the ADP Research Institute. Challenging entrenched preconceptions about achievement to get to the core of what drives success, Marcus’s strengths- based approach is defining the future of work as we know it.
THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… people who are looking to find the love in what they do and learn how to contribute it to others.
TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… We are so focused on finding work that we love, but most people don’t know the real truth of what we love. To find what we really love, our careers should be a scavenger hunt of the daily activities and experiences that bring us joy and fulfillment, rather than focused on a metric of success that only takes our work performance into account.
WHAT I LOVE MOST… Our real strengths aren’t necessarily about what we are good at doing, but rather what gives us the most fulfillment. Marcus challenges us to return back to the childhood delights of exploring what love and centering our work on those principles. You don’t have to love everything you do, but you should be able to find love in what you are doing.
