Business consultant, best-selling author and senior researcher, Marcus Buckingham is a sure-fire hit on the corporate sector. Believing that people will achieve results when focusing and emphasising their strengths, Marcus is a motivational speaker who brings out the best in his clients. Revolutionising the way businesses think by capitalising on positive skills, Marcus is well-placed to inspire employees to reach the height of their success.
From a senior researcher at the Gallup Organisation to a New York Times best-selling author, Marcus Buckingham is one of the world’s most sought-after keynote and motivational speakers who guides clients to source and make the most of their most skilled and gifted employees.
The theme that Marcus focusses on most prominently is ‘strengths’. He believes that businesses can succeed by nurturing personal strengths within the company, alongside efficient management, and he challenges anyone who underuses or undervalues their staff.
His best-selling books, First, Break All the Rules; Now, Discover Your Strengths; The One Thing You Need to Know; Go Put Your Strengths To Work; The Truth About You and Find Your Strongest Life, have been followed by his latest best-seller, Stand Out – which identifies the strengths of employees at every level, and suggests maintainable solutions for innovating strategies in order to make the most of every member of staff.
Building on the success of this, StandOut 2.0 has launched not just a strengths assessment but an entire productivity platform based on a new research methodology to reveal a person’s top two “strength Roles”— areas of comparative advantage. StandOut 2.0 goes beyond description to give people practical innovations that fit their strengths, and give team leaders quick insights on how to get the best from each of their team members.
Marcus works on the premise that when staff members spend over 75% of their day using their innate skills and working on projects that they are passionate about, they will produce exponentially greater results.
He believes that he has created the ‘strengths revolution’, and has instilled in his clients a new and infinitely more rewarding way of working.
The Marcus Buckingham Company was founded in 2005 to embody these beliefs and strategies, and to instil them into businesses looking for ways of increasing efficiency and performance.
Marcus has featured in most of the major broadsheet newspapers in the world, and has appeared on high profile US TV shows including Oprah Winfrey and The Today Show.
