In the USA, we launched the book on Broadway, New York with an event hosted by Matthew Bishop, journalist, former Bureau Chief of The Economist and now MD of The Rockefeller Foundation. Matthew interviewed me and led an inspiring and thought-provoking question and answer session. Click here to read my blog post A tale of a New York book party (The Strengths Book officially crosses the pond!) where you can also watch a video of the interview.
Strengths-based Recruitment and Development: A Practical Guide to Transforming Talent Management Strategy for Business Results
This is the first book to be written on this subject and it was published by leading global publisher, Kogan Page.
“Higher productivity is the key to rising living standards but it will not happen just by relying on new technology and skill training. It needs good personnel management to get the right people in the right jobs. Sally Bibb explains convincingly that traditional recruitment based on technical competence too often produces square pegs in round holes. Her advocacy of strengths-based recruitment, identifying what recruits actually want to do and how to liberate their strengths, is supported by evidence which I found compelling. Several NHS Trusts, Saga, the AA, Starbucks and others depend on their staff’s ability to deal well with patients or customers and this can only happen if staff are contented and highly motivated: all have successfully used the methodology described in the book.”
