Strengths Oriented Leadership: The World Through Bee Glasses
This book is about talent, strengths, and positive psychology. Everyone is naturally talented in certain areas and if we get the opportunity to use our talents at work and develop them into strengths, then we can work better, faster, and far more productively.
Bees search for pollen, and they find it in the beautiful, successful, growing things around us: flowers. Flies search for rotting trash, bacteria, and ugliness. Do you want to go through life like a fly or like a bee?
These pages present the overwhelming scientific evidence that strengths-based leadership and collaboration lead to more productivity, more innovation, better well- being at work, lower absenteeism, and better health. Learning to recognize your talents, leveraging them into strengths, and mitigate your weaknesses will leverage the way you and your colleagues work.
