Founder of the Strengths Revolution

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. He 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.

He is the author of nine books, and his latest release—Nine Lies About Work: A Freethinking Leader’s Guide to the Real World—takes an in-depth look at the lies that pervade our workplaces and the core truths that will help us change it for the better.

“Creator/Stimulators are enthusiasts. Like a magnet, they draw us inexplicably to them. We feel invigorated with a sense of possibility when we’re around them. A breath of fresh air compared to the oft-pessimistic or cynical perspectives of others, they have an uncanny ability to get us to rally behind their ideas.”
