Their findings combined with examples of wellknown leaders in action--such as Howard Schultz, of Starbucks, and Microsoft's Bill Gates--provide guidelines for accelerating leadership development in any environment. Building on Gallup's innovative "positive strengths" initiative, this results-driven book provides:
