The Power Principle
By Blaine Lee
I find Rath to be one of the more enlightened business and organization thinkers in my experience over the last couple of decades. In Strengths Finder 2.0 he shows how it’s most important to leverage your strengths as you work to address your weaknesses if you want to contribute at the highest level. When you become well acquainted with your strengths, you can better develop them in ways that help your organization. In Are You Fully Charged Rath rightly observes that people are feeling drained of energy in the face of 21st century complexity. He argues that energy-management is mission critical to being a high performer. And he challenges us to bring discipline and intentionality into managing and leveraging our energy. Rath provides helpful examples of how that can and should be done. Both of Rath’s books are essential guidebooks for 21st century leaders.
