Due to a small technical error, this Friday Favorite is a little late. Better Late than Never.  Now onto my favorite….

As an entrepreneur you often feel like you have too be able to do everything for your business and as I have learned, that is just not possible.
A few years ago, a friend of mine introduced me to Marcus Buckingham’s Strengths Test.  He has several books out that allow you to explore your strengths – Go Put Your Strengths to Work and Now Discover Your Strengths.   His theory, which is backed up by the Gallup pole organization, is that if you focus on your strengths you will have measurably more success than if you try and improve your weaknesses.  You take a very easy on-line test that seems totally random but that is none the less accurate and it gives you your top 5 strengths.  Then, he gives you information to help maximize your strengths.

I have found this to be helpful not only with work, but with my personal life as well.  I am more accepting of what I am not as capable of doing and more willing to delegate.  In my personal life, it has allowed me to understand that my husband and I come at decisions from a different direction.  It helps me to be patient as he goes through his process of decision making.  Before I was very frustrated by his style and now I can see some merit to his method.  Also, by having employees take the test it helps you to plan how to maximize their strengths.  All in all, fascinating stuff to help us negotiate our busy days, both personally and professionally.  Check it out!
