Marcus Buckingham's Biography

Marcus Buckingham has dedicated his career to helping individuals discover and capitalise on their personal strengths. Hailed as a visionary by corporations such as Toyota, Coca-Cola, Master Foods, Wells Fargo, Microsoft, and Disney, he has helped to usher in the “strengths revolution,” persuasively arguing that people are dramatically more effective, fulfilled and successful when they are able to focus on the best of themselves.

In his nearly two decades as a Senior Researcher at Gallup Organization, Marcus studied the world’s best managers and organisations to investigate what drives great performance. His research laid the foundation for a string of New York Times best-selling books that use empirical data to challenge preconceptions about achievement. First, “Break All the Rule”s (co-authored with Curt Coffman) kicked things off in 1999, followed by “Now, Discover Your Strengths” (co-authored with Donald Clifton, 2001), “The One Thing You Need to Know” (2005), “Go Put Your Strengths to Work” (2007) and “The Truth About You” (2008).

Marcus’s latest book, “Find Your Strongest Life” (2009), was inspired by the overwhelming response to his appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show – 100,000 unique contributors posted messages online after the show and 1.7 million people downloaded his three-hour workshop video. The book tackles head-on the numerous studies revealing a drastic decline in female happiness over the last 40 years, and offers strategies for reversing this disturbing trend. In addition to The Oprah Winfrey Show, Marcus has been featured on Larry King Live, The Today Show, Good Morning America, and The View. He has been profiled in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Fortune, Fast Company, and Harvard Business Review.
