    1 thought on “Why Make Eagles Swim?: Embracing Natural Strengths in LeadershipLife”

    1. This book is about positioning people in their strengths so that they can succeed. An eagle would be a terrible swimmer because it is not designed for it. In the same thinking, placing people who are not gifted (called attributes in the book) in a particular area and then asking for success will most likely cause frustration and failure. Another point made is that there can be a propensity to work on weaknesses for the ultimate goal of being a better individual. While working on weaknesses is ne [...]

    2. This book is a great direction for all people because it offers great advice on problems, organization, ways to interpret others, communicate…. It is a wonderful insight on how to reach one’s full potential using attributes one already has. This book also offers insight on how to successfully connect with others. I am letting family and friends know about this book because it offers great insight and techniques that will help parents/guardians, their child/children, and their friends excel t [...]

    3. I liked this book a lot more than the myriad other books of its type. Munn speaks as someone who is experienced and cares a lot about his employees and making a company/department run well. The descriptions of each type are clear and conversational, and it's likely you'll immediately think of a coworker that fits each description in addition to the strengths that describe you. The idea that a successful team is comprised of members with a variety of core strengths and it's important to identify [...]

    4. By far one of the best books that I have read recently! It does an excellent job taking you through the process of identifying and leveraging your own strengths and those of other people, rather than trying to make people do something they are not good at. Very inspirational, practical, and effective guidance. Loved it!!!!

    5. I wish I read this when I was a teenager! I always focus on my weaknesses instead of my strengths. This book teach me how to find true success as we focus on our gifts and not on our weaknesses. It's very helpful. This book has helped me change the way I see myself and others.Thank you Netgalley for this book.

    6. I really like the whole concept of focusing on our strengths, rather than weaknesses. This needs to be translated to more workplaces, so there's more innovation with professional reviews. Definitely read this book if you're interested in what makes people tick and you're trying to understand different personalities!
