Marcus Buckingham

  • Leading Authority on Employee Productivity & the Best Practices of Leadership and Management
  • Best Selling Author
  • Strengths Revolutionist

During his 17 years with The Gallup Organization, Marcus Buckingham helped lead their research into the world’s best managers, leaders and workplaces.

A highly sought after speaker and consultant, Marcus Buckingham has taken his broad experience in management practices and employee retention and put it into two bestselling books:

  • First, Break All the Rules: What the World’s Best Managers do Differently

  • Now, Discover Your Strengths

His new book, Go Put Your Strengths To Work, explores important insights to maximizing strengths, understanding the crucial differences between leadership and management, and fulfilling the quest for long-lasting personal success.

Marcus Buckingham’s presentations take the key points of these books, combined with plenty of great examples from a wide variety of organizations, to show audiences how they can learn from the world’s best managers and leaders.

According to Mr. Buckingham, it is employee retention and employee happiness that directly relates to customer satisfaction, and therefore to the bottom line. He explores how harnessing the best employee's talent and good management truly affects customer loyalty, and how the trust given by a great manager to employees to handle customers in "their way" creates an atmosphere that generates intimacy with clients.

A wonderful resource for both Human Resources and Management issues, Marcus Buckingham challenges conventional wisdom and shows the link between employee opinions and productivity, profit, customer satisfaction, and the rate of turnover.

He is now running his own company, One Thing Inc., based in California.
Mr. Buckingham graduated from Cambridge University in 1987, with a Masters degree in Social and Political Science.

Strengths-Based Innovation — Find Your Edge: Win at Work

What does it take for people to stand out at work? How can an organization's best practices and innovations be shared most effectively? Marcus argues that the future of Learning and Development will focus on delivering to each employee only those innovations and techniques that fit his or her particular strengths. 

The Difference between Great Managing and Great Leading

Although many people assume that leadership is simply the next step for those who have proven themselves as managers, Marcus presents compelling evidence that, in key ways, great leaders must do the exact opposite of what the best managers do in order to excel. 

 What the World's Best Managers Do Differently

What sets great companies apart? Survey data gathered over decades' worth of interviews with thousands of managers and workers around the world reveals one simple truth: there are no great companies. Every company is made up of separate teams, and the performance of those teams, no matter how successful the company may be, varies widely. What makes the difference? The manager.

Strengths-Driven Performance

What is the correlation between engagement and performance? Marcus explains the specific lever that most impacts employee engagement: the extent to which they have the opportunity to play to their strengths.

Finding Your Strongest Life

Recent survey findings created headlines about a shocking decline in women's happiness over the last several decades. While many in the media rushed to conclusions about the impact of the research on feminism and on women today, Marcus avoids easy judgments and examines the causes and the appropriate response to a contemporary crisis for women.

Bringing TMBC's strengths workshop to our company totally changed the way we look at our People Development and Talent Review processes. Attending the workshop has not only help me implement a strengths-based culture within the company; it has also completely changed the way I operate personally and the way I lead and coach my own team.

Coca-Cola Company

TMBC's strengths program provided my organization with a new and unique platform to approach development planning. The result was a more engaged organization. An unexpected benefit for our team, aside from the personal learning and development, was the team-building that occurred as a result of the program.
