Leadership researcher and New York Times bestselling author MARCUS BUCKINGHAM helps companies ask and answer, “Why do we deserve to attract and retain the best employees?” He helps leaders identify how to leverage the talents of each person to build highly productive, effective teams. And he helps each individual identify and lean into their unique gifts and interests to make meaningful contributions at work and in life.

"Marcus Buckingham spoke two weeks ago and there's still so much positive buzz around the office about his presentation. He takes complex things and breaks them down. People said, 'How can I take this and make it happen for me?' People left wanting to do something, wanting to take action."
