Marcus Buckingham, Head of People + Performance Research at ADP Research Institute
Marcus Buckingham is a global researcher and the world’s authority on what the most effective leaders and highest-performing people do differently. He is the New York Times best-selling author of two of the most popular business books of all time, First, Break All the Rules, and Now, Discover Your Strengths. Marcus’ 2019 Harvard Business Review cover article, "The Feedback Fallacy," was recently selected by HBR as one of the most influential articles of the last 100 years. Marcus is the creator of the StandOut strengths assessment and the co-creator of StrengthsFinder - his strengths assessments have been completed by over 25 million people worldwide.
Building on two decades of experience as a Senior Researcher at The Gallup Organization, he leveraged his data-based discoveries to build a $100 million tech company focused on helping people find and contribute their strengths at work. Beginning with First, Break All the Rules, and continuing through his latest book Love and Work (April 5th, 2022) he is known for using reliable psychometric data to get to the core of what drives engagement, resilience, and productivity. He currently guides the research agenda of the ADP Research Institute as Head of People + Performance.
As record numbers of people are leaving their jobs, reconsidering their careers, and re-evaluating their priorities as it relates to work; it is apparent that work isn't working for us.
We are thrilled to welcome Marcus Buckingham, NY Times bestselling author and Head of People + Performance research at ADP Research Institute, who is currently working on a collaboration with HBR in anticipation of the release of his new book Love + Work. The focus of this body of work is helping people, leaders, and organizations understand the importance of tapping into love in order to find energy, inspiration, and success at work, in life, and even in relationships.
He will be joined by Christian Gomez, Head of Strategy at The Marcus Buckingham Company, an ADP company, to discuss the implications that this labor force dynamic is having on the readiness of our organizations and the tangible actions we can take as we design our people strategies during this uncertain time.
