And yet, as Marcus Buckingham astutely points out, though the strengths-based approach is now conventional wisdom, the tools and systems inside organizationsperformance appraisals, training programs, and succession planning systemsremain stubbornly remedial and exclusively focused on measuring skills, finding gaps, and attempting to plug them.
