What Is Your Strength - Meet Paul Allen

I knew, because this is what we do, that Paul Allen was one of the founders of Ancestry.com but what I didn't know was how his life has been impacted since becoming involved in the "Strengths Movement". (Didn't know there was such a ting...?) Paul has taken the decades old data about the 34 different strengths that are out there and now works with businesses to help them define hiring profiles. We all have different strengths and, according to Paul, those differences are what can make or break a company. Now his new company SOAR.com helps gather these Strengths Coaches all in one place.This is fascinating stuff...go!
