Strengthsfinder for Teams

I love Strengthsfinder and something that I’ve thought is interesting is looking at how to use StrengthsFinder for teams to get the best blend and complement.  A few years ago I read through Strengths Based Leadership and thought that was helpful in understanding how to apply Strengthsfinder for teams and not just for myself.  Knowing yourself and knowing how to complement yourself and your team is extremely valuable.
