StandOut introduces the next-generation strengths assessment from Marcus Buckingham, co-author of Now, Discover Your Strengths, the book that launched StrengthsFinder.
The product of a massive data set and rigorous statistical testing, the StandOut assessment unveils your two key strength roles and shows you how find your edge and win at work. Where other assessments stop at description, StandOut takes the next step and provides practical advice on what to do to make the most of the strengths you have. Each of the nine possible strength roles is fully delineated in the book, with a wealth of detail, including:
- Where you will be at your most powerful,
- How you can make an immediate impact
- How you can win as a leader, manager, salesperson, or individual contributor.
While the book and assessment are invaluable for people at every level of an organization, StandOut offers new insights and powerful tools specifically designed for managers in the optional Manager’s Team Report. This tool gives any manager an overview of her entire team’s strengths and provides a “cheat sheet” and coaching guide to help get the best performance from each team member.
Whether you’re an individual who wants to find your edge, a manager trying to fully understand the strengths of your team, or a leader in an organization looking to stay on the cutting edge of the strengths movement, you need StandOut. Marcus Buckingham’s latest work is essential for anyone who cares about using strengths to win at work.
