StandOut: The Groundbreaking New Strengths Assessment from the Leader of the Strengths Revolutionby Marcus Buckingham
Synopses & Reviews
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:
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.
The next-generation strengths test from the leader of the Strengths Revolution.
Millions of people have taken Gallup organization's StengthsFinder and discovered their top five strengths. As the co-creator of that test and co-author of the book that launched the strengths revolution, New York Times best-selling author Marcus Buckingham has spent the last decade leading people and organizations into a place of strength.
But something always seemed to be missing. Wherever he went, Buckingham heard two consistent gaps in the StrengthsFinder results. From professionals: I love knowing what's strong about me, but what am I supposed to do with it? From managers: I have too many people on my team to keep all their strengths straight in my head. There's too much information to use it practically in my day-to-day leadership.
StandOut starts where StrengthsFinder ends. Using a massive data set and rigorous statistical testing, this next-generation strength test not only affirms what is strong about people but gives them-everyone, the bosses, the executives, the people in the middle-hyperpractical tools to leverage their strengths every day so they can win at work.
