The Groundbreaking New Strengths Assessment From the Leader of the Strengths RevolutionBook - 2011
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.
