StandOut: Find Your Edge at Work, by Marcus Buckingham, One Thing Productions, Inc.
This brand-new book and assessment continues Buckingham’s reputation as the national leader in the strengths movement. For 20 years, Buckingham worked for The Gallup Organization studying what makes the real difference in exceptional performance for both employees and their managers. Since then he has written and presented extensively on the power of knowing your own natural strengths and those of the people who work for you and with you.
This newest addition to the strengths movement is particularly good for people who have not taken the original assessment because this is more targeted. Out of nine strength roles, you will learn your top two and then receive specific advice on how to maximize these strengths in your career.
It’s simpler and more applicable than the earlier assessments. I would recommend it!
