I highly recommend StandOut, a new assessment and book from Marcus Buckingham, who helped create the StrengthsFinder tool that some of you might have taken. This week I’ve read the book and completed the assessment to reveal the two most crucial roles that I play when I’m delivering my “A-Game”—and it was spot on, in my opinion.
This is a helpful companion to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. MBTI helps you clarify your innate preferences, with suggestions for more effective behaviors based on that clarity.  StandOut helps you pinpoint which two core sets of overall behaviors drive your peak performance; specifically, when it comes to being a leader, a manager, serving clients and pursuing sales.  Think of MBTI as who you are, and StandOut as how you win.
You can purchase just the assessment online; or you can buy the book, which gives you a unique pass code for the assessment. As you’ll see on the link above, the book is available in both print and digital formats.
I’m happy to discuss and offer more insights to anyone who is interested!
