Workshop: Standout 2.0 - Building a Culture Of Strength Within The Organization

StandOut 2.0 is designed to help organizations and individuals within the organization understand what strengths they bring to work. Instead of focusing on what you lack, it focuses on what you bring to work and are able to contribute to the organization. It begins by identifying strengths (which are outcome-oriented and based on what people actually do consistently and do well).

  • Using a work-based situational assessment, StandOut2.0 identifies 9 strength roles and the 2 that are most dominant for each individual in the way that they work and interact in team settings. In some ways, good teams are like jigsaw puzzles—the pieces are all different but complete the puzzle when in their right places. 
  • StandOut 2.0 identifies how others experience us and provides specific tools to help team leaders and teams be more effective at work. It builds better team leaders and more effective members of Leadership Teams.
  • StandOut2.0 identifies the team leaders primary strengths at work and can improve effectiveness and engagement. Gallup’s work on engagement states that engagement improves as people are able to do more of what they are good at—understanding the strengths that individual members bring to the team improves engagement, accelerates the work of the team, and offers dynamic new possibilities of inter-team and organizational capabilities. (Practice Area 4: Staff Effectiveness)

Completion of the StandOut 2.0 assessment found in StandOut 2.0 by Marcus Buckingham is required as pre-work. Bring your results to the workshop to learn how you “stand out” at work.
