Quotes & Awards

  • “The StandOut assessment is a great tool that will give you insight into what your strengths are that you can focus on at work. It will help you realize how you come across to others since it’s based on real life situations. The people you work with already get a sense of these strengths from you so it’s important you take the assessment and read the book to understand what you offer them.”

    Forbes

  • “Buckingham’s approach is practical, rather than theoretical…A motivating tool for anyone who works.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • A New York Times Bestseller

    " I always enjoy reading Marcus Buckingham books. His books are very engaging and they make you want to be a better person. Marcus has worked a long time with Gallup to develop a series of questions to help you be a stand out leader. I am a General Manager for Hampton Inn and Hampton uses Marcus quit frequently when helping to produce more engaged leaders at their hotels. His books have really helped me with my career at the hotel. I find that not everyone is good at everything, and that you must put people in roles they can succeed in. Right fit right job. By completing the strength assessments with your employees you are not only setting your employees up for success, but the hotel as well. Marcus breaks everyone down into strength zones. Pioneer, Advisor, Connector, Creator, Equalizer, Influencer, Stimulator, Provider, and Teacher. I personally fell under Connector-Stimulator. A connector is a catalyst. Your power lies in your craving to bring two people or ideas together to make something bigger and better than it is now. and Stimulator is the host of other people's emotions. You feel responsible for them, for turning them around, for elevating them. When I play to these strengths I DO feel stronger at work, and that I accomplished more at work. I love connecting people together and networking. That's what I do! I also do feel responsible for my employees and guest at the hotel and I want to see them succeed to highest possibility. I would recommend anyone that has the opportunity to listen to Marcus as a speaker do so! If not read the books, and find out where your strengths lie, you may be surprised! Very easy read and easy to understand. "

    " Great concepts....but the evacuation assessment was not as accurate for me as he claims. May still be some refining for him to do on this one. "
