Standout - Business Case for Strengths- Trends for 2015

The performance of the best teams significantly out perform the rest, but why?

Merriam-Webster recently announced that the word "culture" was the word of the year for 2014. We’d like to think that an increased attention to consciously shaping the culture of organizations had something to do with that. And we’d like to predict in advance the word of 2015: performance.

With the rapid innovation of technology, growing millennial populations in the workforce, and empowered employees, performance — and specifically performance management — needs its turn in the spotlight.



The Gallop organization has found the answers by surveying 1.4 million people from over 50,000 teams.



One clear question, most effectively and consistently predicts whether you'll be on a high performance or low performance team:

At work, do you have an opportunity

to use your strengths every day? 

Those teams where people say that they do, consistently out-perform those teams that say that they don't. Watch to learn more... 

Those who strongly agree they have a chance to use their strengths are:
  • -   38% are more Highly Productive
  • -   44% have High Customer satisfaction score and
  • -   50% have Higher employee retention




Results from the exhaustive research indicates that:

The Most Important

driver of differential team performance

is when a person feels

their Strengths are in play.


 AND only 2 out of 10 people feel that their strengths are in play at work....



Learn how to close this performance gap and focus on the business case for strengths for 2015.

Join Marcus Buckingham and Jason Averbook as they discuss the top five trends in performance management and present examples of how organizations are taking a strengths-based approach, empowered by technology, to creating more teams like their best teams.
