Don’t start with the list. Start with the leader.

That long list of competencies you want your leaders to embody? It started with a noble purpose: making your team leaders better. But leadership isn’t about checking off boxes on an abstract list. It’s about getting work done through others.

Where competency models fall flat by taking a “one size fits all” approach, StandOut®, powered by ADP®, knows that “one size fits one.” Our leader development offerings, from certifications to workshops to coaching, take a deep dive into the unique strengths of leaders and team members, helping them to tackle their most pressing real-world business challenges.

The Coaching Essentials for Team Leaders workshop was a really engaging experience.
And also very enlightening. I had some “aha” moments, and definitely getting experiences
from other people in the room was great. And I will never forget “Do, Be, Do, Be, Do!”
