    StandOut helps you accelerate your performance by showing you actions you can take to capitalize on your comparative advantage.

    Your top two Roles may not be how you see yourself. Instead they capture how you show up to others. They pinpoint your recurring reactions and your behaviors. They are your edge at work.
