In our careers, too often we dwell on the things we wish we were able to do, while not acknowledging all the things at which we excel. By focusing on your weaknesses, not only do you not give yourself a chance to succeed, but you also lose track of your strengths. I challenge you today to write down all of your strengths and how they can help you succeed in your career.
This week’s tool and video are designed to help you recognize your strengths. Fill out the tool and have your team do the same, then have a group conversation about everyone’s strengths and how they complement each other.
I promise you, that by understanding what your strengths are, you will be ready to utilize those strengths to build your career. No one has ever been penalized for doing a few things too well.
