When I start working with a new organization I often do an environmental scan to determine possible weak points that need to be addressed.
Often times I would find that leaders over use their strengths within the team. Acknowledging our strengths and using them when the situation dictates is important, however, our strengths don’t fit every senario.
For instance, a very decisive person may be viewed by some as a rule breaker or reckless, a persuasive person may be viewed as manipulative, or a caring person who values putting their needs last may be viewed as soft.
Everyone has a blind spot when it comes to leadership, let’s talk about how we can leverage these to keep moving the team forward!
