Recently I asked what leaders were doing to stay on top of their game. When I think of kickin’ it up a notch (as Emeril says), there are 2 ways to go. You can make a list of all the things you don’t do well (trust me, we all have them) and work on those. But if you’re like me, the things I don’t do well are the things I don’t like. And the last thing I want to do is spend time or money trying to improve something that doesn’t interest me.
But Steve Roesler from All Things Workplace gave me an idea in his recent post Talent: How to Make Strengths Even Stronger. What if I look at the things that I do well (and like) … and learn more about leveraging those?
Think about it…what are your strengths…what do you do well…and how can you capitalize on them even more?2
