Effective leaders surround themselves with the right people and build on each person’s strength. Strengths-based leadership is based on the simple notion that a person’s talents do more than make him or her a unique individual. It is unique in that it builds on one’s areas of greatest potential rather than seeking to shore up weaknesses.
Gallup has studied talent extensively and discovered that the most successful people start with tier natural talent and add knowledge, skills, and practice. When they do this, their talent actually serves an accelerator to performance. It becomes a catalyst for achieving the desired objectives. So, it is important for you to know your talents and use them as a starting point for anything that you want to achieve.
People who focus on using their strengths are three TIMES as likely to report having an excellent quality of life and are six TIMES as likely to be engaged in their jobs – Gallup Research.
