How do you know if you are using your Strength as a Strength or as a Weakness?

“Look and you will find it – what is unsought will go undetected.”
~  Sophocles

If you have spent time developing your strengths, you know the power this brings to your Leadership Core. However, there are also times when we need to adjust our process or approach to be more focused in the strength’s productive outcomes.

Ask yourself these 3 questions about each of your strengths to find out if you are using them as a strength or a weakness:

  • Are you using your strength toward meeting a purposeful goal?
  • Do you feel good when you are using your strength?
  • Do others feel good when you are using your strength?

If you answered no to any of these questions, take a few moments to rethink how you use your strength and adjust so you can say yes.

“I am passionate about helping people” just isn’t specific enough.   How do I go the next step?
