Research suggests the most common derailer of leaders is the overuse of their strengths. It is important to focus on your strengths. But you must also beware of what happens when they are overused. To use a sports metaphor, having a good fastball is an asset. But unless you are the “closer” specializing in the final three outs, you’ll need another pitch to be effective.
One of the reasons we are so vulnerable to the overuse of our strengths, is how common it is for leaders not to genuinely understand them in the first place. The good news is you can use a strength you don’t know you have. The bad news is you can’t moderate it.
You might be thinking, “What about all that compelling research on strengths-based development?” Learning how to moderate your strengths is a critical part of what it means to develop them.
In this webinar you will learn:
1) How your derailers flow from your unique identity profile
2) The hidden link between universal and unique derailers
3) The 2 sides of the derailer coin and how they work together
4) How to design a 3 step mitigation strategy for any derailer
