With the myriad of leadership gurus, there is never a shortage of "training flavors" regularly dished out for employees to consider. The effectiveness of following such trends is greatly diminished if we as leaders and managers do not have the right starting point because there is really no such person as a "well-rounded" leader.
All leaders possess a unique and distinctive set of talent DNA and if he is equipped and trained to be more of who he already is (vs being trained to be someone he is not wired to be), then there is sustainable motivation for doing a great job. In fact, people who do have the opportunity to focus on their strengths every day are six times as likely to be engaged in their jobs and more than three times as likely to report having an excellent quality of life in general.
Do you know your leadership talent DNA? Watch the video and see how it all fits together.
"Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What's a sundial in the shade?" – Benjamin Franklin.
