There’s a trend to only focus on your strengths. While I agree you should capitalize on you’re strengths, Leaders are doing everyone a disservice (including themselves) if they don’t work to improve in areas they are weakest.

If you’re only focusing on your strengths, that means you’re ignoring the other areas required to be an effective leader. Think differently. Change your mentality. Maybe you’re struggling with accountability, difficult conversations, setting standards, or having empathy. Identify your weaknesses, and then lean into them. Do the work.
