“If you spend your life trying to be good at everything, you’ll never be great at anything.”
We have all heard this statement at some time in our lives. Every leader, including you, can be effective if you are true to yourself. What do great leaders do differently? The answer is “EVERYTHING.” Leaders play to their talents, are very different from each other, and are true to themselves.
The problem is that we compare ourselves to others, wishing that we had their talents. We can spend a good deal of our lives fixing ourselves or another’s inadequacies, while our real gifts and abilities lie dormant. In actuality, our best choice is to live by what our parents taught us when we were little; you don’t have to be like anyone else – just be the best YOU in the world.

Why focus on your talents? When we focus on talents, we are 6 times more likely to be engaged in our work. When people are more engaged at work, they have achieved productivity and satisfaction, both individually and in teams. And they are more than three times as likely to say they have an excellent quality of life. When people are more satisfied with their work, it positively impacts their relationships at work, at home and within the community. The greatest impact finding out your talents will have will be in the relationships you foster with this new-found knowledge.
The more you understand what makes you tick, the more chance you have for success in life. A stronger sense of self-awareness can change the way people see, communicate and relate with one another. Seeing people through a lens of strength, we can now perceive their activity coming from a place of strength, not weakness or opposition. This allows us to forge ahead from the positive, productive path that inspires others to follow.
Communicating with others through strength will help us choose what we say and how we say it. Relating to others through strength builds a greater sense of belonging and connection to one another. And when we engage in talent development, we reveal what most people are unaware of… that they are strong.
Leading with your strengths can help your work be more meaningful and help you achieve more exciting results, for everyone involved. We spend a ton of our lives working. Sometimes 50-60 hours per week. Most of the workforce in the United States would say the majority of their day is not spent using their strengths. Why is this? Many companies hire for skills and experience but lack a way of understanding what talent and strength they are getting through hiring. Imagine if your entire team knew their owns strengths and the strengths of those around them. This dynamic, when active, within a team can influence exponential change and success for the workplace
But, back to YOU! Once you have discovered your behavioral and communication style and begin practicing what you learned there will be the next step. As human beings, we are complex individuals bringing many experiences with us in our lives. The more we learn about ourselves, the more we understand how to use our most beneficial tool, ourselves.
