Yesterday we looked at the third strategy for growing your leadership, being aware of your strengths and weaknesses. I suggested that a good way to do this was to list out the things that went well and didn’t go well, identify what you did that impacted them, and then identify the knowledge and skills that supported your actions.
Today let’s look more specifically at a strength. Just as we all have weaknesses, we all have strengths. One fun way to think about strengths is to think about them as superpowers. Most leaders have at least one thing that they are really good at. That thing is your superpower.
Most of us are guilty of focusing on our weaknesses, and we need to do better at leveraging our strengths. Thinking about your superpower makes it more likely that you will use it.
Think about a couple of leaders that you really admire.
Now, turn these questions on yourself. You can pretend to be someone else, or you can actually ask someone else. Whichever way you go, you’ll come up with your leadership superpower.
I’m really interested in what you come up with, so please consider sharing by clicking here.
