Develop Leadership Strengths By Building Around Them by Scott Edinger at Forbes on 21 August 2013

Some articles state that you need to improve on your weaknesses to become a better leader; this one states that you need to build on your strengths.  More specifically, you need to improve the complementary skills surrounding your strengths, with some thoughts being:

  • You don’t build strength in the same way you fix weakness (you need a slightly different approach in how you use your strength)
  • Use interaction effect to your advantage (leadership skills build on one another)
  • Follow your passion (you are more likely to improve something when you are interested in it)
  • You won’t overdo it (when it comes to leadership effectiveness, is there really such a thing as ‘too much’?
