There is no doubt that great leaders need to understand their strengths and weaknesses. They know the areas where they lack ability and how to find the individuals with the strengths to complement those areas.
Great leaders then focus on their strengths. Numerous sources claim that leaders should focus 80% of their time in areas of their strengths and only 20% in areas of weakness.
Focusing on the areas of passion and strength makes a good leader great, and makes a great leader outstanding.
The challenge for us is taking time to examine and evaluate and then make sure we work to reach our greatest potential.
