If you want success focus on your strengths

Category : CAREER

We live in an age of unprecedented opportunity: If you’ve got vision and smarts you can rise to the top regardless of where you started out. My experience coaching and training for more than a decade worldwide – confirms this excerpt from Peter Drucker:

“Truth is, companies do not manage their employees’ careers effectively so it’s up to you to carve out your place, to know when to change course, and to keep yourself productive during a work life that may span 50 years.”

“What are your strengths?” – is the first question I ask in my coaching sessions. Most people think they know what they are good at. They are usually wrong. They know more about what they are not good at – and even get that wrong.

Throughout history, people had little need to know their strengths. The peasant’s son would also be a peasant; the artisan’s daughter, an artisan’s wife. But now people have choices. We need to know our strengths in order to know where we belong.
