As a leader, your strengths and weaknesses will dictate your leadership style. Understanding the strengths of your team members will ensure they feel valued and fulfilled in the roles they are given.
This is a very important part of being a leader.
In this episode, I’m discussing the strengths of your team and knowing your role. Ideally, you’ll have ⅔ of your role in your sweet spot and use your strengths, and ⅓ will be the tasks that you have to do as a leader (that you may not love).
Identifying and championing strengths is a very central topic within positive psychology. As a volunteer life saver, we have a meeting before each shift where we identify everybody’s role by examining their strengths. This way, we’re making sure that every task is covered by the best possible person so, in an emergency, everybody knows what to do.
I’ll explore the science behind strengths, the fulfilment we attain by using our strengths, and how to identify the strengths in your team and in yourself as a leader.
