Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. When it comes to employees, we should not try to fix their fundamental weaknesses – it’s not likely to happen. Instead we should put them in a position where their strengths are valued.
For an entrepreneur – a leader of a 3D organization, it’s very different. Your fundamental strength in marketing or sales or production or innovation got you started. But a business needs have have multiple healthy functions to thrive, and it will become obvious that the founder/leaders strength or it’s corollary has become their fundamental weakness.
A leader needs to grow personally in order for their business to grow. Either learn enough about your weaknesses to make them strengths, or learn enough to recognize strengths in others that fill in for your weaknesses and be smart enough to know what to ask them to do and how to measure their performance.
Are your strengths also your weaknesses in growing your businesses? Still?
