"Trying to be good at everything is the best way to be mediocre at everything.” –Paul Allen, Ancestry.com and Strengths, Inc. founder

Top 3 Ways To Unlock Success In Your Team Through A Strengths-Based Culture
  • Value people. Treat people as assets to help achieve your vision, not as liabilities to protect against.
  • Manage weaknesses. Understand the weak spots in your employees, and help them build up those skills or work around them.
  • Focus on strengths. Acknowledging natural talents and assigning work accordingly leads to increased employee confidence and better outcomes for the business.
