At Your Best

ID-100281002What does it mean for you to be at your best? Is your answer influenced by others’ views of what a good manager is or your own view? Being at your best asks that you manage in a way that allows you to excel. It asks that you continually improve your skills, honor your values and stay true to yourself.

Be aware of people or situations that hamper your ability to be at your best.

Being at your best is your gift to the world and to yourself. When you put your focus on being at your best, it is a win-win all around.

What Are Your Best Talents?

ID-100207071We bring all that we are to our managing – our strengths and weaknesses, our good points and bad. There is a lot of focus on correcting our weaknesses. Today, let’s look the other way and focus on maximizing our talents. When we come from our talents, we start with an advantage. We know we are good and build on that. Our weaknesses may still be there, however we can use our talents to address them.

What are your three best talents when it comes to managing? Are they communication, organization, technical skill, strategic thinking, creativity or something else? How can you use them to your maximum advantage and to address any weaknesses you have? Are you expecting too much of yourself? No one has every talent that exists. We all have weaknesses and can deal with them by delegating, building skill or finding alternative approaches.

How can you use your best talents to maximum advantage for you and your organization?
