How Your Strengths Can Sometimes Become Weaknesses?

Anyhoo, we have been busy delivering training programs with a special focus on improving employee confidence. As part of that training, we have been discussing a great deal around understanding our strengths and weaknesses in order to communicate effectively and engage successfully.

There has been a great deal of conversation around when to tone up or tone down your strengths to match up with what is expected out of you. I love discussing this because more often than not we are not aware when we need to tone down our strengths in order to add value.

To be honest, I too was nervous and quite often in my first year doubted my decision to leave a career so solid, I often asked myself 'Why' did I do something so silly!
