What are you really, really good at?

Time to Read – 42 seconds (give or take)

Time to deploy – Slightly Faster

Competency based frameworks, and competencies, are dead.

Aside from “competency” being the single most boring word in HR, producing jacks of all trades and masters of none, they died because of one overriding mortal wound – if you, and everyone, does not work on their strengths, those strengths will reduce.

Fact.

What is the single choice that leaders can take in organisations, to make the biggest, quickest impact?

Identify, unlock and unleash the single biggest strength in everyone.

Including in you.

So, what is your single biggest strength?

What are you really, really good at?

And, once you know, what are you doing with it?

With my love and best wishes to you all

  • iN MY OVER 18YEARS EXPERIENCE IN HUMAN RESOURCES, I HAVE SEEN MANY PEOPLE BEING PROMOTED BECAUSE THEY ARE PERFORMING EXCEPTIONALLY WELL IN THEIR CURRENT JOBS AND UPON RESUMING THE NEW JOB THEY FAIL MISERABLY JUST BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN GIVEN A JOB THAT THEY CANNOT DO AND IN MOST CASES THEY BECOME FRUSTRATED AND EITHER RESIGN THE JOB OR JOIN THE GROUP OF THOSE WHO COMPLAIN ON ALMOST EVERYTHING JUST BECAUSE THEY FEEL DEFEATED AND UNWANTED…JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE DOING SOMETHING THAT THEY ARE NOT GOOD AT AND LEAVEING THAT IN WHICH THEY ARE GOOD AT…THE BEST THING TO DO IS TO TRY TO DISCOVER ONES POTENTIAL AND SUPPORT HIM/HER TO DO THE BEST IN THAT JOB RATHER THAN THINKING OF PROMOTING OR TRANSFERING…YOU CAN PROMOTE A PERSON IN THAT VERY JOB SO THAT YOU GET THE BEST OUT OF HIM/HER

  • My single biggest strength is my belief and my never-say-die ability. I will always believe I can do something regardless of the odds. Any my conscientiousness means I do it well.

  • I wanted to leave a role I was unhappy in and knew that the only way I was going to be able to do that was take decisive action.
    So I would say one of my biggest strengths is having the ability to make things happen. My decisiveness under pressure. That for me has helped shape the person I am.

  • I’m bets at being the best at what I do. I don’t settle for anything less than trying to be top at what I am undertaking. That’s a great quality in my eyes and I love the drive and enthusiasm I have been given.

  • That’s an admirable quality. I’m good at being honest. I think integrity is paramount in business and goes a long way. I know people who will buy off me whether the product is good or not. Because they know I have integrity and wouldn’t sell them something unless I knew it was to their benefit.
    That’s quite s strength and I’m proud of that.

  • Making money is what I’m good at.

  • I am good in spotting the good in other people. That’s what I am very good at. It helps me to live a better life because I value other people’s strengths, not just my own.

  • New to the site, I am enjoying the articles and questions etc here. I have always been a positive person and like to think that is one of my strengths.
    In adversity, I like to remain positive and am fairly confident I will bounce back out of any situation. For me that is a virtue I am proud to possess.

  • I’m good at making friends. And networking is so important in the world today if you want to get on. I’m happy with possessing that quality.
