Yes, we need to lead from our strengths. And yes, trying to turn weaknesses into strengths can rob us of precious time better spent using those strengths. However, leaders, whose decisions and actions have far-reaching effects, need tools that help them look in the mirror and recognize not only the strengths on which they build their style, but those blind spots that, if not managed, have the potential to harm their careers and the work, morale, effectiveness and futures of those they lead.
In this Crescendo Connect Conversation, you will learn how three frameworks--emotional intelligence, Jungian type, and the 12 Lenses of Leadership--help leaders focus their strengths, manage those blind spots, and make tangible progress toward their key priorities.
