On a mission to spark a “strengths revolution,” I would advocate cultivating the best of your skill set, rather than working to improve weaknesses. My five “attitude adjustments” serve as a framework for becoming a strengths-based human:
1. Measure what matters.
2. Stop trying to change people. Change Yourself. Start trying to help others.
3. Don’t be Title-obsessed. Your performance will thrive largely based on what you do – not what you are.
4. Stop looking outside. The solutions to your problems exist inside you. Be relentless, learning from the lessons of the top performers in your team.
5. Make yourself non-replaceable. Invest time in your skills, your work and all that matters to your life.
