Face it, you can't be good at everything. Here's how to make up for the skills you lack.

 

1. Recognize and accept your weaknesses.

You can't turn a weakness into a strength if you're busy denying the weakness exists. So your first assignment is to recognize that you have weaknesses and determine what they are.

The Strategic Narrative: A Better Way To Communicate Change | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

If you think your company’s strategy conversations should only take place at the most senior level, you could unknowingly be crippling your company’s bottom line. Research shows that companies whose members have a clear understanding of where the organization is headed and how their daily activities contribute to the success of the organization consistently outperform the competition. When communicating change within your organization, senior leaders need to relay company goals and strategy to all employees, and the most effective way to do this is through a strategic narrative

donhornsby's curator insight, May 20, 10:23 AM

(From the article): Inspiration is not something to be left for the annual company kickoff. There are opportunities every day: when you want to empower a team member to take ownership of a project, when you want your feedback about someone’s performance to stick, when you’re communicating change, etc. Being a leader who persuades others through inspiration starts with connection. Greater empathy and relevance leads to growth, increased motivation, faster action, and real results. Use the Communicator’s Roadmap before your next meeting with your direct report to create an experience that will shift his response from “Sure, I can do that…” to “Count me in!”
