Some years ago we had a OD training about teamwork, skills, communication and strength. It was nice and helps me a lot to discover my personality as like I did a SWOT analysis.
Most of the time we are focusing which is help us become who we are not. We can hear it day-by-day ‘you can be anything you want to be, if you just try hard enough’.
Embracing with this maxim isn’t something we outgrow.
So, a revision to the 'you-can-be-anything-you-want-to be' maxim might be more accurate:
'you cannot be anything you want to be - but you can be a lot more who you already are'
Knowledge, skills and practice are also important parts of the strengths equation. Without basic facts in your mind and skills at your disposal, talent can go untapped. It’s also easier to add knowledge and skills to your repertoire. You can always take a course on understanding basic financials, just as you can always learn how to use a new software application. Building your talents into real strengths also requires practice and hard work, much like it does to build physical strengths.
Why is it so important?
We have to focus on what we do the best. We have to feel: ‘I have the opportunity to do what I do the best’. I can imagine companies, managers who focuses on our strengths. It can makes a dramatic difference.
and I think so it can be works great in the private life as well.
Every human being has natural talent that are just waiting to be uncovered my Dear Friends!
All the bests,
