Focusing on your Strengths!

You’re in a job interview. Things are going well! You’re telling stories of your heroism and courage in facing down your greatest foes, growing businesses, the works. Then they ask the question: “Please describe your greatest strengths and weaknesses…"

You freeze! That’s because we, as humans, are terrible at realistically assessing our own strengths and weaknesses. It’s backed by research: we invariably rate our self-assessment either more optimistic or pessimistic compared to others’ observations of us. That’s why it’s so important to have a reliable feedback mechanism for determining and validating our strengths as we develop and mature our skills. 

This week on the show, Nikki and Pete talk about the challenges of self-assessment and offer a pair of terrific suggestions that you can use to discover your strengths right now.
