One of the "go-to" questions in an interview is "what are your strengths and what are your weaknesses". It's a question that is asked in some variation in pretty much every single job interview.
The truth is, we all have strengths and weaknesses when it comes to work and our professional life. Knowing what these are and how to work with them is the key to success in your career and your life.
Well...so what does this have to do with being a business owner or entrepreneur?
Grab a cuppa and read on…
Are you exploring your strengths and weaknesses as well? Your business is only going to grow as far as you are willing to grow your own skills and abilities.
It’s true: leadership sets the tone and level of productivity through who you are and how you lead and engage your people.
Learning about why you react the way you do, your leadership style, your gifts, your areas for growth, even learning about how and why you are more productive in certain situations compared to others, are powerful skill sets to have as a leader.
If only there was a tool, or a manual of some sort that could help us dig deeper within ourselves to understand why we are the way we are and why we are better at somethings in the workplace and need improvement in other things.
Check this out….drum roll please.....there IS one!!!!!!
Would you be interested in learning how to leverage who you are in order to become the best leader you can possibly be?!?!?
What if I could give you the secret password to unlock your own “personal manual” to life so that you could gain an unfair advantage over your competitors?
Imagine that you could learn how to engage your employees in a way that genuinely created loyalty and productivity for the long haul…
Or imagine this...you’d be able to quickly and easily engage your customers with “messages that matter”, building those kinds of long-term and loyal relationships that are so essential for businesses to thrive…?
Well, I’m ready to give you the inside secret that is going to help you unlock your own genius inside so that you can do all this and more.
You ready…? Are you listening…? Here goes…
Your own personal manual is called your Myers-Briggs Type!
Are you having a bit of an “ah-ha”, light bulb moment? How could it be so obvious??
Did you know that your personality type is the manual to go to when you want to learn everything about yourself, including your strengths as well as areas for growth?
It’s also the number one tool for learning how to tap into your sweet spot so that you can thrive in your business and life.
Yup. It’s true.
Knowing how you like to work, the environment you work best in, how you get along with others, as well as, what kind of management style you respond best to...all these nuggets are things you need to know to properly represent and promote yourself and your business.
It's an essential practice for you to engage in as a business owner. Here’s why:
Your team is only going to be able to grow and thrive to the level that you are doing so for yourself.
As a business owner and entrepreneur you may not always consider how your strengths and weaknesses impact your teams and your business success. You might not even know your personality type or really who you are as a person.
And this is what is going to hold you, your teams and ultimately your business back from achieving the kind of success you’ve always dreamed you would have.
Each MBTI type has its own strengths and weaknesses and to be a successful business owner, you need to understand your own personal strengths and weaknesses just as any other member of your team.
It’s time to learn about your own personality and work style. That is, if you truly want to get where you dream of going.
And that’s what I am here to help you do. Let’s talk.
Here's To Your Success,
