On this episode of the Leadership Vision podcast, we’re confronting the assumption that specific Strengths are good “leadership Strengths.” There’s a painful idea out there that leaders should possess particular Strengths, and if a person doesn’t have them, they won’t make for an effective leader. We think it probably comes from using one or two successful leader types as the mold by which ALL leaders should copy. An effective leader can have ANY number of Strengths combinations. There is no mold.
We’re incredibly passionate about this because you can’t look at five words on a page and presume to know how that person is using their Strengths to influence others. In this episode, we work to break down these presuppositions through the use of story.
