Utilizing Dependable Strengths for Success
There is EXCELLENCE
in each person….
It’s structure of skills, talents and attributes can be clarified and identified.
These can then be recombined or developed to match the demands of progress or changing conditions.
People generally use less than 20% of their potential.
80% is hidden and rarely brought into awareness.
Good Experiences can come from
Any time of your life
Any part of your life
Success & security
means being prepared for
Know the package of skills and strengths you really possess.
By uncovering your Dependable Strengths, you become free to use, develop, or combine them in different ways to accommodate change.
Change, then, comes to mean adaptation, flexibility, and opportunity, rather than the unknown and feared.
This is true career success.
In the best of jobs, there will be some
parts that you dislike.
Even at the best party someone
has to do the dishes.
One way to cope with this
is to form
Partnerships of Excellence.
This approach assumes there is excellence in
everyone and dignity in all work.
What you dislike, perhaps do badly,
there are others who can do it well!
Your “poison” may just be someone
else’s “cup of tea.”
Old tradition says, “Find out what you did wrong and never do it again.” New tradition says, “Find out what you did right, so you can be sure to do it again.” One way suggests going forward while looking back over your shoulder. The new way suggests a person find safe footholds and continue to climb.
