Thought of the day – 4/17/12

         

What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses?  Which would you rather your boss focus on? Well…there has been some research done that says bosses who focus on the strengths of their team members get incredibly more buy-in and productivity. A lot more. Unfortunately, there are still bosses that do performance reviews that focus on the negatives (weaknesses) instead of the positives (strengths).

What are your kid’s strengths?  Are you focusing on those, or are you still too busy nit-picking the weaknesses?

For this week, focus on the strengths.  Forget the weaknesses for just one week and see what happens.
