Developing strengths instead of fighting weaknesses as a way to be effective at work

"Stop doing what works so well for you and don't devalue what comes easily to you, but turn it into an asset," Malwina Faliszewska, strengths coach, certified Gallup Institute trainer, and author of "Unleash Your Talent," encourages.

As she emphasizes everyone has potential, and strengths in which they should invest. This investment will result in satisfaction both on the personal as well as the professional ground. So instead of fighting with your weaknesses, it is better to focus on developing talents. Companies are increasingly moving in this direction, conducting strength tests among their employees.

The traditional model of education and development focuses on what is weak or imperfect in us, and this is what we are told to improve, fix or practice until the supposed defect disappears. As a result, we give maximum attention to this rather than focusing on discovering our potential. Instead, the expert believes that the concept of talent-based development is more effective.

"If our sense of life is that we are constantly improving weaknesses, then we focus on avoiding failure. On the other hand, when we are focused on developing what we are already good at and using our potential, we are able to achieve really great success," Malwina Faliszewska emphasizes.
