As a leader, you don’t need to be competent in all areas - but your team does.
Strengths-based leadership is about focusing on your strengths, and delegating tasks that you’re not as good at to others who are more skilled or experienced. You can also use this approach to identify your team members’ strengths, and encourage them to use these in a way that benefits everyone.
Leaders are sometimes expected to excel at everything, and to have very few weaknesses. In reality, though, you’ll likely be an expert in a specific area only, despite your range of qualifications and experience, and this doesn’t guarantee that you’ll succeed elsewhere.
When you attempt to become an expert in all areas, you risk spreading yourself too thin and becoming ineffective. So it’s important to recognize your strengths and weaknesses
and delegate tasks that other could do better.
