Unlike LIFE & MIND productivity there are not many BLOCKERS for STRENGTHS productivity. There is only one BLOCKER. That is focusing mainly on WEAKNESS areas. Now the question you might get is – shouldn’t we focus on our weakness areas so that we can do better in that area. Let me clarify. Whole of of this concept comes down to ROI. When you focus on your strengths you will get multifold return vs investing in weakness areas. But the strategy should be focusing on strengths majorly and managing the weakness areas with your strengths. And if any weakness area is really blocking your progress then you may need to spend more time to clear the path but not trying to master it. What is the problem if we master our weakness areas? No problem. Just that you will get low ROI and at the same time your STRENGTHS may not be in full action or leverage. There are some people who might try to prove that they can become good at any thing. They can be also. Same thing..you get low ROI.
Problem with focusing on weakness areas is not just with self. It goes to team and organisation level also. Hence more care to be taken and build strengths based teams and organisations. More on this in next lesson.
Overall one good thing here is solution is very simple. Simply focus on the STRENGTHS.
