One way leaders might get themselves into trouble is by overdoing it - doing too much of a good thing; whether that be talking too much, pushing too hard, delegating too much authority or getting too caught up in the details. That's how strengths, if taken too far, become weaknesses. Therefore, the concept of dividing qualities into "strengths" and "weaknesses" might be too simple. To handle the challenges that come your way, you must be able to read and respond adeptly by being aware of yourself and being aware of the situation.
Many entrepreneurs and leaders realize that empowering their team is the major key to manage their own workload and handle the constant pressures. Yet they do not like to delegate. It might be that they find it difficult to let go of responsibilities. Here is an effective way to set the scope in the first place and thus ensure a mutual understanding of boundaries and accountability.
Considering all the uncertainties and ambiguities that surround leaders every day, I believe that Steven Covey’s concept of the ‘circle of influence’ has become more vital than ever. We have a limited amount of energy to use at any time. The key is what we use it for and what we focus on.
