“We want to know where our deficits are.” That is what managers say to us again and again, especially the young ones with a desire to learn. We have seen this in other countries, too.

They’re even more amazed when they discover that efficient leadership utilizes strengths and is not about “patching holes”.

Making people aware of their strengths and talents builds up their self-confidence and motivates them to put their talents to use.
