Focus on your Strengths

Focus on your Strengths

When you get to a point where you’re thinking you need some help to progress, either in your career or in your life in general, a coach may be able to help. But while you consider whether coaching is the right thing for you, here are a few points to consider:

• Concentrate on what you’re good at, as well as the things you want to improve or develop. The most talented natural athletes, creative thinkers, musicians and craft workers will become run of the mill performers in time, unless those innate abilities are honed, sharpened and put to use

• Early on in your career, as in life, you need to try things out and show you’re capable across a range of activities as you become established but sooner or later it’s good to identify your strengths so that you can look for opportunities and organisations in which you are likely to achieve the best results

• Don’t take yourself for granted; being articulate or well organised may seem normal to you as that’s the person you are, but recognising your capabilities helps you to demonstrate how good you are and to strengthen those positive attributes
