Abstract:

Once you've discovered your strengths, you need to discover something else: your strengths can work against you. -- Fear Your Strengths provides tools to help you become aware of your leadership leanings and excesses and provides insights for combating the mindset that encourages them. It offers a practical psychology of leadership, a better way for leaders to calibrate their performance so that you can make sure your strengths don't overpower you but rather move you--and your organization--forward.

Leaders have countless resources and books aimed at helping them discover their strengths-which is fantastic-but none of them address what happens when these strengths are inevitably overplayed and start to do more damage than good, or what to do to rectify that dilemma. Until now.
