3 Overused Strengths that Will Limit Your Leadership

by | Jan 7, 2022 | Podcast |

You work hard to set a positive example for your team. You care about success, and you want your people to succeed. You’ve clarified what matters most and you’re committed to accountability. You’re intentional about your culture. But somehow, your leadership presence isn’t working. You don’t have the connection or influence you hope for. Committed, caring, hard-working leaders often find one or more of three overused strengths interfere with their influence.

If any of these issues sound familiar, you can readily overcome them with a few straightforward solutions you’ll get in this episode.

Overused Strengths that Limit Your Leadership

1:00 – When your leadership presence isn’t working, you don’t have the connection or influence you hope to have.

1:27 – The first overused strength that can limit your leadership is tunnel vision. Focus is helpful, but become too focused and you miss out on relationships, perspective, and critical elements of the work.

2:20 – The antidote to tunnel vision.

3:00 – The second of the overused strengths that can become a problem is emotional splash. This is the unproductive drama, negativity, frustration, and stress that you can unintentionally dump on your team. Intensity is a strength, but one that we must manage.

4:52 – The antidote to emotional splash.

6:47 – The third overused strength to be aware of is toxic positivity. Optimism is at the heart of leadership – the belief that together we can have a better tomorrow. But toxic positivity takes this optimism too far and insists on positivity and excludes the range of other emotions like grief, frustration, or languishing.

7:50 – Antidotes to toxic positivity.

10:55 – Leave a rating, share the show with leaders in your life, and submit your question for a future episode: LeadershipWithoutLosingYourSoul.com

    This was a great podcast, especially for New Year, when “if some is good, more is better” thinking tends to dominate the conversation. Nice work!

      Thanks Nate – those messages do abound and don’t always serve us well. Happy New Year!
