Discover your strengths

Work on improving your strengths

(Resources should go from make you competent into making you a star performer)

Look where your intellectual arrogance is causing damage

Taking pride of your weaknesses is self-defeating

Manners enable people to work together even if they dislike each other

How a person performs is a given, just as what a person is good at or not good at is a given


  • Am I a listener or a reader?
  • How do I learn?
  • Do I work well with people, or am I a loner?
  • Do I produce results as a decision maker or as an adviser?
  • Do I perform well under stress, or do I need a highly structured and predictable environment?
  • What are my values? What kind of person do I want to see in the mirror in the morning?
  • Where do I belong?
  • What should I contribute? Given my strengths, systems and values, how can I make the greatest contribution to what needs to be done? What Results have to be achieved to make a difference?

Do not try to change your nature

Manage the second part of your life, your side project.

  • Start long before you enter it

Working with Others

Taking responsibility for your relationships

To be effective you need to know the strengths, performance modes and values of your coworkers

Take responsibility for communication

Organizations like people have values, to be effective in an organization, a person’s value needs to be compatible with the organization’s values
