Leaders, Use Your Strengths and Forget the Rest

Matt Perman explains in this post from an interview with the authors of Strengths-Based Leadership, Tom Rath and Barry Cochrie:

We all have natural talents, of course, but the greatest leaders are highly aware of theirs. They know what they’re good at and spend countless hours making themselves better at what they do best. They don’t try to make hemselves well-rounded or like some other leader. Nor do they devote their energies solely to the relentless pursuit of strategy, vision, or any other ideal. And what they don’t do well, they hire someone else to do. 

This would apply to leading your family, discipling your children, and teaching in your local church, too.
