6—Know Yourself

“People who have the opportunity to focus on their strengths every day are six times as likely to be engaged in their jobs and more than three times as likely to report having an excellent quality of life in general”

Gallop Poll, 2007

“What great leaders have in common is that each truly knows his strengths and can call on the right strengths at the right time. This explains why there is no definitive list of characteristics that describes all leaders.”

Donald Clifton, Founder ‘Strengths School’
