We all have weaknesses and each person that denies they have weaknesses are either unaware of their own nature, or they are downplaying those weaknesses, but everybody has them. Sometimes leaders have a harder time accepting that they may not have all the answers and that someone else might have something helpful to add. This stubbornness of not being able to accept additional information can stem from something from childhood, like if they were ever competitive with a sibling.
- We all have weaknesses, it’s important to understand those weaknesses and try to gain more positivity.
- You may not notice your own because you are so accustomed to them, but be on the lookout for your own flaws in leadership.
- If you were in competition with a sibling in your younger years, you may get defensive when someone tells you there is a problem.
