Understanding our strengths and weaknesses is often the starting point for many development sessions. This basic exploration shows us what we should be consolidating, improving and so forth.
The process of understanding our strengths and weaknesses may require a full-scale appraisal involving a 360-degree evaluation, personal SWOT analysis or indeed any number of other tools. The important point, however, is for us to be honest with ourselves as the results can provide key input for our growth.
Regardless of how we go about understanding our strength and weaknesses, remembering a couple of key points is crucial.
Firstly, we are making this inquiry for the sake of obtaining information to better ourselves. Judging ourselves unfairly or too harshly offers no advantages.
Secondly, when going about understanding our strengths and weaknesses, the investigation is personal. Any comparison we choose to make should be between where we are and where we could or would like to be, instead of with others who have their own skill sets.
