Lost and withered on the vine or Simply Submerged Skills

”People who have the opportunity to focus on their strengths are six times as likely to be engaged in their jobs.’ (Tom Rath). And if you are engaged in your job, I’m sure any number of other surveys will reveal how much greater your chances are of being successful, in whichever way you define success.

For most of us, daily reality dictates very often that we do what we need to do simply to get the job done. That’s fine, but if that ‘needs must’ focus takes over your work-life, far from utilizing your key strengths, you may find that skills not only become submerged but underutilized skills¬†become rusty and worse still, wither on the vine.
