"Strengths at the Core"
Extraordinary Results through Everyday People
Every employee brings strengths to the workplace or they shouldn't have been employed initially. Unfortunately, people also have weaknesses and sometimes these surface and bother people such that they can no longer see the strengths; even if the occurrence was just once or is just a personality quirk.
Twelve years in nuclear operations and nuclear talent development functions, including ten years in the US Navy's nuclear propulsion program, revealed a critical leadership practice; ignore the quirk, value people for the strengths they bring to your table and engage those whenever possible!
This doesn't mean that you should promote them now. But it does mean they should be used as a resource for their expertise; engage them in lessons learned, in performance improvement processes, as resources for JPA's, to assist new employees with structured OJT... When people are recognized and engaged for their strengths, they step up to the plate and increase their contributions.
