  1. I think it’s also important to not just know yourself but knowing others well on your team. The relationship of knowing people’s strengths is of benefit to the team as a whole. No “I” in team but there is an “I” in win, and if a team wants to win, the collective can work from their strengths!

Putting aside the myths are so important-1st myth-as you grow you change; 2nd myth-grow the most in the areas you are weak in; 3rd myth-put aside your strength and what is needed for the team. Insightful and if we learned to grow our strengths and work on our weaknesses, I think we would be better leaders.
