Before listening to Marcus Buckingham's video describing strength focus, I reflected on figuring out my own strengths and the areas I feel weakest in. Both in and outside of work one of my strengths is teamwork and thinking of others. In most situations I am thinking of the well-being of the group or other individuals before myself. This is usually a good thing, but sometimes it can back fire. No matter the situation, I find myself thinking of how someone else will be affected. This strength can also relate to my weakness. My whole life I have hated confrontations. They have been my biggest weakness of all. I would and do try as much as possible to avoid confrontations. It feels like my brain just freezes in the middle of any confrontation and I lose any confidence I thought I maintained. Then almost every time after a confrontation is when my brain wakes up and I think of all things I should have said.
