Phil, thanks for the reference to David's content. The fallacy of focusing on weaknesses has always bothered me and it earned significant coverage in my book, Practical Lessons in Leadership. I have found through my research interviews that the combination of poor internal support for leadership development and flawed performance evaluation practices can contribute to a preoccupation on identifying and "fixing" weaknesses. The reality is that we all have weaknesses, and great leaders recognize that emphasizing and blending the strengths of individuals is much more effective than spending wasteful time on the fruitless task of fixing a weakness. -Art
