Hello Steemians! Hope you are all wonderful. Welcome to yet another article in Effective Leadership series. In the previous article, we saw about developing strengths in general. In this article, we will see in detail on how we can build personal strengths. A self-evaluation is always necessary to understand your strengths and weakness. If you identify strengths, you can work on building them. If you identify weakness, you have to first accept them and then you can work on finding ways to live above them because eliminating all the weakness can be a big challenge for everyone. Effective leadership is also about building personal strengths by identifying them. Building them can be done either by themselves or with the help of mentors. Assessing your potential to be a good leader and evaluating them frequently can help you understand more about your strengths.
Building Personal Strengths

Advantage of building personal strengths
A leader is a person who is going to be an example for the team members. In order to be a role model for the subordinates and other colleagues, it is important that a leader should have personal strengths and uniqueness in the tasks that they do. With personal strengths and experiences, a leader will be able to mentor other team members. The best strength that you have is something that comes easily for you without any additional effort. The advantage of having such personal strengths is to be confident and not so dependent on your employer. Even if your employer is changing, you will be able to survive in the industry in a different role with all your strengths.
