Are Your Strengths Just Buzzwords?
On thing that constantly surprises me is that we have such a hard time accepting and introducing our strengths and that some call them even buzzwords. At the same time we see our weaknesses as real and so easy to accept. This is strange since it’s on our strengths that we are hired.
Tom Peters who has written many great things on management put this on Twitter:
“If I see the term soft skills again I’m going to barf. Those are the HARD SKILLS – those that effectuate results”.
Is it really these that some call buzzwords – things that makes such a profound impact on our reputation? It’s time to think again
