Beliefs of Vision 2-10: - Everyone has God-given talents. - Frustration with self and others is often the result of a misunderstanding of strengths. - Leaders are not born but developed, and this world needs more leaders who work from their strengths. - Self-awareness of talents is just the first step in talents becoming strengths. - Focusing on strengths over weaknesses produces greater results. According to the Corporate Leadership Council production is -26.8% when the focus is on weaknesses. - A well-rounded leader equals an ineffective leader, but a well-rounded team equals production and health. - Organizations can only go as far as the health of their leadership and their teams. Teams that focus on their strengths are 12.5% more productive (Gallup).
