Based on decades of helping top executives improve, including the CEOs of major corporations, leadership experts Robert Kaplan and Robert Kaiser warn leaders of the danger in taking their strengths too far. Published in partnership with the Center for Creative Leadership, Fear Your Strengths draws on Kaplan and Kaiser’s wealth of experience consulting to senior leaders and their program of published research using an innovative way to measure leadership—a 360 assessment tool that captures when leadership strengths have turned into leadership weaknesses through overuse. Loaded with practical tips for raising self-awareness and techniques for reining in strengths overused, Fear Your Strengths helps leaders adjust both their behavior and the mindset behind it so they can make the most of their strengths—without overdoing it.
