Know Your Limitations

We all have strengths – and we all have weaknesses, too. One of the most important things for any leader is to know and be realistic about both of those categories. You want to play to your strengths as much as you can, which means you need to know which things you genuinely do well at. But you also need to know where you’re not as comfortable or effective, and when confronted with them, where you can go for help. CEO Fran Tarkenton illustrates this lesson with a story from his time hosting the legendary Saturday Night Live.
