The leader who embraces a teaching model focuses on building people, then, the people build the company. As you approach this mentoring activity, it is important to think through a four-part framework: beliefs, values, character and skills. There should be an emphasis on maximizing strengths, balanced by systems’ protection against life-threatening weakness. These are the particular weaknesses that can destroy you. One does not achieve high impact by working evenly to offset their weaknesses. One must maximize strengths while paying close attention to those key weaknesses that completely “cancel out” your strengths.
