Alan Watts about the Need to focus on Peoples’ Strengths

Alan Wilson Watts (6 January 1915 – 16 November 1973) was a British-born philosopher, writer, and speaker, best known as an interpreter and populariser of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience.

It is far more easy to boost one people’s strengths than focus on how to eliminate his/her weaknesses. You certainly engage far less time to focus on the positive side of a person, and you are way more efficient if you are able to understand your employees’ needs and dedicate your time identifying peoples’ skills, trying to fit them into the global enterprise strategy.

Through this way of behaviour, if you are able to maximize the peoples’ contribution to the whole, you will obtain a far better result than simply “using” them in their current position, as you are truly investing on a long-term basis in these people and in the company’s interest, as you are able to identify the functions they do best and cover the waeknesses by another collegue.
