Zenger Folkman Leadership Podcast Get answers to today’s toughest leadership and development problems from thought leaders Jack Zenger and Joe Folkman!

In this very special episode, Scott Edinger and Barbara Steel discuss Zenger Folkman's recent article on the cover of the October 2011 issue of Harvard Business Review, "Making Yourself Indispensable."

Author of the article, Scott Edinger, will read actual excerpts from the HBR article and we'll get Scott and Barbara to expound on the material. They'll touch on the following topics:

  • Why developing strengths is more important than fixing weaknesses
  • How using "Competency Companions" can help leaders build strengths
  • The non-linear process for developing strengths
  • The best way to identify your strengths
  • How developing strengths makes you "indispensable"
  • Can you take a strength too far?
