Know your limits

in Leaders & Managers,Leadership Skills

As a college student, John Baldoni once had a drawing-class professor ask if he understood what was going on in class. Baldoni answered that he knew what he was supposed to be doing, but his hands couldn’t execute.

Now a leadership author and coach, Baldoni knows that recognizing your limits is a critical first step. But what you do next is the really important step.

Perseverance matters, especially when you’re facing a human issue, one that a spreadsheet can’t resolve.

Good leaders acknowledge their limitations, then “open up themselves to others,” Baldoni says. “People want to work with a manager who knows what he can and cannot do.”
