He told Kevin looking at your strengths is a good starting point for personal reflection. The challenge becomes how you put your strengths into the world. Tom asks us to think about how we contribute to our teams because that may be far more effective than talent. He discusses the Contribify model and explains that when we work with our teams and set expectations of how each of us will contribute, we will have greater success. In this episode, Tom shares 1. Contribify Model. 2. Level setting contributions and remote teams. 3. Advice to leaders about questions and listening.
