    Know your own strengths. To best develop other workers’ strengths, managers first need to understand their own. No two managers are identical — and all workers, including managers, are at their best when they take a strengths-based approach to their work. Managers who play to their own strengths enhance their abilities and establish a unique management style. This practice fosters an environment where employees feel comfortable discussing their strengths and limitations: When managers are authentic and open about their own strengths, employees follow suit.
