Managers must know the people they manage, but as a team player you must know yourself, and by that I mean acknowledging your skills, your limits, and your potential.
Recognizing your own talents is crucial.
The successful ballplayer knows his strengths and skills, and he avoids fruitless attempts to be someone he isn’t.
Part of knowing yourself as a team player, therefore, is accepting your limits.
Stay within yourself.
Recognizing our limits can also be a way to recognize our strengths.
Most high achievers have a specialty.
Add knowledge of your own strengths to a maximum effort to improve, and you have a formula for success.
