You would agree that all of us have atleast one disruptive skill- an ability that sets us apart from others. You may have been honning yours for years, or you may be so innately good at it that you don’t even notice it.
I suggest these ways to identify your unique skills!
- Watch your reflexes: you may instinctively do what you are good at even without noticing it. Ask yourself when I feel more successful or invigorated, what i am doing?
- Look for confluence: A distinct skill may not be one thing, but an unusual intersection of ordinary profiencies.
- Listen to compliments: Peers, managers, direct reports, and even spouses are often good mirrors of your inherent strengths. Don’t habitually dismiss compliments, but mine them to discover your unique skills.
