    Our parents, teachers and managers have told us that, if we want to succeed, we should find and fix our weaknesses. However, most of us never make much progress trying to eliminate our worst traits. In fact, our weaknesses are actually the best clue to our strengths. In this funny and counter-intuitive talk, David shows how to find happiness, personal fulfillment and business success by starting with weaknesses — and embracing them rather than trying to deny them.

    This presentation reinforces the goals of EO 360 by applying the principles to marriage, parenting, personal growth, business development and organizational management.
