As a leader you create value by managing people and not as much by your own individual contribution. Success will depend on how well you match you team. Great leaders focus on the strengths of their best people. Poor leaders focus on the weaknesses of their worst people. Focus most of your efforts on your key contributors and help them to win. They act as role models for the team. When they win, you win!

In your article, you stated that "Great leaders focus on the strengths of their best people." Although I agree with this statement, I would add that even mediocre performers will turn into great performers if you allow them to work in their areas of strength.
