This week, I sit down with Greg Griffin of Dreams Sports Podcast. We talk about being self-aware and comfortable with your weaknesses. Being willing to try new things. We chat about Greg taking part in the African American Leadership Program at Cardinal Stritch that helped to identify who he is as a leader and a person. We chat about spending 70 – 75% of your time strengthening your strengths, 20 -25% working on the things that you could be better at and about 5 – 10% of your time working on your weaknesses.

Golden nuggets:
