What’s the best way to find someone’s weakness? Adam Grant gives us the hot tip.

  1. What’s a piece of constructive criticism you’ve gotten recently? (This tells you not only what they identify as a weakness but also how they’re working to improve).
  2. What’s a positive quality that you don’t posses? (it reframes the weakness in a way that can’t be answered as “I work too hard”).
  3. How would others describe their weaknesses?(Are they conscious of their weaknesses and how others perceive them?

Always love to hear what you think . . .
