Understanding your best contribution comes from appreciating how you impact the world around you. It's valuable to know what gives you energy and what fills your tank, but even more than that it's important to know how you effect those around you. In my opinion there is not a better place to start than in Marcus Buckingham's book Standout.
Needless to say, that when I had the opportunity to participate in some 1:1 coaching around my StandOut results, I jumped on it. Not only did I get a much clearer understanding of how I effect the team, I walked away with clear action steps.
My personal recommendation is simple, pick up these two books. They will impact both your own contribution and your ability to manage your team (keep an eye out for his 12 questions).
