It can happen that the system picks a focus area, but, perhaps, you may not have enough authority over it to act on it. In fact, through emotional and social intel, you may want to improve an entirely different driver, which has not been set as a focus area. For this reason, we recommend administrators to enable the Manage focus areas permission for manager access groups.
If this is enabled, the manager can dismiss the recommendation, and set the other driver as a focus area by going into the driver's page and clicking on Set as focus area. You can read more about this in Strengths and focus areas.
