Talent is Overrated – How Great Performers Really Get Great
Suppose most of what we believe about hard work and raw talent is wrong. That would mean most of us will never have the chance to perform as well as we could. Geoff Colvin, author of the groundbreaking international bestseller Talent Is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else, explains the surprising truths about great performers and relates them to real life in real organizations. He shows how most organizations value the wrong things – passion, honesty, and learning are more valuable than hours, IQ, or “native ability.” Geoff demonstrates that world-class performance comes from behaviors that every person and organization can adopt. Those who apply these principles gain a tremendous competitive advantage. Geoff cites relevant examples to prove it and to launch an important conversation in your organization.
