Overview
Leadership is not just a formal position, but rather a choice to deal with people in a way that will communicate to them their worth and potential so clearly that they will come to see it in themselves.

Do you agree that the majority of your team possesses far more talent, intelligence, capability, and creativity than their present jobs require or even allow? Do you believe that you as a leader hold the key to unlocking that potential?

A recent study looking at the differences in productivity between the top 1% and the bottom 1% of all performers in different kinds of jobs found some very interesting results:

The highest performers in low-complexity jobs, like flipping burgers in a fast-food restaurant, outperformed the lowest performers by 300%
The highest performers in medium-complexity jobs, such as factory production work, outperformed the lowest performers by 1,200%.
The highest performers in high-complexity jobs, such as major surgery, approached infinity in outperforming the lowest performers. The difference could not be measured. It was off the chart.

As work becomes increasingly complex, the opportunity to unleash people's talent is greater than ever. Given the difference in performance between low and high performers in virtually every job category, it seems irrational to leave that talent untapped.

Great leaders also understand that to accomplish great results, a new "mind-set, skill-set, and tool-set” is required—one that unleashes the talent and capability of their team against the organization's highest priorities.
