Awakening possibility in people to deliver extraordinary results:
Contemporary business leaders have unique eyes to discover unimaginable uniqueness of people, look at all aspects of their individual traits, work ethic, creativity, experience, professional competency, hidden potential, achievements and performance. They are able to identify talent gaps by pondering: Where exactly the individual is lacking? What are the skills or attributes that need to be developed, does an individual's capability align well with a business's strategic need, beyond transactional activities, how to mind the gaps of collective capabilities of the organization to realize the strategic goals of the company? Training and development plans for workforces need to be in line with what the business or organization needs for the future. Organizations should set the leadership tone to encourage people to question the status quo, think independently and create an environment that encourages dissent and candor, change and innovation.
