The “Paradox of Potential” is Thom Singer’s newest keynote and workshop for 2018.
Having “high potential” does not mean performing at maximum capability. While many believe they are doing all they can, a huge number of professionals are frustrated because they are coming up short of expectations. Some have become paralyzed from taking risks by the fear of failure, while others are not sure what is holding them back. Thom Singer has surveyed hundreds of people and the feedback is stunning that the majority of people are confident they can have greater success in their career.
Companies in all sectors have employees who have reached a plateau or have become stuck in the “high middle”. There is a very real gap between potential and results, and Thom wants to show people the path to doing more at any stage of their career.
If over half of your people could do more, how would your bottom line be impacted if they had a path to navigate their own way across the chasm between potential and results? Leaders need to understand that there are unique reasons that are keeping each person on their team from achieving at their highest levels.
Beyond excuses and finger pointing, this interactive presentation gets to the heart of how people can accomplish more and enjoy their work. For decades companies have been identifying and training their “high potential” employees, but these individuals are not always growing into the organization’s future leaders. There is a clear paradox around potential.
The “future of work” is about more than telecommuting and stand up desks. Finding ways to embrace potential, goals, educations, action, hard work and serendipity is key to long term success. Those who are focused on goal setting, realistic assessments, teamwork, successful human engagement, cross-selling, and other skills will help their company reach the highest potential and be more fulfilled in their jobs.
THIS PRESENTATION IS IDEAL FOR COMPANY MEETINGS OR SALES RALLIES
The gap between potential and results is true not only for individuals but also for organizations. It is common to see a startup or other company that has a lot of potential, only to later witness the shut down of the business. While it is not possible to always achieve full potential (as once you get there, new opportunities will appear that creates a fresh path toward more potential), the constant struggle to bridge the gap will not happen by accident. Nobody should be comfortable relying on luck as the answer to their future.
Engage your audience with “The Paradox of Potential” and change how they perform.
