Some talented people reach their full potential, while others self-destruct or remain trapped in mediocrity. What makes the difference? Author John C. Maxwell, the go-to guru for business professionals across the globe, insists that the choices people make--not merely the skills they inherit--propel them to greatness. In other words: if you really want to make an impact in your organization, it’s the skills that take you beyond talent that matter most. In Beyond Talent, Maxwell shares thirteen attributes to add to your talent to maximize your potential and live the life of your dreams. Among other truths, readers will learn: belief lifts your talent; initiative activates your talent; focus directs your talent; preparation positions your talent; practice sharpens your talent; perseverance sustains your talent; and character protects your talent. You can have talent alone--but you’ll inevitably fall short of your potential. Beyond Talent teaches you how to really stand out.
