Developing Potential - No Pain No Gain

The notion of exceptional achievement as being the product of individual pursuit should be closely examined. Institutions and organizations must reflect on how human potential can be "capitalized" to create the opportunity for real innovation. Without time, the right atmosphere and the ability to fail potential is often lost. Cultural legacy and the 10 thousand hour rule are just a few of the concepts Gladwell addresses in his new book Outliers - The Story of Success. From Mozart to Picasso to Fleetwood Mac, Malcolm's argument that exceptional outcomes are a product of the environment is compelling. In his theories lie many of the solutions to attaining great achievement for industries and people. Collaboration, openness and patience are the stuff of how we can embrace the potential available today to all via the revolution. See his brief talk at a recent conference to learn more.
