Marshall Goldsmith says companies overlook the talent they already have:
To meet these challenges, hiring managers are focused on finding talented employees—people with the right skills, knowledge, and experience who can help their companies compete effectively in today’s marketplace.
But the hard truth is that talent alone won’t help you sustain success in today’s business environment. Leaders have to look beyond skills, knowledge, and experience and unleash the latent talent and potential that exists within their organizations if they want to survive and thrive. That potential is what I call genius.
