Tips & Solutions:
I recently found out from a member of our SOAR team that there are collegiate honor societies that have mottos about devotions to learning, one example is "let the love of learning rule humanity." What's important in examining the potential of a talent is to find out the value that they gained from their experiences in previous organizations and how they upheld the motto or goal of the organization through their actions involved.
SUPER JULIE'S TIPS:
A summary of the book, Talent is Never Enough, by John C. Maxwell can be found here.
ZEF: Why do you think it makes it more difficult to expand their talents if they continue with the attitude of 'I know it all?'
SUPER JULIE: Does anyone really know it all? I don't. Aren't we more interested in people who are interested in learning and growing? Those who "know it all" may be quick, but they aren't very bright because in a year or less, something better, smarter, or faster will be developed and they will be left in the dust. Lifetime learners are people you want to find for your team! That will cure your team of the "know it alls."
RICH: Here's a pretty simple rule: If you don't think there is an opportunity to learn something every single day, you don't belong on anyone's team but your own. Let's see how relevant that keeps you.
