Like you I am always looking for high performers. I want to know their profile and characteristics so that I can spot them more quickly. But I know that there is more… that Shawn Anchor is actually right.
When it comes to performance is not just about the person, their are a lot of other factors too! That includes putting that person in the right role doing the right work and so on. It is also about the team they are working on, as well as leadership and culture. These are just some of the many factors that determine just how much of the person’s potential will be translated into performance.
