Your Company's Hidden Talents

Posted by Nicki Peasley Share Your Voice


In this Entrepreneur blog, Brad Cresenzo reflects on Jeremy Lin's Cinderella story and how it translates to business. 

The moral of this New York Knicks story?  Anyone can be a star.  

Employers, take heed...what 3rd string player in your organization might be ready to shine-- with just a bit of encouragement and guidance?

Cresenzo's tips for finding the Jeremy Lin on your team:

1) Look for the bright stars in dim constellations. (Might talent be hiding in overlooked parts of your business?)

2) Sometimes 2nd best is just as good.  (Forget past records and accolades-- who's is ready to rise up now?)

3) Llisten to your employees. (Could an employee be misplaced in his/her current position?  Where does he/she want to shine?)
