Everyone’s A 10!

I believe everyone is a “10” at something.

There are tasks each person is gifted at and they excel when they do it.  The problem is, most leaders are poor at bringing out the “10” in us, or worse…  putting people in places where their “10” is only a “3.”

It took several years for my assistant, Marti and me to figure out who did what best and who should do it the most.  We are still discovering it, but business improved once we started doing what we were 10’s at.  And quit doing what we were 2’s, 4’s or even 7’s at. Why settle for a 7 when you can win with a 10 in place.

How are you doing in that department?  Maybe those lousy workers you have in your organization aren’t that lousy.  Perhaps they are 10’s at something you have them ill-fitted for.

Brett Favre started his professional career as an Atlanta Falcon.  But his inability to work the system Coach Jerry Glanville  had for the Falcons doomed him to be traded after just one year …to Green Bay where he became:  well, “Brett Favre.”   Jerry Glanville lasted only a few more years and went on to become:  another poor coach who couldn’t make the Atlanta team win.

Failing to bring out the 10 in your people points to your own failure – not theirs.
