Are You An Octopus on Roller Skates?

"Talent without discipline is like an octopus on roller skates. There's plenty of movement, but you never know if it's going to be forward, backwards, or sideways. " - H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

How often have you met or worked with people who are talented in amazing ways but still can't get anything done? How often have you realized YOU are talented but still not getting the important things done? Having talent is not enough. In addition to talent it is critical that we know how - and when - to use our talents to achieve a stated goal or need.

Leaders know how to selectively use their own talents to achieve amazing results. Good leaders know how to tap into the talent of individual members of their team. And, great leaders know how to combine the unique talents of different members of their team and guide them to work together as a single unit.

Think . . . and act . . . like a leader!
