A superior leader is a person who can bring
ordinary people together
to achieve extraordinary results.
This isn’t
just true for
leaders.
It’s true for
everyone.
Can you
recognize the
look in
someone’s
eyes that says
talent is
burning inside?
Creativity

Intelligence

Drive

Can you see that – together - each of their
strengths add up to an amazing combination?
Here are four
ways to bring
out the best
in others…
1
Really
pay
attention
What are
others not
saying?
What
does
body
language
tell you?
Have you
developed
the patience
to devote
your full
attention to
others?
2
Magnify
the
quietest
voices
Do you have a
strategy for
bringing out
the insights
some people
are reluctant
to share?
Make it easier
for people to
stay in their
comfort zone
but still
contribute.
3

Mix
things
up
Add an artist
to the
programming
team
Put a 60-yearold on a team
with 23-yearolds
Get a writer
to draw
The best ideas
come from
unique
combinations
4
Look past
your own
biases
SHY
INTELLECTUAL
VIOLIN
PLAYER
Involve others
in a
meaningful
way, and then
watch them
blossom
Spectacular progress requires disparate
ideas and talent to come together in
unprecedented ways
Cultivate
talent in
others, even if
you are not
“the boss”
Make others feel good about themselves
