IN THIS SUMMARY
Hundred Percenters aspire to achieve the extraordinary, and they give 100% in pursuit of greatness. In Hundred Percenters, Mark Murphy shows leaders how to take average people and unleash their potential. The ideal 100% Leader pushes his or her people to excel and builds a strong emotional connection with them, empowering them to maximize their capacities and experience deep fulfillment. The author’s firm, Leadership IQ, has distilled the critical success factors into a goal-setting methodology called HARD goals, which push people beyond their self-imposed restraints. HARD goals are Heartfelt (they exist to serve something bigger than ourselves), Animated (they are vividly described and presented), Required (they are critical to our continued existence), and Difficult (they will test every one of our limits).
