Talent Unleashed

The question: What single activity is most effective in unleashing human talent and improving organizational performance? 

The answer: Holding three key conversations. What these conversations are, their history, and the principles that differentiate and make them powerful create an engaging and practical presentation. Audiences learn specific steps they can immediately implement with great results.

Based on the soon-to-be-released book Talent Unleashed co-authored with Shawn Moon, Todd Davis and Michael Simpson.
