The Potential PrincipleA Proven System for Closing the Gap Between How Good You Are And How Good You Could Be
Mark Sanborn's newest keynote presentation The Potential Principle is a preview of his new book being released in Fall 2017. How do you keep getting better when you're already the best? Or what happens when complacency, outdated thinking or weariness stunts performance? What do you do when growth stalls, or when your team is working below its true potential?
THE ANSWER: You've got to pursue your true potential.
Today's top performers and top companies often experience a crisis once they've moved into the number one spot. It is easy to become complacent and rest on past accomplishments while competitors are biting at your heels.
When you're Number One, there is nobody to emulate. You either keep increasing your lead or run the risk of being overtaken by Numbers Two through Five.
Mark Sanborn has worked with many of America's best companies. That's because he has the ability to motivate and teach simple, proven and highly effective ways of thinking and doing that keep individuals and organizations moving forward and gaining new ground.
Not only has he learned from working with the best—some 2600 clients—but he's learned what doesn't work, too, and he can help you change your thinking and supercharge your performance.
