Why is that some individuals are consistently high performers? How do they keep performing in varying situations, organisations and contexts? Why can some people just not seem to be able to crack that code, and why do some individuals perform exceptionally well in certain organisations but not in others?
This fresh new book challenges current thinking about the war for talent and the role intelligence plays in high-performance sport and business.
Over 3,000 profiles of elite corporate managers and professionals have been studied to find the answers to why certain individuals consistently get exceptional results and why great talent doesn't transfer across teams and businesses.
Fit considers real-life cases and well-known examples of spectacular successes and failures through the lens of the Hogan Personality Tools.
This shows how elite performance is dependent on three things: understanding what role your behaviours are best suited to, what culture you perform your best in and how you're likely to derail your career.
Armed with this knowledge, this innovative text allows you to connect the dots in your past performances and prepares you to find roles, organisations and teams that best fit you – opening the door to elite performance.
Instead of talent management and changing behaviour, look to Fit as a key to your performance improvement.
