The world of professional sports is filled with athletes who have extraordinary talent and yet end up with mediocre careers. Why? Talent alone is commonplace. What’s special is “talent plus,” the term prolific leadership author John C. Maxwell uses to describe the achievement level of people who maximize their talents. Maxwell says you must add effort to talent to make it matter. He describes 13 attributes people should build within themselves to make the most of their talent. His message will also matter to those who coach, mentor or encourage others. In any business or activity, Maxwell contends, talent “is only a starting point.” How you develop your talent is what counts, and this book will show you how.
