Are high performers born or made?

Are high performers born or made? A common but useless question. The question should be what are a person’s talents and how can we unlock their potential? The world treats everyone in linear way. “If you don’t fit, you’re fit for nothing at all”.
A formulaic approach to hiring and development often isn’t the answer. We teach our children to pass exams. We don’t help them discover what they’re really good at. Exploring different ways of hiring and creating the environment for talent to show itself is what every leader should be thinking about.
