I was struck by an article in a recent issue of Rolling Stone Magazine. It was about George Martin, the legendary producer of the Beatles. What really registered with me was how he was able to uniquely harness the collective talent of four individuals to co-create music that would change the world. Martin was able to see potential in a way others couldn’t. He specifically ……
- Challenged them by suggesting the possibility
- Held to his standard of excellence
- Tapped into available talent to get the right person at the right time (Ringo replacing Peter Beck)
- Identified how to maximize individual talent while simultaneously creating the space for others to contribute.
George Martin just passed away at age 90 — but his talent development legacy lines on. Enjoy the read!
