Taming and Nurturing Rising Stars
Definition: Rising Star
A person with great talent in search of acceleration.
Story: This manager was smart enough to know what she did not know, though uncertain about taking the risks necessary to accomplish big results. I helped her see the big picture, taught her how to weigh risks against benefits, and toughened her up to deal with the consequences. She is now a member of the C-suite with a full seat at the table.
Nugget: It takes brains, courage, and heart to be a star.
