Details & Time Frame
Maximizing the Middle: Why Focusing on Skills and Talents Below the Top 10% Mark Will Yield Returns
The latest trends will have you believe that you should only focus on your strengths as a leader and optimize for that. While that’s great in an ideal world, it doesn’t work in the real world. No one likes to work for a leader who only does the fun stuff and delegates the grunt work.

Whether you are looking to develop and coach leaders in your organization or trying to determine who to invest in, your new target should be the middle, not your top 10%. They are already doing great. Why do they need more? They need recognition and rewards, but they don’t necessarily need development. Why not invest in the “middle 80”: those who can be relied upon on a daily basis to get their job done and don’t cause problems. Help them increase their performers to become your top 10%.

“Maximizing the middle” also refers to where to focus when it comes to competency and skill development. The traditional approach has been to perform a 360 and focus on our weakness. The latest trend has been to capitalize on our strengths. Or better yet, leverage our strengths to bolster our weakness. When you look at 360 results, look at the competencies that fall below the top 10% to determine where to get the most for your investment. Identify the differentiators to develop to help leaders go from “good to great”. If you can help leaders optimize for those skills, you will get higher performance quickly.
