Why do highly motivated people with natural strengths, and who tirelessly dedicate themselves to excellence, fall short of great performance? Why do companies with talent, strong missions, clear strategy, good intentions, and financial pressure to perform, underachieve?
For the last ten years we’ve been working on those questions. We surveyed 7,869 people on 506 teams in 2,088 organizations. We studied behavior, recorded what we saw, and taught thousands more as we tested our theories. Along the way it became undeniably clear that each element of the formula for maximum achievement is altered by a single catalyst: confidence.
Who people are created, desire, work, and even destined to be are so powerfully influenced by confidence that performance either fades into a weak imitation of what’s possible, or delivers precisely what the scientific formula for success is designed to do.
