    Ok so I don’t just sit around comment on other people’s blogs all night but I think this is my third comment on YOUR stuff tonight. Loved “Leadership and Self Deception” and have read “The Five Dysfunctions” and must add one to your list…”The Talent Code.” I read a ton of books every year and like many of them but this is a game changer. It tells you how excellence occurs (biologically speaking) in a way you can actually use.

    Hope you find it as exciting as I did.
