The Secret of World-Class Performers

Geoff Colvin deconstructs the myth of "born talent" to show that natural abilities don’t explain great performance. Whether it’s Warren Buffet, Apolo Ohno or Yo-Yo Ma, the key to their success is something called "deliberate practice."

The MP3 recording and slides from this event as well as a book summary for Talent is Overrated will be available to listen to or download from your Online Library immediately after check-out.
