Getting High Performance out of High Potential People

Getting High Performance out of High Potential People

Caterina Fake, co-founder of Flickr, shares her notes on a presentation at O’Reilly FOO Camp called Getting High Performance out of High Potential People. From what I read from the notes, the presenter, Keoki Andrus of Intuit, delivered a presentation with quite a punch and great content. High potential people is hard to come by – and getting high performance from them can be hard as well. Couple of ways to motivate them:

  • Design and deliver “Right For My Business” solutions
  • Figure out what work activities turn them on and off.
  • Listen and Care.

Keoki also talked about some deadly deficiencies for potential people which should be taken or handled with care.

And then there is a section about top ten ways to build a passion. Unfortunately Keoki went right past the slide, so Caterina couldn’t drop down much notes for it – what a pity. I would be most interested on this topic – passion is the highest attribute on my “hiring the right person” list where it creates the drive and motivation for performance and productivity.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
