The End of Average
Unlocking Our Potential by Embracing What Makes Us DifferentBook - 2017
The assumption that comparative metrics like school grades, personality test results, or performance review ratings can reveal something meaningful about our potential is so ingrained in our consciousness that we seldom question it. That assumption, is spectacularly wrong. No one is average. Not you. Not your kids. Not your employees. It's a mathematical fact with enormous practical consequences. But while we know people learn and develop in distinctive ways, these patterns of behavior are lost in schools and businesses that have been designed around the mythical "average person."
