"To her lover a beautiful woman is a delight,
To a monk a distraction
To a mosquito a good meal."
The learning is that your view is dependent on your beliefs. If you believe there is talent, there is....if you believe your team lacks talent...they will. Why because your team will grow from your confidence in them, they will flourish with your belief in them. Understand your power and use it to bring out the talent in your team.
