Most types of sports equipment like a golf club nike air

 , a tennis racquet or a baseball bat have a
certain spot that, if the ball hits it, will give the player the optimal result.
Hitting this sweet spot yields a long drive down the fairway, a swift crosscourt
return or home run swing. Every sport has a sweet spot of some type. If you have
experienced it, you know when you hit the sweet spot, you barely feel it. The
ball goes where you want it to go – even further and faster. Doesn't get any
better than that! But what about the sport of leadership? Aren't we professional
athletes in our own right? Those in professional sports practice 90+ percent of
the time and actually "play for keeps" less than 10 percent of the time. As
professional leaders, we are almost always "playing for keeps." So it's
particularly important that we take time to plan and ensure that we are
optimizing our sweet spot. Did you know the average person possesses between 500
and 700 different skills and abilities? A common defining moment for people is
finding that skill or ability that's right in their sweet spot. As leaders, we
have a huge opportunity to help our employees find their sweet spots, too. The
first step is ensuring a good fit between an employee's natural abilities and
interests and the requirements of the job. This would ensure the "highest and
best use" of their talents toward the realization of our high-definition vision.
Wouldn't we just love having every single team member working in their sweet
spot? We would always be in "the zone" and work would feel like play. Our
ability to match sweet spots to job requirements is the best predictor of job
success and, ultimately, of excellent performance. It all starts with a moment
to plan for the use of talent on our team. Let's not forget about ourselves in
this matching process. Gaining insights into our own sweet spot as leaders helps
us better determine how to design roles and deploy the talent on our team. For
example, if my sweet spot is conceptually designing complex deals, I better
ensure I have a strong analyst on my team. If my sweet spot is analyzing lots of
details and numbers, I want some conceptual, big picture thinkers on my team.
Want to know an easy way to find your sweet spot? Look at the intersection of
these two questions: 1. What am I absolutely passionate about? 2. Which tasks
are very easy and natural for me to perform? Most of us vividly remember the
moment we found our professional sweet spot. Others told us we made it look
easy, that we really excelled and we looked like we were having a ball. Think of
the last time when others made these comments to you. What were you doing? Like
finding any sweet spot, it's worth hitting these questions around for awhile and
practicing our answers before we can serve up a winner. Ralph V. Gilles
understands this process. He dropped out of college and was spending most of his
time, by his own admission, slacking in his parents' basement air

 , eating granola, watching "Dukes of Hazard"
reruns and lamenting the sorry state of automobiles being made in America.
Growing up, Gilles was typical of most boys who played with Hot Wheels and
Formula 1 model cars. But, as a teenager, he also was extremely talented in
sketching vehicles. In fact, his aunt wrote a letter to then Chrysler Chairman
Lee Iacocca, saying he should hire her 14-year-old nephew. A Chrysler executive
responded, recommending three design schools. Soon afterward, however, the
letter was lost and forgotten. Meanwhile, the car-crazy Gilles completed high
school and enrolled in college to study engineering, but dropped out quickly.
His reason: "I was in a funk and was really not sure I wanted to be an
engineer." As he continued his granola, "Dukes of Hazard" routine down in the
basement, Ralph's older brother, Max, recalled the letter from Chrysler. He
remembered that one of the recommended schools was Detroit's College for
Creative Studies. Upset to see Ralph wasting his time and talent, Max pushed his
brother to apply to the local school although the application deadline was only
a week away and would require 10 sketches. At that point, the whole family
became involved, making Ralph coffee so he could complete his
sketches nike air

 , cheering him on and helping wherever they
could. By the end of the week, Ralph was covered in pencil lead, but the
sketches were complete, so his mother sent the packet to the school by overnight
delivery. Today, Ralph V. Gilles is recognized as the innovator of the Chrysler
300 sedan and the Dodge Magnum Wagon I in addition to being responsible for the
2002 Jeep Liberty, 2003 Dodge Viper SRT-10 and several concept cars. Dubbed as
the Chrysler Group's newest darling, Gilles has earned numerous national and
international accolades. He has since been promoted to Design Director for
Chrysler. If we consistently misidentify sweet spots, we will find our team
stuck in a funk, like Gilles. If we correctly match employee's sweet spots to
the job requirements, we will all be living the sweet life! Today's fast-paced,
efficiency-minded organizations make it especially challenging for leaders to
always ensure a good fit. It's common to find employees picking up the slack for
positions that have been eliminated. If personnel reductions aren't executed
carefully, the remaining employees can find themselves underemployed and
consumed by "leftover" tasks that drain their time but don't tap their minds.
These situations start a cycle of "lowest and worst use" of talent, resulting in
a downward spiral of self-doubt, anxiety and frustration. If you've ever
experienced this, you know it feels more like a sour patch than a sweet spot. To
prevent this cycle and the resulting decline in team performance, we can plan
the work for our teams to optimize sweet spots by: – Combining tasks that
require similar skill levels, so we can m.
