The High Performers Difference: Hope vs. Evidence

BY DR. RICHARD YOUNG

Novice performers are yet to have convincing evidence of their performance capability. Hope and affirmation are often prioritized when evidence is unconvincing. Experts have learned to reframe hope as a positive prompt for action. Hope triggers learning. 

They ask the next questions:  

1-“What am I not yet convinced of?  

2-What evidence will convince me?” 

They point their actions towards closing the gap. Belief without proof is camouflage. 

Belief with proof is rocket fuel for high performance.

Are you asking the next question and pointing to action?
