I used to know a project manager that employees secretly called “the Tweaker.” This nickname was not an oblique reference to a drug problem, but it was perhaps just as unflattering. Nobody wanted to work for the Tweaker because doing so was an act of self-destruction. You see, nothing was ever good enough for her. You could stay up all night, drinking buckets of coffee to power through as you overhauled your presentation to meet her last-minute changes, and it still wouldn’t be quite right. That’s because the Tweaker would always find something else to tweak. She was constantly praised by upper management for her perfectionism, meanwhile every single one of her employees was speeding toward the nearest off-ramp on the expressway to crazy town.  

“Best “Best book launch event ever,” was the most frequent comment “Best“ Best book launch event ever,” was the most frequent comment shared from attendees on March 14, 2017, at the SOLD OUT Leadovator Showcase and bestselling book –  The Innovation Revolution – release and signing event in Raleigh, NC.

This event was NOT a book-signing as usual. Instead, it was a shared experience to demonstrate the power of unleashing #hiddengenius to change the world.  That’s exactly what we did.
