VIDEO: How High-Performance Leaders Achieve Remarkable Results

W. Grant Gregory, Deloitte & Touche

W. Grant Gregory is the retired chairman of Deloitte & Touche and founder of DoubleClick. His success long preceded, and continued after, DoubleClick’s sale to Google in 2007, which he attributes to the high-performing teams he assembled and led. But how does one learn to identify talent that will thrive and excel? For Gregory, it meant understanding the key traits of the top performers in that particular role, and being absolutely focused on hiring talent with those traits.

In his Tugboat Institute Summit talk, Gregory describes how Don Clifton, his longtime mentor and the creator of StrengthsFinder, helped him adopt principles of positive psychology and strength-based leadership in the identification and development of talent at scale across large and complex organizations.
