Toronto – February 20, 2012 – The meteoric rise of Jeremy Lin as the starting point guard for the New York Knicks has been nothing short of amazing. As an undrafted basketball player out of Harvard, Lin had never played more than 20 minutes in a NBA game before two weeks ago. All of the sudden, the Knicks can't lose and Lin is playing unbelievably well. 'Linsanity' people are calling it. No one anticipated this would happen. Lin was initially inserted into the starting lineup because the Knicks were decimated by injuries. The coaching staff always knew he had potential, but it was a result of injuries that got him his chance. Do you have a Jeremy Lin in your organization? Someone who has had all of the right training and education, all of the right potential, but is just waiting in the wings for their chance at success? Have you given them that chance? You should always be looking for ways to give these employees an opportunity to live up to their potential. Lin waited patiently for his chance, and now he is taking advantage of it. Who knows how long it will last, but who cares? The Knicks have won every game Lin has started. How would that success translate in your organization-A new customer? A larger deal? An innovative new product offering? Find your Jeremy Lin, take a chance and see what they can do. Only then can you truly know how much talent they really have.
