Hidden Potential (CHES)

Hidden Potential (CHES)

The Science of Achieving Greater Things

This course is only for CHES practitioners.

The author, Adam Grant, shows that progress depends less on how hard you work than how well you learn. Growth is not about the genius you possess—it’s about the character you develop. Good manager’s coaching skills can help bring out and facilitate others’ potential.

Grant reveals how anyone can rise to achieve greater things. He explores how to build the character skills and motivational structures to realize our own potential, and how to design systems that create opportunities for those who have been underrated and overlooked.


This brilliant book will shatter your assumptions about what it takes to improve and succeed.  – Serena Williams, 23-time Grand Slam singles tennis champion
