Star Performance: Future-Proof Your Career in the Innovation Economy with Yen-Lu Chow

Learning Resources

Bell Labs was the center of innovation in the technology space in the seventies and eighties. Researchers working at Bell Labs are credited with the development of radio astronomy, the transistor, the laser, the photovoltaic cell, the charge-coupled device (CCD), information theory, the Unix operating system, and the programming languages B, C, C++, and S. Nine Nobel Prizes have been awarded for work completed at Bell Laboratories. These are very impressive achievements for any organization.

A study was conducted on the work culture at Bell Labs, and what separated the star performer from the average performer at Bell Labs, what was once the most prestigious place of innovation to work anywhere in the world. The answer to this question of what makes a star has since made waves around the world.

Yen-Lu led a discussion on this study that attempted to answer these key questions

* What separates the star from the average performer?
* Are star qualities innate, or can they be learned?
* Could a program be designed to turn average performers into stars?

He showed that the qualities that make up a star back then are more relevant than ever as we enter into the age of VUCA - and where the rate of innovation has accelerated as the pandemic has taken hold.
