    Morten Hansen: Great at Work
    Morten Hansen is a management professor at University of California, Berkeley. He is the coauthor with Jim Collins of the New York Times bestseller Great by Choice and the author of the new book Great at Work: How Top Performers Do Less, Work Better, and Achieve More*.
    Key Points
    The Six Tactics:

    Carve out the 15
    Chunk it
    Measure the soft
    Get feedback
    Dig the dip
    Confront the stall point

    Other Points:

    Focus on one skill you want to prove.
    Meetings should only be for debate, not status updates.
    Having a coach is great, but often you can coach yourself if you only focus on one thing at a time.
