This tale is about a racehorse and its owner, but it offers a lesson for leaders with doubts about the capacity of their people.

Before the Irish Grand National this spring, stallion Hear the Echo thumped along at the bottom of the pack with dismal odds of 33-1, so the owner bet against his own horse, which then proceeded to come in first.

“I thought he was going out for a run to keep himself warm,” said the owner, Michael O’Leary. Little did he know.
