SUCCESS STORIES TELL OUR STORY
WHAT IS A GENIUS CULTURE?
Culture is continuously created by each individual in an organization. A Genius Culture is one where employees share purposes, values, and behaviors. These behaviors create a culture of collaboration and productivity where the employees and the company grow. In a genius culture employees give their 100% because they enjoy their work.
This is what a genius culture boosts:
When employees believe in their workplace purpose and have clear goals it creates motivation, productivity, and honesty.
Values are standards of behaviors. The 24 characteristics of geniuses are values that are easily agreed upon and used because they are inherent in an individual.
Hard skills are job-specific while soft skills are interpersonal abilities. When team members use their 24 innate genius qualities, they are more driven, solve problems better, and work well with their team members despite personality differences.
This program created real and lasting success on many levels for our organization. Over time our culture became more and more defined around these 24 characteristics. It brought about definitive change for many employees and improved their job responsibilities as well as their performance. It created enthusiasm and even became a hiring tool. New employees saw that working at Pharmacyclics was different, we cared for who they were, and we wanted to help them improve themselves.

Adopting these personality characteristics enables you to operate on a genius level.

WOULD YOUR LIFE BE DIFFERENT
IF YOU WERE A GENIUS?
From all the geniuses in the world, there’s one you should know more about. You.
Genius is inborn—it’s in every person. You have the capability of reasoning like one, acting like one, living like one. This is not wishful thinking; it’s what genius means.
Words matter—we use them to communicate. So, let’s look into the word genius, its origin and meaning. Then, we can start building on genius.
The word genius is made up of gen- and -ius. Gen- means “that which produces or causes”, while -ius means “made of or belonging to.” Just as genes produce the body, or to generate means to cause something to come about, genius is that which creates and produces.
Robert Duggan, Genius Inc. founder, sums it up this way:
The Oxford dictionary defines it as “showing unusually great intelligence, skill or artistic ability.” Looking further into the origin of the word, we see that it also means an “innate, inborn, inherent characteristic.”
These definitions work together to establish the true meaning of genius. This puts genius at reach and makes it practical. It explains why, when you develop your inborn genius characteristics, you can be extraordinary.
Genius Inc. is here to help you discover and develop your inner genius ability so that you can be a more able and competent version of yourself.
If you’ve ever dreamed of greatness, here’s where you start to make it happen.
SPARK YOUR INNER GREATNESS
THE 24 CHARACTERISTICS
OF SUCCESSFUL GENIUSES
Genius is based on a number, but it’s not an IQ score. It’s based on 24 personality traits.
Dr. Alfred Barrios, a psychologist, studied the world’s ultimate geniuses and discovered that they all have specific characteristics in common, these are The 24 Characteristics of Geniuses.
Bob Duggan studied these characteristics in depth. When he realized that we are all born geniuses he immediately put this newfound knowledge to use. With it, he has boosted his success and has helped millions of people.
Just as Bob and many renowned geniuses have applied these characteristics to their fields, you too can apply them to any area of life.
What you do counts. Use all your genius potential to make a difference for the better; for you and for those around you. At Genius Inc. we know it can be done, countless success stories prove it, and you can do it too.
