Mark is “wizardly” smart
Most people are considered smart because they accumulate truths, facts or experience. This level of “smart” is enough to run most companies.

Perhaps what's most impressive, is how quickly Mark catches up to speed, begins thinking alongside of you and then shakes the foundation of what you view as possible. Having just one Mark around is a competitive advantage most organizations are starved for.
