In my work as a coach with business leaders I’ve discovered four meta-talents that are essential for success. Organizations, and especially teams need all 4 meta-talents to implement work projects and change initiatives.
Everyone has a talent zone. Make a point to find it. Your talent zone is like a jet stream that can propel you and your career into high gear. Once you step on – your career takes on a life of it’s own. So jump on – and enjoy the ride.
Did you know that 8 out of 10 individuals are miscast in their roles at work? Just knowing your talents isn’t enough. Many individuals have great talents but they’re not using them.
To use our talents fully, we must listen to our niggling desires to move on, learn more, explore and be of greater service. Yes, taking the risk is uncomfortable and disconcerting at times – but it’s also life giving, energizing and fun.
You may change jobs, positions and roles – but your talents go with you. Your talents show up at work, with friends, at church, in the community, and when you’re socializing, playing, working or relaxing. Your talents are always with you.
Knowledge workers are the individuals who use their “brains” instead of their “brawn” to get work done. To ensure high performance — you must manage these talented individuals differently than employees of the past. Their talents can help you take your business to the top.
