To generate your own unique Talent passport, you must complete an online questionnaire. This allows you to discover your passions and the approach to work that is easiest for you. Based on your answers, we compare you with all the other professionals in the database. In your Talent Passport, you will find two “photos” of yourself. The first photo shows your passions, and second photo shows your aptitude.
Not only do individuals have natural potential; teams do too. To make your team's unique Talent Passport, each team member completes the online questionnaire. In the Team Talent Passport, you will find two “photos” of your team which, together with the anonymous individual results, can be used to deduce the team talents.
WORKing talent = PASSION + APTITUDE = ENERGY + FACILITY
Exactly what these two photos say about your WORKing talent is best discussed with a certified Talent Passport Coach. A certified Talent Passport Coach is trained to accurately interpret your photos, together with you. There are so many different WORKing talents that they cannot simply be enumerated in a list. Unfortunately, most talent methods try to fit your unique talents into a condensed list.
The Talent Passport was inspired by the ‘Needs Theory’ as developed by Profs. Henry A. Murray, William Mc Dougall, William James and others, and by the ‘Cognitive Styles Theory’ as researched by Dr. Eva Cools (PhD) and Prof. Herman Van Den Broeck from the Vlerick Business School.
Pontis Management School developed a test to accurately determine the position of the strength of your drives and cognitive styles relative to that of other professionals. The calculation of the results and the positioning was developed in collaboration with the University of Antwerp.
