Nowadays, the word ‘talent’ has many connotations. Read 10 different texts about talent, and you will probably find 10 different definitions. Who can still see the forest for the trees?
That is why the Talent Passport uses the unique concept of “WORKing talent”.
Your WORKing talents are those natural traits:
WORKing talent = PASSION + APTITUDE = ENERGY + FACILITY
Your WORKing talents are traits you were born with or that you developed unconsciously at a very young age. These traits are very stable and cannot be consciously altered during adulthood.
You can consider the collection of your WORKing talents as a rich breeding ground, your natural potential. But only by investing in your potential will you be able to reap a harvest.
In practice, investing in your potential means acquiring knowledge and skills which allow your talents to flourish. One thing is certain. When you invest in your talents, not only will you optimise your performance, you will also experience true pleasure in doing so.
