Do you recognize the situations below from your everyday life?
Then it is perfectly normal.
These are situations we encounter in our work with talent development.
I can contribute more / I’m being held back
I do a good job. My colleagues and managers are very happy with my efforts, but I still feel that something is missing. I’m not happy. That nice feeling when I get a kick out of delivering has not been there for a long time. I want to do more and I know that I can. My talent can do more!
How can I bring my talent into play?
You can contribute more, with insight into your own talents.
I want to evolve / I’m about to be overtaken
I go to work happy and think I have some interesting tasks. I receive praise and recognition for my work and clients ask me for advice. Maybe it’s time to try something new – but what should it be? My current job has developed in relation to the tasks I have solved, but I have not really tried that many different jobs.
How can I tell I can do more?
With insight into your talents, you can put words to your potential.
My vocation is something else / I’ve been sidetracked
My skills are not being used. At work, I don’t have the opportunity to do one of the “I’m best at” every day. The work doesn’t motivate me and it’s not fun. I think I’m trying to do the right thing, but I keep getting new tasks that don’t make sense to me.
My manager is stalling me -by promising something, that he never delivers on. How long will I wait? Are there others who will get the opportunity or is themanager not seeing the value of my skills?
Am I so focused on my tasks that I forget to bring my talents into play?
The more talents you can bring into play, the more job satisfaction you will have and the more enterprising you will become.
I’m not happy
I miss colleagues I can talk to about professional and personal dilemmas. I need to talk about something other than work during the day. I don’t feel appreciated for the way I do things. I find that we often misunderstand each other.
How can I get my talents into play so that others value me?
The better you know your and your colleagues’ talents, the more confidence and well-being you will experience.
