In difficult times it often helps to reflect on your own ‘basis’. We call this basis our intrinsic talents. Some also speak of ‘charisma’.
By this, I mean a concentration on what we are really good at, what makes us who we are. But very often we have distanced ourselves from this base. Either we took a career path that was purely objective and rational or we let other people steer us in a direction that was not quite optimal for us.
I invite you to take a closer look your true talents. Simple methods will help you to do so.
Often, we do not recognize our own basis because activities related to it are so easy for us that we do not recognize them as talent. "It feels so easy, it can't be anything special!"
An essential part of our work with people (when we work as business coaches) is to make these talents visible. Because as soon as they are visible, they can be developed. It is very interesting to realize that this supposed step forward is actually only a step back to our own roots, but also one that brings us forward in all areas of life. And often a fundamental change arises during this step, in a professional, financial, and private sphere.
My message: I invite you to take a closer look your true talents. Simple methods will help you to do so. Sometimes it is simply asking friends and acquaintances: "Where do you see my greatest strengths?” This can also be done by mail to many friends. Return feedback as well. A so-called "Appreciative Inquiry" i.e. a focus on good things, on strengths and talents of people and organizations can help a lot, especially in difficult times.
Second tip: if you have ever done any kind of personality profile, dig it out again. Have a look what this profile said about you. Often statements only make sense when you have a new personal background. "Connecting the dots!" Connect your talent points. Third tip: Talk regularly with people who don't know you so well but can ask good questions. We can also support you in this. In these difficult times, we can offer you very interesting opportunities at a very reasonable price to gain valuable insights into your own talents and strengths through coaching or personality profiles. We are offering the Talent and Motivation Analysis (TMA) for private individuals with a 60% discount on the list price until June, for example, to enable you to reflect on important issues in a challenging environment.
