Where talent and passion meet

Where Talent and Passion meet (video)

When we conduct our Talent Factor workshops, we are sometimes asked whether there is work we were all intended for: where our talent and passion meet and where our talents are used to the full.

Is there a job that fufils both our passion and our talent? And… by the way… can we earn good money that way?!

The purpose of a workshop like Talent Factor, of course, is partly to identify that. And each workshop sees participants holding up green, grey and red cards for the parts of their job that they love, tolerate and loathe.

Usually, there is a clear connection between the ‘green cards’, and an individual’s talents. (We explored this in a previous post here).

The sad reality is that this kind of exercise is not nearly done enough, and HR departments the world over remain largely clueless about exactly what a person’s talents are and how they relate to on-the-job happiness.

Where talent and passion meet – a call to arms!

So we would like to share with you Alan Watts’s stirring call-to-arms to honour that area where talent and passion meet in our work, in this moving video:




We hope you enjoyed it, and please take the time to check out Talent Factor, which we believe makes this process scientific, easy, and oh-so-enjoyable.
