This new Coaching Natural Talent e-book gives a clear introduction to the talents we normally take for granted. It then provides a simple step by step process to identify or review talents and how to develop them into key strengths.
This is normally seen as a gift or an area of life where we naturally excel. This enables us to take pleasure in possessing this special skill and enjoy knowing we are good at something. We do however tend to take our talents for granted. This is because it’s more or less inherent in us from a young age, so we do not always recognize their true value unless it’s being pointed out by somebody else.
In 2008, Frederic Hudson published a paper ‘The context of coaching’ where he discussed the difficulty society now has to connect the different chapters of life, from childhood, through to adulthood and onto our elder years. He felt our perception of the world had slowly but surely shifted from a stable, orderly, steady state model, to an unstable, disorderly change driven one.
Being aware of our skills and natural talent helps us navigate these changes and acquire the ‘know-how’ needed to succeed, no matter what life throws at us.
