Talent Coach

To develop people, we have to understand their personality, character and behaviour, the (potential) intelligence and competences. In this, the following aspects are important:

  • The character of people develops over years. Under normal circumstances we can predict the development of character, and with this we can help to develop them more efficiently and effectively. It is all about talents in the brain. Are we successful in talent management on this?
  • Are we clear about the potential of people? Do we develop the skills of people according to their talents?
  • Are we clear about our own personality? Do we understand how this works in coaching others? What strengths and pitfalls does it bring?
  • Behaviour is a choice. Although we do have a preferred style of behaviour, it is easy to adapt. Do we recognize what behaviour is needed at what moment? Are we able to apply the behaviour in the most effective way? 

Thinking about talent management in an organization or in a team is not just thinking about the top talents. We give them special attention, but real talent management is using the full potential of all people in the team. If the team of a football club only focus on a top player, they would have the following consequences:

  • The rest of the players would not develop to reach their full potential
  • The other players would get demotivated and feel insecure

If the whole team is performing at its maximum the special qualities of the stars can be used to the maximum. This is the same in business.

The Masterclass Talent Coach is based on the book of Prof. Jan van Zwieten “Talent Coach”.
