What are my unique skills that expand my human capital? I wonder …
One of the roles I fill at Colman Knight is Trainer/Teacher/Mentor. In this role I source new talent to fill all of the roles and accountabilities for the company to meet its purpose. Recently I asked everyone to complete their own unique abilities assessment in support of a conversation with me about their skills, interests and desired placement in the firm. The process for reflection and discovery was illuminating for everyone. I was also struck by how easy it was to sit with another and mirror back their own discoveries of worth and talent. When was the last time you pondered your unique skills?
Unique talent is a vital part of Human Capital. It holds your natural ability; you have extraordinary capacity for imaginative creation, original thought and discovery. Your unique abilities enable you to earn income, offer valuable energy to the world, relate well with others, and evolve your life. To discover (or affirm) your unique talents, answer these questions:
- What activities feel like play?
- When do you receive the most compliments?
- When does time fly by and results blossom?
- When do you feel most fully alive?
- What are your unique talents rarely found in others?
Now, with those answers, where can your human capital come to life?
