Is Your Talent “Hidden”?

I was chatting with a very capable individual yesterday and as we began to zero in on where he wants to go next in his career, he became really quiet. While I didn’t say anything, the expression on my face must have looked like a question because he said, “I just don’t see where I have talent that is deep enough to be marketable.” Instead of telling him that he was missing all the good stuff that he is, I began to brainstorm with him where he has added value in the past and where he would like to do so in the future.

What became pretty obvious to both of us are his unique configuration of skills, experience, and strengths. He has much to offer.

So if you talent appears to be hidden, talk to a friend who may be able to see what you cannot.

Have a great weekend,
Anita
