There are three types of talents that makes up a person: Striving, Thinking, and Relating talents. Each person has a unique mix of these which makes up their “talent DNA”, and even at the entry-level, these natural talents are present and measurable. Research has shown that matching an individual’s talent profile to the position’s profile can dramatically increase the success and happiness of a person in that role. Essentially, you’re hiring someone to do what they naturally do well on a daily basis. Come to this talk for an in depth look into these talent groups. We’ll walk through three different job archetypes (software developer, superhero, tax auditor) and see how the talent profiles differ as well as how to build them.
