  • Discover Your Talents Workshop

    About Workshop:

    Discover Your Talents Workshop is inspired by the fact that many people don’t know their inner gifts and, very often, don’t have the job that is suited for them. Although career counselling exists for a long time, it has its limits because, it is more linear and narrowly focused than it should be in reality. Our careers are, most of the time, the results of decisions that our young and inexperienced selves have made. We rather choose among proposed career options and consequently unaware of our inner gifts and all the possibilities how to use them in order to have a career that’s really perfect for us.

     

    In reality, choosing your professional path isn’t that simple. Career development, in fact, should rather have cyclical than a linear path. Knowing our inner gifts can be helpful and guide us toward the professional occupation we’re made for doing. This workshop has remedial purpose to open up a possibility so that we can find in an easier way our ideal/good-for-us job, where we would be in the “flow“ and where we would be energised rather than exhausted. For example, gifted, with their inner complexity and multipotentiality, need training, maybe more than the others, in self-discovery and strengths detecting. It is not only designed for the gifted people, but it can be very beneficial to them as it is for the others. This workshop is a part of Strengths-Based, Early and Circular Career Developmental Approach, core values of GiftedLab Consulting. (See Consulting page.)

     

    This Strengths-Based Workshop is about practically applying the knowledge about strengths-based psychology with (gifted) children, teens, and young adults. In order to assure probability of unlocking children’s gifts/potentials, it’s also equally important to work directly with children on the same topics as we do it with parents and educators. The point is to get familiar with Strengths-Based Approach, methods that help develop social-emotional skills and also achieving fluency with knowledge about specificities of social-emotional needs of children of gifted, talented and 2e.

     

    In this workshop, there will be several individualised and group work sections after getting the results of online assessments for all workshop members.

    Purpose:

    • Discover your strengths/inner gifts
    • Find out what is the best way to communicate, work with others
    • Learn how others see you and what is your strength from this perspective
    • Discover what would be your ideal jobs in accordance with your strengths and weaknesses
    • Use synergy of group feedback to get broader picture of possible professional occupations where you would perfectly fit in

    Additional information about Discover Your Talents Workshop:

    + There are many Strength-Based assessments and methods out there. When doing assessments with children, teens, and young adults, I like to work with Strengths Profile and Clifton‘s StrengthsFinder that are grounded in decades of research on strengths psychology.
    + Strengths Profile is an online assessment with 60 strengths in total giving you a unique profile revealing one’s realized and unrealized strengths, learned behaviors, and weaknesses together with job sector recommendations. With all these elements, it is possible to set up an ideal career profile for your child that allows him/her to test & try different options proposed by test results. Children should be above 10 years old to do the assessment.
    + Clifton StrengthsFinder with 34 strengths addresses every stage of development:
    Clifton StrengthsFinder (recommended for parents and children 15 and older)
    Clifton Youth StrengthsExplorer (recommended for children aged 10-14)
    Strengths Spotting (recommended for children younger than 10) is Gallup’s model for finding talents in younger children.

    Gallup institute provided Clifton’s Strengths Finder Assessment for more than 14 million people and assessments for nearly 1 million young people. Their research also shows that focusing on talents and strengths can improve the quality of people’s lives. Otherwise, with Strengths-Based Parenting Assessments, Gallup extends strengths psychology to the most important operating system in the world – the family.
    + We will also find out what careers are good for literary types, extroverts, introverts, scientific “geniuses”, gifted and passionate types of people
    + We will also learn how to take into account our soft skills and our personality into a formula that can bring to us the best professional match…some jobs aren’t simply suitable for certain types of character. This is very important to consider when discussing college and career options.
