What is talent?
A talent is a recurring and specific natural capability that is unique to the individual, which can be intentionally developed and productively employed
A talent is an inexhaustible source of energy embedded in each individual, which when harnessed enables the person to produce extraordinary results and demonstrate exceptional performance
Our Research Framework
Our research is the culmination of more than 30 years of research into human talent design - the inherent talent architecture innately embedded in each individual.
After working with thousands of individuals, we finally answered the question "Does each individual have a specific and unique repertoire of natural capabilities embedded in them?," with a resounding, "Yes!"
These insights were not developed in the safe and secure world of academic research. They were birthed, developed, pummeled, proven, tried and tested in the rough and tumble of the corporate business world.
The integrity of our research stood and withstood the harshness of the marketplace (which often is ruthless and unforgiving), working with CEOs, Directors and Business Owners, who had little or no time for academic pontification.
Their bottom line was “If it doesn’t work, it doesn’t work”, even if all the academics and management gurus at Oxford, Harvard, Stanford (or where ever) said otherwise.
The CEOs and Senior Managers we worked with were looking for definitive insights and reliable inputs, about the passion, talents and innate strengths of their executives. They came to us often tired, fed up and frustrated with the nebulous conclusions psychometrics gave them.
"How can we develop or deploy people in their strengths, if the results we secure from MBTI or Strengths Finder or DISC (or those several psychometric tools out there) are so inconsistent, incoherent and unstable?" is the question we were often asked.1
But each time the CEO and the Senior Management team undertook our Zone diagnostics, they were delighted that finally they could have definitive and strategic data2 about their executives, that they could bet on!
As Lawrence Bossidy, CEO of Allied Signal once said: "At the end of the day you don't bet on strategy - you bet on people".
Our research into Zone diagnostics now enables you to precisely "bet on people!" Every single time!
2 Zone diagnostics provides definitive data relating to the specific inherent capabilities embedded in the person, which can be honed, developed and employed to become the individual's passion and delight. It also provides precise data relating to the leadership strengths and/or the leadership blindspots of a Manager/Supervisor. Importantly, it provides practical data to the CEO/Manager/Supervisor about how to optimally leverage any executive's productive performance. Unlike psychometrics, Zone diagnostic conclusions are definitive, deterministic and developmental.
