How can we overcome the great paradox where if we are good at the job, they promote us into not doing that job any longer?
Is the Nine Grid Box a good answer to such a dilemma?
Prof. Adrian Furnham, Professor of Psychology, University College London, provides his own solution: a new model, much more accurate in measurement of data and “agile” strategies.
In his book “High Potential”, he identifies 6 very specific characteristics of talented people.
How can these qualities be trained? Increasing Self-Awareness and helping talents in finding their strengths and working on mindset: real talent doesn’t have a fixed mindset “what you see is what you get” but the opposite one, where knowledge and hard work make skills grow and improve. Last but not least: being aware of the Dark Side of talent will help avoid derailment throughout the whole path to success. A recruiter must select one, not only select in: some features may be appealing but there’s always the “too much of a good thing” and the dark side to consider.
