There are all kinds of sciences that one can learn about: biology, geology, meteorology and also talentology.The Talentology, a training company in Jordan founded in 2008 by Ahmad Al-Assad, offers fun and practical training to different clients from companies to students and fresh graduates. With the belief that people doing the work they love and are good at eventually leads to national development and prosperity, The Talentology aims to help youth acquire the knowledge, skills and positive attitude needed to excel at the workplace by discovering their talents. “Talents are basically like diamonds; they are natural, sometimes disguised as normal stones. That’s why we need to nurture them, and put effort to get beautiful results,” says Ahmad Al-Assad.
In a short web series targeted at youth, Al-Assad takes viewers on a trip to discover their talents and stand out in what they do. Here are some of his tips:
- Everyone has a talent; you just have to allow yourself to discover what yours is by trying out new things. You’ll know you’re good at something if before the activity you’re excited to start, while doing it you lose track of time and once it’s over you can’t wait to do it again. Of course, you should also enjoy the activity and excel at it. Finding out what you enjoy will get you one step closer to discovering your talents.
- Set goals to develop your talent and commit to them.
- Surround yourself with people who are already in the field you want to work in and who share the same enthusiasm. This is your tribe and will help you develop your talent.
