How Does Talent Ark Unlock Success In You and Your Team ?
Talent Ark believes everyone has the right to succeed. To unwrap this crucial question and unlock success, we need to first realize that the potential in each of us and our organisations is often hidden beneath or clouded by the heaps of endless urgent tasks, experiences with people around us, expectations, successes and failures from our work, and comments from bosses, staff, colleagues, clients, family and friends.
How Highly Should We Think Of Ourselves ?
Without an objective assessment, we tend to think of ourselves higher than what we really are or lower than what we should. Think too lowly of ourselves: we lose our confidence in what we are actually good at; thus losing the battle before it starts. Think too highly of ourselves: we enter into oblivion which is the pitfall of many entrepreneurs and executives today.
Either way, the lack of accurate awareness of ourselves and our community, hides the key to success in our lives. The key to unlock success thus lie in an accurate objective awareness of ourselves. This enables us to maximise our strengths and minimise our weaknesses. It also helps us become better communicators, make better decisions, increase our effectiveness and productivity and become more strategic in our learning and development.
So What If We Become Self-Aware ?
Becoming self-aware is an important first step to becoming successful. What we do with our discovery determines the outcome. The danger of knowing ourselves and our team and doing nothing about it to improve, is that we can become too comfortable and complacent and thus fall into the same pits each time. This is what some of us call “self-sabotage”.
What Is Success ?
The motivation to do anything about ourselves or our team is success. But by “success”, we do not mean just becoming rich and famous albeit desirable. Successful living may or may not make you the next richest person on earth; but it certainly means to make your years on earth count for something to you and your community.
How Can We Help ?
At Talent Ark, we help unlock the potential in you and your organisation through providing practical scientific assessments, analysis, benchmarking, consultation, training and coaching in the five sciences of the personality and talent spectrum: Behaviour, Motivator, Acumen, Emotional Intelligence and Competence.
All these can be carried out in the form of group workshops such as team building workshops or one-to-one consultations.
What Are The Five Sciences?
Success in life, work and relationships stems from understanding and having a sense of self – of deeply comprehending who you are, what you do and how you do it. The research-based, validated TTI Success Insights® assessment we use at Talent Ark measures Behaviors in five behavioral dimensions using the DISC theory. DISC measures Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance and was first developed by William Moulton Marston. Our Behaviors/DISC assessment is key in helping people understand HOW they behave and their ability to interact effectively with others in work and life, as well as how they respond to the following challenges:
- Problems and challenges
- Influencing others
- Pace of environment
- Rules and procedures
While Behaviors illustrate the HOW of our actions and decision-making, Motivators explain the WHY behind your actions and passions. Motivators, based on Eduard Spranger’s theory of human motivation, are the windows through which an individual views the world. These intrinsic motivations explain the key driving forces about someone’s on-the-job performance and why they act a certain way. TTI Success Insights’ assessments measuring Motivators examine the relative prominence of six basic interests (or Motivators; ways of valuing life) and
- Theoretical — The discovery of truth
- Utilitarian — Money and what is useful; ROI
- Aesthetic — Form and harmony
- Social — An inherent caring for people; helping others
- Individualistic — Personal power, influence and renown
- Traditional — A system for living
