“Most people think they know what they are good at. They are usually wrong…And yet, a person can perform only from strength.” – Peter Drucker (1909-2005) Business guru
Through a well-documented process and years of research, it is possible to measure Natural Abilities like measuring intelligence. However, unlike an IQ score that defines a level of intelligence, measures of Natural Abilities can assist in defining career paths that would lend themselves to an individual’s most satisfying outcome based on strengths and compatibilities of varied abilities. Understanding your abilities can mean the difference between loving what you do in your chosen career path, and wondering why you ever chose that path. It can also mean the difference between a 4 year degree that takes 6 years or an “on-time” graduation.
When abilities are measured we can learn more about the environment that would be most satisfying for work, the type of problem solver an individual is and the occupations that lend themselves well in that capacity. We also uncover the type of learning channels that allow us to take in information most effectively and how to capitalize on that knowledge. Finally, we learn our most effective communication style and the career paths that fit most comfortably and provide for maximum productivity and performance.
While no single assessment should ever be used to definitively tell you what to do in your life’s endeavors, there are key indicators that can make the journey a lot more fun, effective and satisfying.
