Talents are like diamonds need to be shaped in order to sparkle
It has been enriching and energizing to accompany the already 3rd generation of talented people from Swiss Re participating in our leadership development program, “Essentials for Team Leaders”. On their journey to discover themselves and their limitation, fears, values, strengths, they deepened their self-awareness and started to clearly see, understand and value themselves and the diversity of the personalities around them and interact with them the way everyone wants to be treated – non-judgmentally, with wisdom and compassion. What is my key finding? Even the most talented people need space for development, being accepted and given trust and chance to go their authentic way.
