Talent Development

Talents are defined by the capacity of an individual to adapt to an environment generating value and earning the counterpart. The width and depth of these talents define the potential of the individual.

Talent development opens two possible paths:

  • Let the talents develop themselves based on their energy and power.
  • Foster talent development by generating a propitious environment.

Unicist Competencies ModelThrough the foundations of the talent development programs you will find a way to generate a propitious environment for the development of your own talents and the talents of others.

The unicist technology, approaching the nature of a reality, is the most effective path to develop talents.


Everybody has a talent. For some people it is easier to get aware of them than for others. Talents are as diverse as the action fields of human beings.

Only when goals are achieved talents can be recognized as such. These achievements are not necessarily contemporaneous with the action. Nobody doubts that Van Gogh and Nikola Tesla were talented. But when the talent largely exceeds the existing paradigms, individuals are marginalized by the environment.

Talents are discovered when people act in their environment. Talents are perceived through the difference compared to others. When an individual is using his talent he is perceived as:

  • Focused: Talent implies the “alignment or neural circuits” to achieve a goal.
  • Natural: When a talent has been trained, it flows naturally in its field of action.
  • Credible: People who use their talents are consistent and therefore credible.
  • Convinced: When adults use their talents they are sure about what they are doing.
  • Self-criticism: The most notorious characteristic of talent is the implicit capacity for self-criticism. Self-criticism is what fosters personal improvement and implicitly develops one’s talents.

The business talents that have been defined as relevant are:

Institutional Talents

  • Business orientation

Personal Development Talents

  • Personal efficacy
  • Personal strategies
  • Growth attitude
  • Continuous improvement
  • Learning attitude


Talent development is based on the premise that makes it possible: CREDIBILITY. Those who do not believe in their talents cannot develop them. The one who does not believe in his value can not deliver value. The one who has the necessary self-confidence to believe in his talents can catalyze its empowerment. To do so, he needs to be focused, credible and secure. Self-criticism sustains the learning process.

People follow those who give. In the field of talent development there is self-fulfilling prophecy: The one who does not believe in his talent can be sure no one will believe in him. The one who believes in his true talents can be sure that others will not only believe in him, but also trust him and follow him.

Unicist talent development is based on profiting from your:

  • Types of thinking
  • Level of ethical intelligence
  • Strategic intelligence

There are three key factors:

  • Respect the taxonomy: “Action -thought/reflection – Action”, since learning processes begin and end in actions.
  • Talent development is based on the empowerment of “freedom-responsibility”. The more complex the problems, the higher the ambiguity and the higher the learning orientation must be.
  • Focus on result measurement. Talents are such, because they deliver added value.
