Exceptional Talent


As an exceptional talent – whether gifted or not – you may not automatically find your way in life and work. You can experience a big gap between what you need and what you encounter. This richly illustrated book will help you create your own path. Not by adapting, but by attuning instead. The book ends with portraits of exceptional talents and an inventor who has gone down this road before you.

A guide for the gifted, the inventors and other birds of a rare feather

Frans Corten is one of the pioneers in the field of career coaching for the gifted. His Werk en Waarde (Work and Value) practice has been around since 2001. In this book, he has collected all insights and tips from the past 20 years. The book addresses the problems encountered by exceptional talents and what causes them. This was very relatable for the proofreaders. He also discusses coping strategies. Adjusting too much is not a good idea. Clear profiling, with attunement to the other, in particular. Establishing your own business is often worth considering. The book shows great commitment to the subject, it is both fundamental and practical and gives the reader plenty of room to make their own choices.

For Frans, it does not matter whether or not someone has taken an IQ test: those who can relate to the profile can also benefit from the methods and solutions described.
