Can You Identify Three Talents (Individual and/or Collective)?
When asked to identify talents, respondents diverged in the characteristics and nature of what is a talent. The answers can be classified in three categories: personality, knowledge and group, as presented in Table 3, with the number of references (refs.) made by the respondents.
A different categorization also emerged when talent was projected as an individual or an organization. Table 4 presents the top 5 talents identified by the respondents for each category.
These categories contain a set of characteristics, competencies and capacities of diverse nature that define a talent and that allow to perceive it as an important resource for the organization. A resource with unique value, which allows in theoretical terms an approach to resource-based theory . Based on this theory, talent can be perceived as a resource that is an asset, which will add value to the organization and mark it in a distinctive way [16, 25, 37].
The respondents also adopted a perspective of talent as a natural gift, with the most important 10 being: communication (27 refs.); drawing (15 refs.); painting (13 refs.); dance (12 refs.); resolving conflicts (10 refs.); writing (7 refs.); musical skill (16 refs.); sports fitness (14 refs.); leadership (16 refs.); persistence and overcoming (22 refs.).
