A day to celebrate what is right about others. What we need today is the ability to see what is good about others – what they do well. Dr. William E. Hall, grandfather of positive psychology and co-founder of Talent Plus, Inc., believed every person has talent and spent his career focused on individuals’ strengths and wondering, “What would the world be like if everyone had the opportunity to know what they were good at and could spend more time engaged in those things?”
“...How do you make a difference? If you're going to make a difference, the very first thing is you've got to find out what you can do. You've got to find out your talents. So all of my students made studies on people, and we found that the most significant thing in determining what you do with your talents, the most significant thing is the relationships you build with other people...”
“We believe that one of the things needed most today is knowledge about people – why they behave as they do and how relationship can be used in a positive sense for the good of people in general.”
We are all a part of a tradition committed to the realization of Dr. Hall’s dream: a world in which each person becomes significant by fully optimizing their potential as a result of good relationships. Dr. Hall focused on the fact that people utilize only 15 percent of their potential. He knew we could make a significant difference by helping individuals develop their talents more fully. He believed, as we do, that people are the most important asset of any organization. Talent Plus is committed to each person’s continuous growth and recognize that each person’s individual talents, initiative and performance shape our future.
