Dr. Hall with his students 1959.
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?” We encourage the world to come together Monday, August 6, and celebrate what you are good at and celebrate what those around you do well. You’ll see people differently and it just might change your perspective. We hope so. Everyone wants to feel significant and when you feel the most significant is when you’re recognized for things you do well and enjoy. And when everyone has a chance to feel significant, it really changes things – families get better, organizations get better and take better care of their end users – whether patients, customers or guests.
Monday, August 6, Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts will declare the day, Global Talent Day. Talent Plus associates and client partners will join the members of Dr. Hall’s family in celebrating this day of significance together. We’re located in Lincoln, Nebraska, but we work with individuals all over the globe and so why limit this to Nebraska? Join with us in celebrating Global Talent Day! Celebrate with your family, a not for profit where you work or volunteer, at your organization. What’s important at the end of the day is that you celebrate what you’re good at and what others do well. You’ll make people feel significant in the process!
