"The skills of the person who likes to take risks are improving"
Stating that talent is generally congenital and skill is acquired, that is, acquired qualities, Prof. Nevzat Tarhan stated that "To live in life is to take risks. The skills of the person who likes to take risks are improving. In order for a person to like to take risks, they must feel safe and their ideas have to be respected." Stating that the talents of an intelligent but lazy cannot improve, Tarhan said that "Talent develops in the person who can dream. Childhood dreams remind us of our own inclination towards talents. Pay attention to what your child is dreaming about. Those dreams can be related to their abilities."
Prof. Nevzat Tarhan stated that talent is generally congenital and skill is acquired, in other words, acquired characteristics, and explained the topic of skills and abilities as follows:
"We can label driving as a skill, but navigation, the area of the brain involved in navigational memory, is different in men and women. The navigational abilities in the man's brain are one step earlier, and the woman has to work harder for that. Likewise, for empathy. A woman needs a thousand experiences to learn empathy while a man needs maybe 2,500 experiences."
'5 percent intelligence, 95 percent work'
Explaining that there are 12 main personalities in people and that some aspects are strong and prominent in each personality, Prof. Tarhan said that "According to some opinions, the genetic effect on personality is maybe 30 percent or 40 percent. They ask Edison, 'How did you make so many discoveries?' and he says, '5 percent is intelligence, 95 percent is work.'"
Prof. Tarhan noted the importance of parents guiding the child in the direction of their abilities from an early age while raising a child, and said that when the environment matched the talents, a great job emerged, and Mozart was shown as an example in this regard.
The child who grows up in a regulated and orderly environment feels safe
Prof. Tarhan stated that there are internal and external conditions for a person to discover their talents, and continued:
"The child who grows up in a regulated and orderly environment feels safe and their future is secure. There are even studies that have been done on this matter. In order to feel that the person belongs to the institution, they must love the institution first, and secondly, they must feel safe in the institution. Later, it comes the wage they earn. For example, the way for child's talents was paved if the child loves the mother, father and home. When there is freedom, the child feels safe. If a person loves the workplace they live in, if they come running to work, if they can immerse themselves in hours of work, they can do great things. You see, the people who make discoveries in laboratories, who get Nobel Prizes, sleep in the laboratory day and night."
The abilities of those who are intelligent but lazy do not improve
Tarhan said that "At the moment, many institutions in Türkiye, especially state institutions, are full of intelligent but lazy people," and added that the skills of those who are intelligent but lazy have not developed. Tarhan stated that "What increases talents is effort. In order for that effort to happen, there must be a desire from within the person. There has to be a need to be a will."
Opinions must be respected
Emphasizing the importance of taking risks, Prof. Tarhan said that "To live in life is to take risks. The skills of the person who likes to take risks are improving. In order for a person to like to take risks, one has to feel safe and their ideas must be respected. In the workplace, for instance, if the manager always gives a motivational speech in a management meeting, a person does not listen to anyone. Talent does not develop there; therefore, everyone tries to please the boss."
Stating that the child should feel loved to develop their abilities, Prof. Tarhan said that "The role of the mother and father in life is not to be captain of the child, but to be the harbor pilot."
Prof. Nevzat Tarhan stated that the pressure environment has a positive effect on some people and has a whipping effect on these people, and Tarhan said, "It also has a defensive effect in some people. It goes into reverse identity.”
Once we direct the dreams of dreamers to the right goals, skills develop
Emphasizing the importance of creating a climate of possibilities rather than a pressure environment in talent management, Prof. Nevzat Tarhan continued his remarks as follows: "A peaceful competition develops skills. Competition is more important than oppression, a peaceful competition... It is not about standing out by harming someone else, it's about setting a goal for yourself and competing with that goal isn't competing with someone else. Vision matters. For this reason, vision, mission and values work is done in companies."
Talents develop in the person who can dream
Prof. Nevzat Tarhan reminded that it is a vision to attach meaning to the work done according to high ideals and to think about the things that can be done and said: "It is very important for him to dream. If we direct the dreams of dreamers to the right goals, talents develop. Thus, the first thing of talent management is to give the person the opportunity to dream. Here's what we call the climate of possibilities, daydreaming..."
"Talents develop in the person who can dream," Tarhan said.
"Let's look at our own childhood dreams, whatever dreams we had, we probably have talents in that direction. Therefore, childhood dreams remind us of our own inclination in talents. Or pay attention to what your child is dreaming about. Those dreams can be related to her abilities. The skills of people who can ask questions are improving, who are able to ask, who are able to ask and investigate. Whoever manages to add meaning to a job is able to develop their skills. It is also important for the person to know their weaknesses."
