Striving for excellence in healthcare, research and educationTalent Management is all about talent: the rising stars at PhD, postdoc and young group leader levels. With cognitive excellence as a prerequisite condition, ambition, guts and a surplus of energy and resilience, talented academic professionals surprise and redefine limits. Real talents are not only outstanding in their professional field, but are also social and compassionate, and want to connect with their surroundings.
It is crucial that we all share the same definition of what a ‘talent’ is. We identify three aspects that together make up this definition.
- Professional capital
Cognitive (academic) excellence is a necessary precondition and becomes apparent from work experience and objective criteria like publications, citations, awards, subsidies and other forms of professional recognition. A talent performs better and develops faster than others in their area do. In a broader context, a talent displays vision, intuitive insights into complex connections.
- Individual capital
Talents distinguish themselves from others with their personality, behavior, ambition and drive. A talent stands out in terms of guts, pro-activity, and a surplus of energy. In addition, resilience, creativity and a focus on continued learning are crucial to excel in science.
- Social capital
Talents are social creatures who seek to connect to and collaborate with their surroundings, and look and work beyond boundaries. Talents show an entrepreneurial spirit and actively build up and use networks, always on the look-out for possibilities and opportunities.
