Students and staff discovering how to unlock their learning capacity
By: Lim Vin Tsen
Competency, capability, endowment, expertise, accomplishment and aptitude. These are just a few words that describes talent. According to the dictionary, a talent is a natural endowment of a person. It is an ability or natural capacity that we have, which may range from our creativity to our athletic abilities. We all have them, but we are not always so good at identifying what they are. Sometimes they can be right in front of us, and we miss them. If we are able to determine what our talents are, we can tap into an amazing retinue of resources that can help us in every aspect of our lives, including our work, daily activities and communication.
HELP University co-organized a motivational talk, “Introductory Peoplekeys Online Profile System”, together with Holistic Education & Advanced Learning (HEAL) Resources at ELM Business School, HELP University (LH-2.1) on April 7, 2016.
Finding our hidden talents can be quite difficult to do but at the recent talk, “LearningKeys – Unlocking the New Paradigm of Learning” and “PeopleKeys DTV – Discovering Your Inner Talent”, the expert advice from Mr. Ian Tan and Miss Chai Lee Fong proved to be the turning point in helping HELP University’s students, staff and lecturers in developing an awareness of how they can discover their natural talents and merge it with their personal passions in life. Both Mr. Tan and Miss Chai shared with their captive audience how to unleash their personal element within them and to learn to be more aware of how their can use their passion to drive their achievements further.
In the second chapter of the talk, Miss Chai took the floor and rallied the audience into an exciting group exercise about self-awareness. This exercise was designed to help explain the theory of how we are perceived as an individual and how our true self plays an important factor in reflecting an honest image to the people around us. Miss Chai then shared with the audience the different personality types discovered and how each personality best plays a role in an organization and daily interactions with each another.
Overall, these sessions were evident that both Mr Ian and Miss Chai were personable and humorous and were in their element. Their knowledge in the subject matter proved a success as everyone present left the auditorium with the knowledge that they owe it to themselves to ensure that their passion in their work life and personal life must come naturally and must be their authentic best.
