It can be overwhelming trying to decide on a career. Feeling pressure at an early age can cause students to select a career and college major before they know which field will be a good fit for their unique abilities.
That’s where we come in. Choosing your path takes knowing who you are - we can help you discover your natural abilities, strengths, and personality style. Then we’ll pair this information with your interests and values to guide you toward a career you’ll love! You have your whole life ahead of you and we’re excited to help you navigate it!
With our process, your natural abilities will be charted and explained in customized reports designed to relate your pattern of abilities to align with performance, work and school environment, and career fit.
As powerful and rich in guidance as your natural talents and hardwiring are, they are just part of the whole person. People are too complex to be defined by just one or two factors. Our holistic approach to career transformation takes into account other critical factors such as your interests, values, family, and goals.
But does it matter if you know what your natural abilities are? Can’t everyone learn skills and improve their job performance, regardless?
There’s no question that we can all improve in different areas and acquire skills. But it takes a tremendous amount of effort to do something well for which you are not naturally suited. You will achieve fewer results and far less satisfaction doing work that doesn’t align with your natural talents, gifts, and abilities. For individuals, this means longer, more frustrating hours with fewer rewards; for organizations, this means falling short of attaining maximum productivity.
What are Aptitudes?
Aptitudes are your natural abilities. Aptitudes are not your personality traits, desires, or knowledge. Each individual is created with a unique set of abilities that can facilitate joy through work, happiness in relationships, and confidence through self-awareness. By positioning yourself so that your abilities will be highlighted, you will find a greater satisfaction in life. True Compass can help you by guiding you through a discovery process to reveal how you are hard-wired for success.
