Development of talent does not solely deal with acquiring cognitive competencies and training of skills, it encompasses the development of the whole person. This enables to draw on deeper layers of the personality: qualities, convictions, identity and sincere involvement.
Qualities manifest themselves in what you can do, convictions in your beliefs, identity in your self image and involvement in what drives you to do something in the first place.
All these layers influence behaviour, but they don’t always collaborate constructively. Certain convictions for instance can inhibit development (“I may wish for that, but I know I can never attain such a thing”). However, when these layers show high coherency one can experience flow.
Talent development considers the interdependent alignment of different layers of the personality to allow somebody to achieve his personal goals and ideals.
