🎢 What is your favorite ride at an amusement park?
Is it a🎢 or 🎡 or 🎠 or maybe 🚂 ?
🎢 What is it about that ride that gets you all positively jittery with excitement?
🎢 Now think about talent development, respectively career development, now answer honestly …
🎢 Do you have the same sense of excited anticipation … or does it rather fill you with 👹 trepidation?
Well, in my not so humble opinion
, career growth should be exhilarating - not debilitating. So what is getting in the way of the positive excitement?
As we think of amusement park’s design, the approach to have something for everybody, the attention to the needs / wants / desires of their park visitors, the ability to interlay familiar experiences with new and novel ones, what insights can we glean and apply to talent development?
