Having multiple talents is a blessing..��


  • I wholeheartedly believe so! Absolutely. But there can be drawbacks.

    Multipotentialites, or polymaths, can reach the peak of their careers years after their peers.

    Their curiosity & disparate interests/talents can mean it takes them longer to figure out how their unique mix adds value.

    Meanwhile, the world isn't waiting, persisting in its appetite for specialists.

    Because arguably, specialists are far less complicated to manage & easier to assess.

    So the marketplace isn't great at making space for polymaths. And polymaths struggle themselves to see where they can make their best contribution.

    Regardless of which, the argument for multipotentialites to me is a similar one to the business case for diversity; a richer blend of perspectives can result in richer solutions to challenges & problems…
