About the software

Play Your Talent is a leadership and development tool, that bring people’s talents into play – whether it is in the role as a manager or an employee. Once a person’s talents are brought into play, in the right way, – productivity and motivation can be increased with as much as 30%.
The idea behind the software is to work digitally, motivationally, and operationally with talent development and change management processes.  

Play Your Talent is an innovative platform as it is rooted in gamification as well as the newest research, making it possible for the user to work with strategy implementation, talent development, goals, and results – in a simple, operational, and motivational way.

The gamification of this platform means that people will answer a quiz, rather than a test, making it a motivational game instead of the typical personality trait test. The software changes the way an organization works with development and goals, because it invites the users to enter into an entertaining and interactive universe at the workplace. The changes are then trained on a regular basis, and implemented within the workflow and the culture of the company.

The statistical data foundation behind the software, makes it possible for the platform to create a quantitative analysis of the talent potential within the company/organization, which brings this knowledge into a cultural context for the company. The software’s data and results also give you a valuable insight, which can be used to validate and measure the company’s/organization’s talent mass, which again leads to use the talents more efficiently and in a faster, more effective, and much more motivational way. Further to this, the software documents the development of each person involved. With this knowledge in hand, the manager/team can get a visible insight to the areas of possible optimization, to increase team efficiency when solving tasks and increasing the company’s progress.

Through the platform, you can significantly increase each individual’s inclusiveness to other people, together with reducing stress and restlessness for the individual. The reason for this is, that when people are unable to use their talents, they get drained of energy and motivation. 

The software is developed with the purpose of boosting job satisfaction, motivation, and efficiency together with developing talents, decreasing stress, and creating a frame for successful hirerings.

Working with talent development is suddenly made quick and easy, because it also gives an insight to work cultures and how to optimize team work.

Play Your Talent can be used by a wide variety of job functions from Team Managers, HR Partners/Consultants, Coaches, Company Owners, Independent Consultants, Teachers, and within both the private and public sector.

The software is flexible and built as an API (Application Programming Interface) that can interact with and support other infrastructures and systems.

Everybody’s got talents

The method behind Play Your Talent disrupts the former thinking about talent development, because we consider every person to have multiple talents.

Most companies today have talent programs selected for people with certain, specified performances, e.g. 9-grid. But what about the rest of the employees? What happens when some people are selected, and some are not?

Talent programs for the selected few, is not the most effective method to use in company organizations, because you fail to activate the entire talent potential of the company. It is true that talent needs to be stimulated, however, the traditional method is too narrow in hindsight to the latest talent research. A talent that is often overlooked is the analytical talent, and since it is a thinking talent, it is not easily spotted in the traditional performance parameters.

Neuroscience and Psychology together creates a new and more modern method regarding our motivations, learning processes, and development skills. The research is based on the fact that everybody has a talent; in fact, everybody has multiple talents. By focusing on these talents and letting them be fully utilized creates a much higher value for the company, than the talent programs chosen for the few selected.

The best employees are not necessarily the ones that perform well in a 9-grid frame. The most valuable employees are the ones whose talents are put into play in the right way, and thus works with tasks that gives them energy. In this way, they can contribute to the company in the best way possible.

It is the company and the managers responsibility to ensure that the right people are assigned to the right projects and tasks – and this is exactly what Play Your Talent is developed for.

Disengaged employees are expensive

More sick leave

More mistakes at work

Less profitability

Less job growth

Lower stock price over time

My experience as a teacher and as a speaker for more than 15.000 people through the past years, has made me even more convinced that the recent research is on point. When I ask participants, clients, etc. if they are aware of their top 10 talents, only few people have this insight and only at a low level. The same goes for asking which tasks that give people energy, and which that drains them of energy.
