Finding meaningful work – whether it be a professional career, collaborative teams, commercial enterprises, or volunteer projects – must first start with understanding yourself.
AlignedWorks Learning provides a pathway for talent optimization.
We define talent as:
Your unique and unreproducible convergence of core motivations
(why you show up), strengths, knowledge, and skills.
Optimizing this talent signature means identifying, qualifying and quantifying, refining, focusing, cultivating, developing, and making visible the full value of what you bring to the table. Join AlignedWorks Learning, a community of people committed to talent optimization.
