Comprendere e sviluppare le capacità

SOFT SKILL, COSA SONO

Le neuroscienze per capire con semplicità il focus di Time to Mind

Gli Assessment Time to Mind consentono di verificare le
capacità che rappresentano i mattoni con i quali
costruire qualsiasi tipo di profilo che garantisce il
successo per la professione e la carriera. Sono strumenti
fondamentali nei confronti dei collaboratori, di sé stessi
e di chi svolge attività di selezione.

Neuroscience explains how soft skills manifest and form the basis of all Time to Mind applications

Research conducted by Harvard University with Carnegie Foundation and Stanford Research Center concluded that: 85 percent of professional success comes from having developed Soft Skills and that only the remaining 15 percent is attributed to technical skills and knowledge (Hard Skill)

Le capacità rappresentano un vero e proprio capitale
da definire, valutare e far crescere

Capabilities (soft skills) represent real personal and organizational capital to be defined, assessed, and grown

CAPABILITIES

Beyond technical and professional skills, it becomes increasingly important to focus on behaviors to achieve results.

But to ascertain what behaviors need to be enacted, it is necessary to define them into precise and describable capabilities.

Capabilities, as the driving force behind know-how, enable organizational and professional goals to be transformed into results.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ABILITY AND PERSONALITY

Capabilities are representations of describable and observable behaviors.

Personality is a description of intimate thoughts and emotions that seek to explain why and how a person tends to act.

In the objective verification of behavior, the use of diagnostic tools based on personality tests are unable to predict how people under analysis will behave, even if they provide generic and reassuring profiles.

Mental origin of abilities highlighted by neuroscience

The stratification and lateralization of brain areas allows us to highlight fourfundamental
ways of processing information and enacting behaviors divided between:
1. Telencephalon (cortical brain) and 2. Diencephalon (limbic system)
