Talent Week is a one week program to discover your strengths & passions. It will take place June 25-29, 2012 in Utrecht, the Netherlands. The best news is: the program is free and we’ll pay your travel & subsistence costs! If you’d like to join, fill out the application form & send us your motivation before April 29. The program The aim of Talent Week is to discover what it means for you to be ‘in your element’ so that you can be more effective as a person in what what you do. It will also help you to support other (young) people to discover what it means for them to be in their element. We’ll spend time discovering each of the four components of the element; strengths, passion, attitude and opportunity. On the fifth day we’ll conclude the program with a one-day Talent Festival. This will be an informal, versatile event for around 150 people with expositions, workshops and entertainment. Part of the week will be spent preparing for this festival, using what you have learned about your strengths, passion & attitude! We’ll start each day with a shared breakfast. During the day there will be different sessions to attend and time to work on your own ideas for the festival. Finding your element The element is described as the point at which natural talent meets personal passion. When people are in their element, they feel most themselves, happy and inspired. They also achieve their highest performance level. The element consists of four components: strengths, passion, attitude and opportunity. A strength is a natural facility for something or in other words; a talent. A passion is something that you love to do. Your attitude is your own perspective on yourself and your circumstances. The last component is opportunity, which means that whether or not we’ll be in our element depends on the opportunities we have or create. You can find your element by exploring and combining the four components. The result will be different for everyone, as we all have our own way of being in our element. Knowing what it means to be in your element helps you to be more effective as a person and to enjoy what you do. The program will also help you to support others to take their strengths & passions as the starting point of their development/learning process. Who can apply There are 20 places available in the program for people from Europe in the age of 18-35. The reason for this age limit is that we focus on the topic of 'finding your element' specifically from the perspective of young people who have yet to discover what they're really good at and how to put that to work. Practical information Arrival & departure dates You will arrive in Utrecht on June 24. The program starts on June 25 and will end on June 29. You will return back home on June 30. Location You will share a room with a fellow participant in Hotel Mitland and the program venue is at Theatre De Berenkuil.
