We recently conducted one of the biggest programs in talent evaluation and management for a very reputed school for 10th std students in Pune.
It was 3 hrs. of detailed talent evaluation program using MultipIe Intelligence + psychometry, covering aptitude, personality traits, skills, perception and factual gap analysis etc. All these modules were having strict time criteria.
Coverage: 230+ students across 8 classrooms, 6+ team of counselors, 4+ teachers & 2 resident school counselors.
Mode: While we have a online mechanism; for this program we were told to conduct it manually.
Post exercise: Information fed into system and each evaluation report studied in detail. The reports were quite interesting, some excelled in numerical ability, some in linguistics, some were very good in reasoning while some in verbal.
Counselling sessions: Conducted 2 days (sat – sun) one on one counselling sessions with each and every student and parents.
The students were happy to receive their talent evaluation reports and most of them were happy to understand their strengths esp. regarding their aptitude, personality traits, the self image they carry, what they perceive themselves to be good at and what they really are good at. The challenges, life skill & career recommendations etc.
