Your Unique Skill
Here we will develop a concept that allows you to identify your unique talent and passion, and apply it to your most productive and satisfying activities and relationships.
How do we devlelop this?
Write a list of all the things you do whilst working in your business e.g answering the telephone, calling clients, meeting with staff be as specific and comprehensive as possible.
Then take each item and place them into one of the categories below:
Unique Skill Activities
Unique Skill is what you love to do and do best. Unique Skill activities have four characteristics:
1 – Superior Talent – You have a great skill that other people notice and rely on you for.
2 – Passion – You have great enthusiasm and love doing it, you feel in the zone.
3 – Energy – It provides you with energy and energises others.
4 – Continual improvement – You keep getting better at it and are continually finding new ways to grow.
These are the activities where you have a superior skill but do not have a passion for.
These are the activities where you are adequate but do not excel, others can do these better than you.
You hate doing these activities, they cause you stress, frustration and you often experience failure
Of course determining over time what your preferred modus of operandi are rather than just looking at tasks will help you to really get to the heart of your Unique Skill, for example look at the days that you feel you are in your element, where you are buzzing, ask yourself “what have I done today to cause this”
Knowing your Unique Skills will help you to redesign your business around you and will hopefully ensure that you remain enthusiastic and connected to your business.
Next time we will look at the next stages which are more business related, looking at a High Level Business plan and a Three Year Vision to set some goals. We will finish with some practical tips on structure, systems and processes.
I started out life working at Midland Bank which then turned in to HSBC and after 10 years frustration I found my calling as a Financial Adviser for HSBC. After 3 years I set up my first “business”, a completely new team at HSBC that we started from scratch and built into one of HSBC’s most profitable advisory teams (£ per head). After six years of this the urge to start my own company proved too much and I founded Kubera Wealth.
We are a 7 person firm located on the old High St in Pinner and we provide Entrepreneurs and Families with coaching and Financial Planning advice.
I am married with three daughters and mini schnauzer, I play as much golf as I can, do the odd track day and enjoy photography, art and eating out.
