TOOL | When You Know Someone's Gift

Tools, Cities Deepening Community

This list "20 Things You Can do When You Know Someone's Gift" displays of the wide variety of ways—some quick and some more involved— you can use knowledge of a person’s core gift to help them build internal resilience and healthy participation in their community. There is an initial “ah-ha” that can be very powerful when a person first discovers their core gift, but that is just the beginning. The more attention you help the person to focus on their gift, the more they become aware of it’s usefulness and can benefit from it. None of these activities is “better” or “more powerful” than any other item on the list. What looks useful to you?
