The Future of Talent is Potential: HBR Podcast

In this fascinating podcast from HBR.org, Linda Hill and Claudio Fernandez-Araoz, discuss how businesses are shifting away from core competencies their workers need, and towards identifying potential for workers to adapt to ever-shifting problems and tools. Specifically, Fernandez-Araoz identifies five characteristics that great employees will have:

  1. A fierce, passionate commitment to unselfish goals
  2. Curiosity
  3. Insight - holistic thinkers
  4. Engagement - a willingness to engage others in the pursuit of a common goal
  5. Determination and resilience
The premise of Canterbury is to develop all of these characteristics in our students across a myriad of experiences, so they can be the future talent in high school, college, and the workplace. 

You can see it in our servant leadership and leadership program. 

You can see it in our STEM program with its foundational problem based approach. 

You can see it in our social studies program through events like the Millenial Development Goals project, where curiosity is stoked. 

You can see it in our Episcopal identity. 

You can see it in our students.
