Rianne van de Ven talked about Giftedness in practice; Strengthening personal leadership in gifted adults.

Many gifted adults were not recognized as being gifted as children simply because knowledge of giftedness did not exist or was unavailable. Many gifted people experience challenges in dealing with others and with themselves. How can they learn to acknowledge and develop their potential in a world that rarely understands them?

Giftedness is not always recognized or considered relevant in situations at work or in care. As a result, gifted people often fail to receive the support they need. How can professionals like career counselors, coaches, psychologists, therapists, labor experts, HR advisors, or supervisors help in this regard?

In her latest book, coach Rianne van de Ven, gifted herself, provides insights into and building blocks for successfully supporting gifted adults. What role does giftedness play? How can gifted adults change ingrained patterns and develop new essential skills? Valuable tools for professionals and gifted people themselves.

Rianne van de Ven (the Netherlands, 1971)  has worked as a professional coach for gifted adults for more than 15 years. She is an author, speaker, trainer, teacher, and

researcher on the subject of gifted adults and is an ECHA Specialist in Gifted Education since 2016.
