Finding your Genius Talent®

We designed this genius talent® discovery process to be done with other people for one simple reason: you can't do it by yourself. We tried (and tried and tried), and it didn't work because the process requires you to notice, identify, and examine your blind spots, and by definition, you can't. You need other people to point them out and get past them.

About the author

John Hittler

"How were you able to pull that off?"

John has made a habit of creating seemingly impossible outcomes, whether transforming a stuggling team to become the top performer, or engaging an audience with his playful, interactive, life-changing style. His belief is simple: we are each endowed with one genius talent®, different than any other person on the planet. John uses his genius talent® to create seemingly impossible outcomes and in doing so, helps people win big!

As part of exercising his genius talent®, John created and refined a trademarked Genius Talent® Discovery Process, starting in 2007. To date,more than 8,000 people have discovered their genius talent®, and use it to enjoy their work, make a larger contribution, and make more money.

His professional career spans 9 owner funded companies, some of which thrived, others not as much. Regardless, each company (and one non-profit foundation) taught valuable lessons and honed the skills and passions John holds today. In short: Do what you love! Love the people you do it with!

"We take struggling teams and help them to transform into top performers. We take already great teams and partner with them to transform to their next highest level of growth. That almost always centers upon releasing the pent up talent in each individual and team. That sounds simple, and it's not always easy. Our job is to make that process accessible, attractive, and It never hurts to make it fun too," claims John, who spent more than his fair share of time in the principal's office for his playful approach to life...and grade school. That same approach make transformation much more appealing for clients.

The Process

Facilitated 1:1 Process (hosted by paid professional):

For candidates choosing a professionally facilitated 1:1 Genius Discovery Process, you will have a trained facilitator lead you through the complete process in approximately 2 hours, on one video call. Efficient, private, and you will get a great result, as you are working with an experienced facilitator.

Non - Facilitated Commando Squad (unhosted, no fee to participants):

For non-facilitated "Commando Squads”, our online portal leads you through the process of finding each of your 3 candidates’ Genius Talent® Discoveries. Your first call will take care of Part I of the process (for all 3 partners) all on one call, and then subsequent calls (3 or 4 more, in total) will take one candidate at a time through Part II of the discovery process. You will partner with each other to uncover each other’s genius talent®, and your participation from start to finish is required, since it takes a team to accomplish the feat unfacilitated.

Facilitated Commando Squad (hosted by paid professional):

For facilitated “Commando Squads”, you and your 3 person team will be led by a trained, paid facilitator. You can choose to have all four video calls led, or individual calls as you may choose. Your team can decide how to divide the investment. Many Commando Squads complete Part I by themselves (the easier of the two parts), without a facilitator, and then hire the professional for the second call - Part II for your first candidate. Your Commando Squad can then decide if you think your team can progress without further help, or you can choose to engage the facilitator as needed. This gives the option of (paid) professional help, and keeps the investment up to you.
