Attitude vs. Talent

A debate which is common among working professionals and pundits at any company. Attitude and Talent, though obviously different talking points, are often in conflict with each other when considering an employee’s performance, scope, and capability. In this article, CodeForce 360 explains some of the key differences between the two.

Key Difference

1. Attitude is observed while talent is measured. In any company which is run by professionals with varied experience, talent can help win coveted assignments/projects while attitude can win the regard and attention of an entire team.

2. Talent can help an individual tackle the toughest of assignments while attitude can help an individual get through the toughest of predicaments. Skills can only take you as far as a project’s completion or the task after but attitude can help you stay composed even when the odds aren’t in your favour. The right attitude also helps you achieve your tasks since it directly influences aspects such as dedication and focus.

3. Talent is perishable but attitude stays with you all the way. The skills you add to your arsenal tend to diminish when you’re out of practice. These skills are all about touch and one needs to constantly use them in order to stay on top of his/her game. Attitude is a quality which stays with an individual irrespective of his/her roles and responsibilities at any given company.

4. Talent is an asset while attitude is an advantage. Recruiting professionals in today’s industry is all about intelligent selections. Gone are the days when companies look over prospective candidates since the rest have an attractive list of certifications. The companies of today verify candidates’ attitude with smart hiring procedures and ascertain their suitability through considering what they bring to the table.

Closing Note

According to CodeForce 360, attitude and talent are two different aspects which are to be considered as equals in order to achieve success. Companies looking to hire professionals need to hone their selection processes in a way which considers both of these aspects. From an employee’s standpoint, talent is critical as you need the skills and efficiency to perform while attitude helps you stay well on course for success.
