98: Talk with Benita J

This week, I have the pleasure to share the presentation that Benita J. shared at the SENG conference! 

How Old Am I Really? A Meditation on Asynchronous Development

The purpose of this presentation is to bring awareness to the personal and professional impacts of asynchronous development in a gifted adult who remained unidentified throughout childhood. This presentation may be useful for gifted adults who are struggling to function in the work environment and may be battling issues like burnout, exhaustion, and depression. My hope is to encourage gifted adults embrace their giftedness and celebrate their multi-potentiality as they strive toward authenticity and career fulfillment.

How old am I really?

In this episode:

  • What exactly is asynchronous development?

  • How does it impact you?

  • What strategies help use your strengths and fill in the gaps?
