Point to GCI Heading

Individuation

The term individuation, as used by Carl Jung, refers to the development of your unique individuality—your true self. Your true self is like an enjoyable home—the place of your greatest personal potential.

Yet finding that place of personal potential is not always easy or clear. It is important to be mindful of what brings you passion, energy, and enthusiasm. Preferred gifts (aptitudes) offer a starting place; they are important clues to finding your authentic self. The GiftsCompass Inventory™ (GCI) will help you identify your strongest aptitudes so that you can more confidently discover the unique potential that is your destiny.

After you take the GCI, point to your compass heading above to learn more about yourself and your path of individuation.
