Talent Stacking: The TalentQuest Story
During my interview process with TalentQuest, I had the pleasure of meeting with TalentQuest’s founder and CEO, Dr. Frank Merritt, Ph.D. The time spent speaking with him cemented my desire to be a part of this company. His passion, work ethic, and interests that helped create this business fascinated me.
In a previous blog, I provided some extreme Talent Stacks of well-known public figures. Given Dr. Merritt’s (Frank’s) amazing story and journey to where he is today, I thought it would make sense to share a more relatable example that combines traditional learning with lived experience.
In subsequent conversations with Frank after I was hired, here is how I interpreted his unique Talent Stack:
As I think about Frank’s Talent Stack, it’s clear how these elements combined to build the company TalentQuest. He was able to marry his passion for psychology with his interest in technology. He had the foresight to take calculated risks. The grit to overcome obstacles and the business acumen to bring it all together. Just like Frank, you can combine your unique passions and interests to build something special.
