Our Gifted Multipotentialites course is back!
We'll be starting our next cohort in January 2024, and registration is now open.
Taught and facilitated by InterGifted's gifted multipotentialite & career coach Marion Kee, this six-session course takes place over six months and is designed for gifted multipotentialites who are ready to embark on an in-depth self-discovery and learning journey, together with a dedicated group of their gifted multipotentialite peers.
What is multipotentiality & why do we offer a course about it?
Multipotentialties are people with many interests and creative pursuits who can perform well across a variety of domains. They have no interest in sticking with one job, industry, or passion for the rest of their lives, something which can clash with modern "specialist" culture. Multipotentiality is a relatively recent term, but older terms like polymath, renaissance person, generalist and "jack/jill of all trades" describe an essentially similar disposition. Well-known historical multipotentialites were people like Leonardo da Vinci, Albert Einstein and Maya Angelou. They didn't fit into any kind of social mold, and if you're a multipotentialite, you probably don't either! Multipotentialites need social mirroring, support, resources and courage to live out their unique multi-faceted potential. This course is all about providing that essential grounding, for your potential to take root and flourish.
Here are some of the main themes covered in our course:
- Understand the complexities of multipotentiality (exploring the research and resources on mulitpotentiality, giftedness and creativity)
- Keep a positive self-image in a world that doesn’t necessarily understand the gifted multipotential path and value
- Confront and resolve the challenges of gifted multipotentiality in relationships and family life, including communication and negotiation strategies and tools
- Overcome feelings of being an imposter ("imposter syndrome") related to your gifted multipotentiality
- Understand and meet your gifted multipotentialite needs for multi-dimensional development
- Construct fitting career, job, and academic paths as a gifted multipotentialite
- Shape a balanced and fulfilling life as a gifted multipotentialite

What do participants say about the course?
"This was an excellent program that offered me the chance to expand my personal awareness of my own gifted/multipotential mind and it provided excellent insight into coaching the gifted/multipotential client. This was all done through a series of informative readings, reflective writing exercises and the dynamic monthly group discussions…all of which were professionally facilitated by the kind, perceptive and highly attuned coach Marion. This was a safe space to share topics of sensitivity and to be able to grow in a like-minded/like-hearted environment. While Marion’s keen attention was a positive aspect of the program, I especially enjoyed the monthly meeting with the fellow cohort members. In our seven months together we developed positive relationships that were meaningful and that will hopefully continue going forward. Thank you again for a great program." - Amy, US
