Michelangelo’s Message

Raymond L. Forbes

Abstract


What keeps us from becoming what we can be? Renaissance genius Michelangelo’s ideas about crafting sculpture are a powerful metaphor for the release of our hidden performance potential. The actualizations of inherent potential can be viewed as a creative work performance that synergizes head, heart, and body. Potential is seen as being closely related to the psychological concepts of talents and multiple intelligences.

 

 

 

For the global economy, the effective employment of talent, intelligence, and knowledge is projected to be a primary driving force for years to come. For business organizations, investment in the realization of human potential is seen to have lasting value and is considered to be a continuing source of competitive advantage. For the Arts and Humanities, the constructive realization of human potential has been a long-pursued Holy Grail. And, for the individual, there is the real possibility of enhanced future performance with an associated economic payoff.
