Eminent women were once gifted girls: how to transform gifted potential into eminent talents

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


    The development of Kronborg’s Model of Talent Development for Eminent Women was underpinned by the Model of Adult Female Talent Development. Additionally, the purpose of the feminist research which underpinned Kronborg’s Model was to explore the lives of ten eminent women in seven talent domains in order to gain knowledge and understanding from the women’s reflections, as to what contributed to their talent development across the lifespan. Various psychological and sociological themes were identified in the Model which influenced the talent development of these gifted females leading to their eminence in diverse talent domains. Based on theories and models of talent development, including Kronborg’s Model, strategies for identifying and teaching gifted students for talent development are presented.
