We don’t live in an ideal world do we? On paper (and the Talent Dynamics square) it would seem to be a simple matter of getting a Supporter to lead your team productively, ensuring everyone was doing the things they most enjoyed, inspiring them and delegating new tasks effectively.
So what happens when there is no Supporter, not even as a secondary profile?
The scientific evidence is in – Stress is not bad for you. In fact, it is a vital part to living a life of purpose and fulfilment.
But only if you believe.
Have you ever had one of those days where you’ve got loads of things to complete on your ‘to-do’ list but you just aren’t being productive?
From my experience, one of the biggest reasons for this isn’t about what you’re doing (or not doing) but WHERE you’re trying to do it from!
It is a fact that none of us are perfect (sorry to break that to you). I have yet to find anyone who has not confessed at some point in their life that they have made a mistake or things haven’t gone as planned. In fact most of the interesting stories and the biggest learning come from when things don’t go right.
I’d also argue that the majority of us, regardless of profile, have a degree of perfectionism about us.
If we can understand ourselves, we can accurately assess our strengths and compensate for those things that challenge us so we can improve and develop.
Saad Kayali, the Managing Director of Sysmex Middle East, a subsidiary of Sysmex Europe GmbH, had his Talent Dynamics profile done and liked the results so much he asked Susan Castle, Performance Coach & Flow Consultant, to do the same for the entire top level of his company!

Take care of your people and your people will take care of your business — and bottom line profits will follow.
“If you imagine less, less will be what you undoubtedly deserve,” Debbie Millman counseled in one of the best commencement speeches ever given, urging: “Do what you love, and don’t stop until you get what you love. Work as hard as you can, imagine immensities…”
Did you know that BEING HAPPY leads to success, better relationships, better health, better sex and most other desired outcomes! Success, great relationships and better health do not make us happy, it is Happiness that makes those things possible.
I have done a lot of self-reflection on who I am with regards to my talents and capabilities in the recent twelve months. This assessment comes through at an appropriate time as I will be making a career and life change in the next six months. The assessment supports what I know are my strengths and my natural behaviours that make me comfortable and effective.
It also raises things I didn’t know about myself. Possible talents that I may have but have not pursued for one reason or another. It raises questions for myself and is possibly the little push I need to explore these new “strengths”.
Sluggish sales and unmet targets were an early warning sign that the team were falling out of step, despite a strengthening property market.
By understanding how their Talent Profile powered their performance, the team identified changes that would take them into rapid flow.
Her challenge was for the team to quickly build trust, understanding, and effective ways of communicating with each other. She wanted them to hit the ground running, especially when it came to the special projects that each manager would now have individual responsibility for.
There is not a single corporate Leader I know or work with that does not want to take their company from Good to Great. The evidence is in – this requires compassion and a focus within their team on inner growth and personal development.

The world of work has changed dramatically. Most of today’s youth are likely to experience an average of 17 employment transitions in their working lifetime. They are likely to have occupations in up to five different sectors of the economy. Many will have a variety of concurrent work roles, and have regular planned and unplanned gaps from work. Preparing our youth for this world of work requires a new approach to career planning.
Many people go through their careers (and lives) doing the exact same thing, in the exact same way. The people who get ahead are those who innovate and blaze new trails, not the ones who repeat old ways of doing things.
Here are five reasons why Flow is a game changer, and should be at the center of how individuals and companies are managing themselves and their teams.
