A Profiling Workshop – Sysmex Middle East’s Story

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!

There were six managers at this level:

  1. the Managing Director,
  2. the Marketing Director,
  3. the Logistics Director,
  4. the HR Director,
  5. the Sales Director
  6. the Operations Director.

As global leaders in vitro diagnostics and automation services, the managers seemed to have no immediate issues. All communicated well with each other and as a team were seamless.

Uncovering Issues

The issue was they tended to focus on areas they knew they were brilliant at – for example the conception of ideas, but they had blind spots in other areas, i.e. putting things into action.

On completion of their individual Talent Dynamics profiles the explanation became obvious.

Out of the six people on the team, four were Mechanics including Saad, one was a Lord and the other was a Creator profile.

This lack of Blaze and Tempo energy explained why they were good at brainstorming, but not so strong at following through. They were very tunnel focussed and tended not to go for bigger targets those with a more Blaze energy would instinctively do.

Talent Dynamics Workshop

Saad then asked Susan to run a leadership development training session to decide what changes, if any, needed to be made to their management set-up.

“I wanted the Heads of Departments to understand their own profiles, master their own talents as well as ensure that these talents are put into good use for the team and the company. Having a team that is well-honed and performing at their best can only be good for business.”

During the workshop they looked at what was stopping them from setting bolder financial targets. Was it a Dynamo, Tempo, Blaze or Steel problem? The managers ended up with about 30 or 40 different things blocking them.

After narrowing down these blocks further, the underlying core issue became apparent:

the truth was there was no one in that room with the specific kind of business power or ability to deal with Blaze or Tempo challenges.

What Kind of Energy Are You Missing From Your Team?

Each of the directors left the workshop motivated and full of clarity. They had a deeper understanding of what was stopping them from achieving higher targets and more importantly, who to go to in order to solve any issues and help achieve these new goals.

Susan says, “Sysmex found, through the test, that the management roles fitted them quite well but the workshop helped them to leverage these strengths by highlighting them and showing them how they could be leveraged to improve team communication and performance while reducing stress.”

Saad is now planning another workshop for the next level of management in the Sysmex team and we’ll keep you posted on how much of a difference this one also makes!

 “I think Talent Dynamics is a great opportunity to maximize the harmony within the team, to get the needed group mindset and perspectives of “what else we can do”; and thus develop a healthy change culture, opting always to challenge our own achievements and parameters to yield further milestones in the journey of success.”  – – Saad Kayali, Managing Director of Sysmex Middle East

We will be launching our Fully automated E-learning Flow Consultant Accreditation in April this year and are looking for a small group of 30 coaches/trainers/consultants and line managers from around the world to take part in a pilot programme during March and April.

The E-learning programme will allow participants to do the full Flow Consultant accreditation, without having to attend one of our regular 2 day workshops in person.

Online Flow Consultant Accreditation 2/3 December

We have been running our 2 day Flow Consultant accreditation workshop online and have had some great feedback from attendees about their online experience.

Whilst we physically run the workshops currently in several countries (UK/Australia/Japan/USA/Dubai/China and Taiwan) for those people that can’t get to a physical workshop for any reason, this is the best way to get accredited from the comfort of your own chair!

The 2 day accreditation is highly interactive and engaging and just requires you to have a good internet connection, a computer and your availability for 2 days!

The December online workshop has just 2 places remaining and will run 2/3 December

Book your place here or Contact direct, if you want to know more about the programme first.


Nathalie Baron – Flow Consultant Switzerland

“When I decided to do the online training to become a Flow Consultant, I must say I was a little septical: is it really possible to learn the skills without being in a training room?! And the experience has been amazing!! Yes it’s possible!! We really had a great training, with practical exercises, and a lot of valuable sharing and discussions with the trainer and the other participants. I can say I learned as well, if not maybe better, from the comfort of my home, because focused and attentive to what was happening on my screen. Despite the distance and the technology we created a powerful, authentic and fun learning atmosphere. I promise, you can trust the online course, it really works!” Nathalie Baron Flow Consultant Switzerland

Michelle’s news

I’m literally just back in the office after 3 weeks in Australia, where I met with some incredible new Consultants who are getting accredited with us in June and July this year. I also had chance to catch up with and share inspiring stories with our existing Consultants and Master Trainers in each city too.

Everyone was asking me ‘When are you bringing the Trust Conference to Australia?’ So, watch this space…

Speaking of which, tickets for the Trust Conference  in London this year are selling out fast. We have just issued some new group booking tickets as so many people are bringing their entire teams.  Check out the new speakers just announced this month! 

Congratulations to the new groups of Flow Consultants and Performance Consultants who have joined us in the past month. 3 groups in the UK,  including a brand new group of Flow Consultants who have been accredited in our very exciting new programme: Talent Dynamics for Young People. A programme specially created to assist 9-16 year olds to get into Flow!

Oh by the way, just so you know the difference:

Flow Consultants are accredited to work 1-2-1 using Talent Dynamics. Typically, they are coaches, mentors, line managers or new trainers.

Performance Consultants are accredited to work with teams and entire organisations at a transformational level and are usually very well established trainers, consultants and facilitators.

If you want to find out more about either of these accreditations, drop me a line for more information

Have a fabulously Flow filled month ahead!
