The method used by Talent Dynamics to get individuals, teams, divisions, enterprises in flow and trust with resulting leaps in performance

Michelle’s news

Congratulations to the 2 newly accredited groups of Talent Dynamics Consultants in October. We had a group in Australia join us and a group in the UK both in the same month. Pictured below are the latest group from the UK, with Jan Polak our Master Trainer!

We are all excited here at TDHQ, as we are now in the final build up to our first ever Global Talent Dynamics Partner Conference!

Meeting up in the idyllic paradise island of Bali in just 2 weeks time, we will be joined by Talent Dynamics Partners, flying in from the UK, USA, South Africa, Japan and Australia! Straight after the conference, we are also to have another first! Our first ever group of Performance Consultants who we are accrediting at Step 2 on the Talent Dynamics Pathway.

Consultants like Neville who has helped his clients add over £500K in additional revenue in the past 6 months. He’s also added £25k in additional revenues to his own training company since becoming accredited less than 6 months ago and Teejay who has helped to add £110k to a UK based charity. Both Neville and Teejay, along with several others are joining us for the Step 2 accreditation.

The first group attending the Step 2 accreditation are already getting great results with their clients using Step 1 and will now be able to run our 3 day ‘Meaningful, Measurable, Profitable Change’ programme, which typically see’s clients doubling results somewhere in their business within 12 months of attending. We had one of our UK based clients, double their revenue in 6 months and double profitability within 12 months after attending this programme.

Jan and I are also going to be mentoring at Roger James Hamiltons Wealth Dynamics Masters Programme the week before, which we are really excited about. We will be joined by the entire TDHQ Leadership team globally and 12 other amazing Business Leaders from all around the world, looking to dramatically grow their businesses. Its a perfect time for us to get focused on our plans for the next 12 months too!

So… I’m off to pack my bags! Looking forward to not having cold, wet windy weather for a few weeks!

Here’s to a fabulously Flow filled month ahead!

Down Under to pave bigger way – Local Businesses – Blackpool Gazette

Article Published in the Blackpool Gazette on Wednesday 18 May 2011 09:46

A BUSINESS development firm has launched an international division following huge success in Australia.

Freckleton-based Talent Dynamics, run by Michelle Clarke, has seen demand for its Pathway programme grow following a series of successful meetings on the continent.

The firm calls itself the number one business development pathway for accelerating trust and flow which, Ms Clarke admits, does baffle some people initially.

She said: “Our concept is actually quite simple.

“We believe trust and flow should be the focus of big companies, but too often they concentrate solely on revenue and profit at the expense of what’s occurring in their own organisation.

A bright sparkly Star Profile with heaps of energy and a thirst for knowledge and personal development, Una is already making an impact on those that are meeting her.  In December Una trained and was accredited as a Flow Consultant - one of the first group of Flow Consultants in the world and since then, she has been practising her new found skill on anyone who rings up for a personal Talent Dynamics Debrief!

Opportunity for the first 3 UK based Businesses that respond to it!

Part of Una’s role is to run our fabulous 2 hour Taster Session Programme and whilst she has been trained really well to deliver this, she has yet to gain much experience of running it…  So, we thought we would offer out a brilliant opportunity that allows you and your team to find out how to accelerate Trust and Flow, whilst allowing Una to gain some valuable experience and feedback!

For the first 3 businesses to book, Una will profile the participants with the Talent Dynamics Profile tool and will come and run the 2 hour Taster Session with you at a suitable time in Feb/March. We retail this Taster Session at £997 +VAT and the 10 profiles alone are valued at £1000! but for the first 3 “fast off the draw companies” it will be just £347 !

Talent Dynamics January Sale

Its traditional this time of year to buy the new sofa you have been admiring but weren’t ready to splash out on, or get those designer clothes you wanted all season but didnt want to pay top dollar for.

So, for those of you that have been considering running a Talent Dynamics Taster Session, now is the perfect time to book one in. Between now and the 31st January, if you book  a session with us  – you can run it at a time to suit you either during or after January – we have added it to our January Sale and reduced the price from £997 to just £847! (that includes all 10 participants, recieving a personalised profile report each, valued at £1000!)

What is a Taster Session?

It’s a lively, interactive, two-hour session for up to 10 participants. Each participant receives their personal Talent Dynamics Profile Report and begins to understand the best way to create value within their team and how to leverage that value. Often, participants start to have real ‘aha’ moments about why certain relationships in the team are inhibiting performance. They can then begin to appreciate each others’ skills and approaches.

By the end of the Session, the team have an enhanced understanding of their own Profile, how to get into flow, and the role of others in a team and their flow patterns. The session delivers a high level of insight into how the team can operate much more efficiently. It serves as a great way for a team to check out if the Talent Dynamics Pathway is appropriate for them and is also a great energiser to break up a team/away day.

What some of our 2010 participants have said about the Taster Session

 ”Insightful, enjoyable and user friendly. Certainly the most practical tool that I have used!” Chris Nitsche General Mills – Training & Recruitment Manager

“I have really enjoyed this session as it has showed how we as an organisation could improve the way we work together and increase the value of our business” Mo Ali – USP Creative

How to take advantage of the January Sale

Either call the office today and ask to speak to Michelle on 01772 634944 or drop us an email with your contact details, with ‘Taster Session’ as the subject header, to info@talent-dynamics.com but hurry the sale will only be on until January 31st!

Michelle's October sharing

October’s been a record month for delivering Talent Dynamics Pathway programmes, since we set up last November. It’s been great!

An extra special programme for me this month, was a one day programme that I actually got to participate in, for a change (because Jan was facilitating it), with a small group  who are set to become part of the Talent Dynamics Team over the next few months.  I will be introducing you to these new team members in forthcoming blogs and letting you know more about their roles! It was kind of strange being a participant of the material I deliver all the time and yet it was a fantastic  experience for me to work on my business with my team!

Over the past twelve months, I have been approached by literally scores of coaches/trainers and business leaders asking to be trained in using Talent Dynamics Pathway with their clients and team members! Well — the time has come.  Jan and I are ready to take a pilot group through just this in December.

This is the only such pilot we have scheduled in for the next year. Numbers are limited to ten and some of the places are already filled.  If you want to know more about how to take part in this pilot, which we have seen generate significant increases in income for individuals. then drop me a line at michelle@talent-dynamics.com.

Here is an example of just such a case where an individual, by understanding their Profile, created really significant results in less than six months

Have a great month ahead, Michelle.

The pilots thought the programme was only open to them!

We are running a Pilot Programme on the 15th and 16th December, in Preston, to train and accredit just ten people on Talent Dynamics Profiling.

  • The process for conducting and running a value-based Profile Debriefing session
  • Ensuring your clients understand the value they bring and the best way for them to leverage the Profiles
  • The Talent Dynamics Pathway and how it has helped some of our clients.

The Programme will result in a year-long Licence to use the Talent Dynamics Profiles in your business, with your clients. Participants will be assessed and supported over the course of the two days, and during December, to ensure a level of competence in handling the data and the conversations with clients.

The Licence will run from 1st Jan 2011 until Dec 31st 2011 and can be held in the name of an individual only, not an organisation (if you have several members of your team, only you as participant, will be licensed to do Profile Debriefing).

Supporter Profile smashes salon-opening targets by 400 percent

Talent Dynamics Pathway has unleashed a potential in me and my business that I never even knew existed. I believed Minola Salons could be a strong brand but I hadn’t guessed we would exceed all our targets by 400% in less than five months! We already have plans in place for the whole team to take part in Talent Dynamics Pathway and are getting ready to extend the Minola Salons brand across the UK!” Michelle Bagshaw, Owner/Director, Minola Salons

Why we were asked to work with Michelle from Minola Salons

Michelle was in the process of setting up in business after several years trading as a beauty therapist in another salon and had very little experience in entrepreneurship. The outcomes she wanted were to develop her leadership skills and to create strategies for successfully opening her first salon. The first Minola Salon was opened in June 2010.

What we did

Michelle undertook Step One and Step Two on Talent Dynamics Pathway at the Individual Level. She started to work with her dedicated Performance Consultant to set and create the Enterprise Vision two months before the Salon opened. Michelle was supported during this time through the creation of a very specific and robust strategy, one that resonated with her Talent Dynamics Supporter Profile and with the enterprise she wanted to create.

Michelle’s Performance Consultant worked with her on a monthly basis, supporting her through the implementation of her strategy, challenging her thinking and ensuring that her Enterprise Vision/KPIs were being delivered consistently.

Whom we worked with in the Enterprise

The owner/director of Minola Salons

Programme timings

Michelle had constant access to a Talent Dynamics Pathway Performance Consultant who also held one-to-one consultations on a monthly basis.

How the programme has impacted

Within one month, Michelle had increased retail sales directly by 500%. The Salon smashed its opening targets by 400%. Repeat business from new customers is running at 95%.

Within three months, the Salon had so much demand for business that they took on three new therapists and two receptionists. Opening hours have extended from five to seven days a week and current plans for Christmas trading include 24 hour opening.

Minola is in the process of launching its e-commerce site which is conservatively estimated to add an additional 100% to retail sales in its first three months.

Michelle has now extended the use of Talent Dynamics Pathway to her entire team. Talent Dynamics is running Step One with them as a team in October and we will share a case study of what happens next in April 2011.

Where you do it, is as important as how you do it!

Jane just wanted to get grounded again after a very creative session

Location, location, location — environment is often overlooked and yet is hugely important to enabling flow in your team.

I was surprised recently to meet with a team who confessed that they only meet once a month. They  told me that the meeting, whilst it had a structure and lots of detail, focused on sales figures and profitability mainly, (which is of course hugely important to review!) Its purpose was to highlight where team members were being ‘effective’ or ‘ineffective’  in meeting their targets. This meeting was always held in the board room, a very dark and clean cut room

Whilst the meeting worked well for checking hard measures and performance, (the company was profitable with a solid performance record) the creative members of the team were struggling with this very ‘Steel’ based meeting and had no place to express their new ideas or innovations. In fact, when new ideas were raised at this meeting, they were cut off immediately as being, not well enough thought through. Innovation as a result was very low in the company.

The most productive environment for one Frequency can be counter-productive for another. This was certainly true for the innovators in this team. The Steel based environment was great for checking the monthly measures against and certainly has a place as part of the monthly routine.

We shared with them however, the importance of setting specific environments for specific Frequencies to flourish. To encourage Creativity and Innovation for example, the environment requires to be quirky and constantly changing. This really helps to spark creativity and bold action. Each of the frequencies requires a different environment.

  1. Have a think about the meetings you hold with your team.
  2. Be clear in establising what is their purpose and try to stick to one outcome per meeting.
  3. Check which frequency the meeting relates to on the Talent Dynamics Pathway and choose an appropriate environment to suit.

Let us know the results you see, when you make some changes with where you do it…
