Dynamo Joe’s Story: Talent Dynamics for Young People

By Teejay Dowe – Talent Dynamics for Young People

When I profiled Joe he was 8 years old, a little younger than I would normally profile but bright, nearly 9 and eager to learn he was an ideal young man to work with.

Joe’s mum had been profiled through Talent  Dynamics and discovered that she was a Deal Maker it had given her so much insight that she was keen to discover more, especially more about her son who was mixed race and about to be moving schools.

She was concerned that he might be bullied, therefore wanting to find out how she could help him to fit in.

Creator Profile

Joe came out as a Creator profile, tons of Dynamo energy bursting to get out, a lively, high energy little boy, a pleasure to speak with.

His mum thought she knew him but after the debrief told me that she had learned so much more about him and was so proud of the answers that he gave to the questions I asked him.

She really felt that she understood him at a different level. She was so impressed that she was going to pick the next school he would go to by matching the way that they taught with the way that he naturally loves to learn. Dynamo energy loves to learn in a visual way.

2 weeks later I was at a business networking event and Joe’s mum was there. She came over to me all smiles and exited to share Joe’s progress with me. She said ‘TeeJay, I have to share this with you, Since Joe was profiled and I learned so much, homework now – piece of cake!’ Of course intrigued I said ‘Do tell!’

Homework

She said ‘Well Joe came home from school this week with  homework that he really did not want to do. He had to write out the instructions about how to make a cup of tea.’

‘Boring!’

She said ‘I was just about to say, oh, come on, let’s sit down and plan this out together…when I realised that my way of doing it not his! I almost sucked my words back in and instead said ‘Have you ever seen mummy make a cup of tea?’ He said ‘No’

She said’ Ok, go and get the ipad, then you can record mummy making a cup of tea. You can play it back and instead of writing a list of instructions you can pause it at each step and draw it out to give instructions’

He loved it! Homework was done quickly, he loved every minute of it and now homework will never be a challenge again! Mum simply knows how to engage him in his world

Teejay Dowe will be leading one of the Break- Out sessions at the Trust Conference on September 11th.
