Sylvia Baldock – Talent Dynamics for Young People Performance Consultant
I had the pleasure of addressing 24 Brunel Graduates from many different walks and stages of life at their pilot of ‘Brunel Alumni Business Development Week’.
They were all profiled in advance and were fascinated and excited by the insights they gained on the day.
Splitting them into…

Here’s a story from TDYP Australia from Dianne Caldwell – thanks for Sharing Di 🙂
When I first spoke to Rauri, he was 18 years old, working part-time with his Ju Jitsu trainer teaching students and supplementing his income by working in a laboring job he didn’t particularly enjoy.
So I asked him what he would truly love…

Thanks to the wonderful generosity and sponsorship from two Swindon-based companies, The Brunel Shopping Centre and Thirdline IT, we ran our second Work Ready Program in July in Swindon. The Brunel donated their board room for the event which meant that once again, our young people had to show up to a place of work….

So many of our young people today struggle to articulate just who they are and that’s no surprise really as it’s not exactly something we teach in school. We rarely are asked to define our identity much deeper than our name and perhaps role in a team, or later business, and so when faced with…

When Emily came to me recently it was because her confidence was at an all time low, her self esteem in shreds, and she’d lost all vision and direction. All because of a bullying boss.
Emily had absolutely loved helping bring up her baby brother, now 5 years old, and although not academically brilliant, Emily was…

So, how will you tackle the chocolate rabbit which some kind soul (hopefully) is going to present you with this Easter? Are you someone who likes to leave the foil on, exposing only the teeny tiny bit you’re going to bite into? Or are you a complete foil-taker-offer kind of a person, allowing yourself the…

No, not a scenario straight out of the latest TV crime drama. I’m talking about your frame of mind, the importance of getting that right and nine times out of ten, the swiftness with which that can be accomplished once you’ve got an end goal in sight. But whilst that may sound and actually is,…

Communication! Something we take totally for granted a lot of the time, right? Of course right. After all, isn’t it something we all do, all day, every day, and goodness knows there are enough ways to do it. We text, we talk, we use social media, so we can all do it. Right?
Actually, no! Because…
At Inner Flame, we work with many young people who didn't thrive in formal education and consequently have developed a low sense of self-worth.Talent Dynamics gives them a great opportunity to recognise their individual strengths and interests, and often an understanding as to why they didn't enjoy school. The profile itself, though, is far less valuable than the coaching opportunity which offers the opportunity to really explore who the young person is and what they can offer the world. These conversations can be magical.
