The Talent Dynamics Assessment Tool for Young People
An Assessment tool supporting Young People to make Career and study choices, identify their natural gifts, and develop confidence and self esteem.
Time to Start Thinking about Career Choices?
The Good news is that the world of work is changing. Choosing a career is no longer a once off event. Your generation is entering a time in which people shift jobs regularly, where new kinds of jobs are being created all the time, and you are encouraged, and often required, to seek work that makes you happy.
Employers are requiring that new employees will be in ‘Flow’ as there are direct links between innovation, productivity and your level of satisfaction and fulfillment.
Now more than ever it is vital for you to identify the roles and activities that are your natural strengths, and that will inspire you in your career. These roles will stay the same, no matter if you shift from one industry to another, or change the direction of your career.
You may love creating new things, or love networking and engaging with people. Or prefer to figure out the systems or work through the numbers. Once you know the activities and roles that will bring you success, you can choose the industry or direction in which to apply them.
The First Step to building a career in the new world of work is to find out your natural strengths, and the roles and activities that will lead to you being in Flow. This is the Talent Dynamics for Young People advantage.

Education is the ultimate key to life and career success and you won’t catch me arguing with that truth in this lifetime. My parents drilled that into my head a long time ago and I’m sure yours did too. But from my experience in the working world, having a good education alone is no longer enough.
- understand how you relate to people, and be comfortable with who you are around others
- know what your strengths are, and understand why some things come naturally to you
- give yourself permission to focus on your strengths
- see a path forward into your life that excites you and leads to success
Be Your Own Superhero
One of the best ways to think about the T.D.Y.P. profile is to compare it to superhero’s.
Superman has a bunch of stuff he can do, and does it well!
Spiderman has a different bunch of stuff he can do.
Now just imagine if Superman spent all his time trying to shoot spider webs out his hands. Not only would it not work, but he would look real silly standing there trying to do it.
Same with all of us. Find your superpower, and play that game. Stop trying to play the game of your best friends, the other young people you see around you or the way people tell you you SHOULD BE.
Quite simple: Be your own Superhero.
