The Company: flowprofiler

flowprofiler® was launched in the UK in 2019. It was born from a fascination with personal excellence in the workplace and an ideal that everyone should have the opportunity to demonstrate this excellence in their roles.

Additionally, good employers should be able to expect that their people will bring the best version of themselves to the work that they do.

Seeing people who outperformed their set of circumstances to achieve and excel in unexpected ways is what inspired the spirit of flowprofiler.

“We continue to draw from the concept of flow state because it is Positive, Personal, and Powerful.”

Positive: flow is an aspirational state, it is a better way to live. 

Personal: your personal flow is as unique as you. 

Powerful: small changes result in big impacts and outcomes.

It has been designed for use in recruitment, talent retention, leadership, workplace culture, engagement, and team effectiveness. They deliver through their network of handpicked partners who share their vision of personal excellence at work.

They are looking forward to bringing fflowprofiler®  to the Middle East in mid-2023. In addition, they are continuing their search for the right Partners in the USA and Canada. 

Overcoming the Challenges-

There were two primary challenges for flowprofiler® :

A steep learning curve:

flowprofiler®’s  professional growth curve became very steep. They needed to shift their mindset in the early phases of the development cycle from Management and Development Consultants to that of a tech start-up. 

They needed to learn the language of software developers as well as that of organizational psychologists. flowprofiler® also learned very early that errors can be very costly. This became a big incentive to learn fast.

Launching into the headwind of a pandemic:

Soon after launch, ran into the headwind of the Covid pandemic. Launching what is effectively a tech start-up, during a time when the world was adjusting to disruption and relentless change required some deep thought.

What Triggered The Growth?

The biggest trigger of growth was in early 2022 when the challenges of Covid began to subside in many countries and decision-makers had greater certainty and confidence in the condition of markets.
