What is Dynamiqe?

Dynamiqe is a research based model of entrepreneurship.

Screenshot-2015-09-18-16.21.52The model places you in one of four main profiles, each with its own detailed description of strengths and possible risks, and developmental guidance

It enables you to compare your current profile to your target profile

Dynamiqe provides an analysis in relation to three key elements of entrepreneurship

Mindset:

The framework you use to perceive the world shaped by your identity, motivation, values, and goals

Social preferences:

How you relate to others, and the extent to which you prefer to work independently or in collaboration with others

Work patterns:

How you approach your work as an entrepreneur and the extent to which you work methodically or in a more intuitive, flexible way.

Throughout, you will be presented with dilemmas as these factors are often contradictory and require you to make the trade off and balances that are right for you.

What Dynamiqe is NOT?

It is important to stress that it is NOT a personality profiling instrument. People with similar personalities might have very different mindsets. For example, your social relationships might change depending on the situation you are in.

The results from the survey are likely to change over time as you meet different situations and work with various people. Dynamiqe helps you navigate through this and chart a course that gets you to where you want to be.

Dynamiqe is NOT a test or competition. The only good result is one that is a really accurate reflection of where you are and where you are going. We encourage you to complete Dynamiqe repeatedly, and experiment with developing new facets of yourself.

Why use Dynamiqe?

It is a great tool to use with your team, or to share with your mentor. Simply, it is a basis for you to think and reflect about how you develop as an entrepreneur.

Understanding Thematic Differences

Here is more about the example:

It is not illogical to support two different teams, but it is unlikely. Even if you don’t support either team, there are certain moments – like a cup final – where you just have to choose one or the other!

Rather like changing your mindset and behaviours, supporting a different team is challenging. Like football, entrepreneurship tends to generate strong passions either way.

Using the Questionnaire

In this Questionnaire, you will be asked to compare a pair of words that best describe your profile as an entrepreneur, now and in the future.

Each word is indicative of a different entrepreneurial profiles and suggests a different pattern or emphasis in mindset or behaviour. These words are not logical opposites. In theory they might both be true. However, they are thematic differences, or contrasting values, which are often hard to reconcile in practice. .

Try to identify and differentiate what is important to you as an entrepreneur.What is distinct about you?

If you continuously click in the middle, as your profile will be become “neutral” and will be very hard to interpret. The chart that results might look as if you’re good at everything and there is nothing you need to change!

These will be choices that you make. So be honest with yourself!

Think about evidence. Recollect recent events of key moments:

  • What do you really do when things get tough and you have to choose?
  • What impact do you really have?
  • What have others told you (or not told you)?

Think about the challenges ahead:

  • How will you need to change as you meet new and different situations?

If you are not sure, ask for feedback from trusted colleagues or a mentor who can give you an honest perspective.

Remember, the more real you are with yourself, the more valuable Dynamiqe will be for you.
