Helping People Understand People

Insight across all stages of the business life cycle

Your team is made up of complex people in a busy world. But in the right environment, with the right training, they can be endlessly creative, energetic and committed.

Recruit Insight

Whether you're hiring your first (or your fiftieth) team member, we'll help you find the right talent for the job.

Team Insight

Have the right people, but not sure if they're performing at their best? We have tools to help you understand your team.

Leader Insight

Want to level up your leadership skills and become more effective and empowering as a manager? Leader Insight is for you.

Culture Insight

Setting the right tone for your business is key to success - and our culture diagnostics will help you get to the heart of any issues.

Got problems? Got potential?
Get Insights.


At Talent Insight Solutions, we help in two key areas:

  •  solving your people problems
  •  igniting your team’s potential

Generating true ‘lightbulb moments’ for your team that boost your business to the next level takes science, experience and perception. That’s where we can help.


Kylie Ellwood

Kylie comes from a corporate and small business background and is at the top of her field as one of only 10 Extended DISC Master Trainers in Australia. There’s nothing she won’t help you to do that she hasn’t done herself – from leading teams of staff to refining sales strategies, uncovering human behaviours and motivations, and improving skills through training. 


Following years in corporate and sales roles, Kylie launched out as a business coach in 2009 with her business, Designer Mindset. This business grew to become Talent Insight Solutions, evolving from coaching to consulting, and now partnering with businesses to develop their teams to thrive.  


How would Kylie explain her job? 
“I love seeing the individuals in a team and helping those individuals to understand and adapt their behaviours and emotions. This has huge flow-on effects to the team and the organisation as a whole – and the tools we use to do this give a really accurate, data-backed picture. Once you have the right information, there’s so much we can do with it – from mapping and designing the right training to refining business strategy and making sure your team is set up for success.” 


In addition to her Extended DISC Master Trainer qualification, Kylie is an NLP Master Practitioner, an Institute of Social and Emotional Intelligence (ISEI) Certified Coach, and a FinxS Master Trainer. 


Kylie is an active member for the International Centre for Democratic Partnerships (ICDP) Pacific Dialogues in Brisbane and Fiji and a member of the ‘Mobile Me’ project to support mobility for inaccessibility.  


Dr Anna Blackman

Dr Anna Blackman has an outstanding academic background. Over the last two decades, Anna has extensively studied, taught and published about business coaching, human resources and business management, plus rural and regional leadership. Online teaching and learning, as part and parcel of modern university life, is also one of Anna’s specialties.  


In 2020, Anna left academia and her Associate Professor role behind and joined Talent Insight Solutions full-time to pursue the practical, applied side of her expertise. 


How would Anna explain her job? 

“I’ve always loved the hands-on, industry-based side of academic work, where we get to apply the theory to actual practice. Working with businesses of all sizes now means I get to use my talents in a whole new way, thinking about how best to develop people and link them up with the skills they need for success.” 


Anna holds a PhD in business coaching, and is an Extended DISC Practitioner, an AHRI Certified Academic Fellow, a Cairns Institute Fellow, and the Vice President of Research for the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) Asia Pacific Region.  


Anna is also a member of the International Centre for Democratic Partnerships (ICDP), and is a member of the Universities Australia’s Executive Women Group. 

We work with your team and talents

As your business grows and expands, Talent Insight Solutions are here to help. Whether it’s finding the right people to bring on board, refining and inspiring your team, or diving deep into culture improvement, we have the tools, techniques and experience to get the job done. 


We’ll give you the tools you need to bring the right people on board, saving time and trouble. 


Not all teams work well together from the start. We’ll use our experience and external perspective to troubleshoot your teams and shape them into a powerhouse.


Leaders are constantly learning – about themselves and about how to lead. We’ll help guide that learning so you can guide your staff.


A great business culture doesn’t happen by accident. Be intentional, and we’ll help you build a culture that drives your business forward. 


Thankyou Anna and Kylie. It was a very challenging and rewarding experience for me. I have taken so much away with me.
