Vision, mission and what can you do!
We will spend over 70.000 hours at work during our lives.
Imagine if we spent all those hours feeling safe, able to be fully ourselves and we knew our contributions mattered!
Well that's my vision!
MY MISSION is to make work a better place for people and to transform the employee experience. I want work to be a place where everyone can be their one true self, where people can feel safe and where people can find purpose in what they do. Feeling like our work matters should not be something only a few people attain, but it should be the norm for everyone.
As a millennial leader, I firmly believe that the corporate world needs a change in leadership and we need to transform the employee experience. The management style that has preceded my generation no longer work with today's reality and we need to look at our workforce in a new way.
I believe in framing jobs and responsibilities around both the individual (skills and personality) and the tasks at hand.
New role models
I believe the new leaders struggle to find their place as leaders as they lack role models they can identify with.
I believe leaders need to understand each employee’s. motivation, strengths and shortcomings to enable people to thrive and grow.
I believe we need more leaders who lead with authenticity, empathy, humility and care for their employees.
I believe we need to drastically increase the value we attribute to soft skills and emotional intelligence, especially for people in leadership position.
I believe in putting people before deliverables.
Changing leadership in the corporate world is no small task. It will take time and a lot of effort, but I want to be part of the process and part of the solution. We will change the way we lead through multiple steps and efforts, such as:
What am I doing so far?
Although I am only at the beginning of this journey, I am already pushing hard to promote this change. For now, I am doing so through three key activities:
Through my current role as a People Leader in a large organisation where I promote and showcase a different way to lead my team.
Through my role as a mentor for startup entrepreneurs and marketing professionals, I am focusing on leadership management and building awareness.
Through my content creation I am building an audience to engage and discuss the need for leadership change in the corporate world.
