Over 18 years as a professional, I’ve come to realize that my interest and passion are specifically in learning and talent development. Working on matters related to people and performance; exploring human potential and pushing possibilities. I work to understand and drive change within systems, to develop contextual and adaptive strategies to steer the system in the desireddirection and then align people solutions to execute that strategy. I like being an enabler and a driving force for change, and not simply observing or responding to it.
Over the years, I have developed a rather rich professional background and diverse set of specialist skills. These includetalent and leadership development strategies and products, organisational development, performance management and support, training design, development anddelivery, implementing technology as an enabler, to name a few. These skills have been further enriched by multicultural experiences drawn from studying and working in different countries across Asia-Pacific, EMEA, and North America. The cumulative effect of the multicultural experiences has given me a perspective onbehaviour, organizations and the current evolution of work that is unique, one which I’ve come to truly cherish.
I believe we have a lot of under-leveraged knowledge and insights into the matters of culture, behaviour,andcapability facing organisations. Where I see real opportunities for organisationsto outperform is integrated development strategy with aligned execution– how do we ensure that all our activities across groups, units, andfunctions are working effectively together to result in a collective impact greater than the sum of the parts? At the moment, I see and continue to read about how different, possibly brilliant, individual people products and practices within the same organization cancel the potential positive effects of one and another for lack of strategic alignment and coordinated execution. This is what really interests me now; not simply the perfection of the individual people products and practices but the alignment and integration of systems of brilliant people products and services towards achieving that winning culture that enables the organisationalagility to develop capabilities required to create and execute successful strategies.
