“When I was asked to take part in this programme I was honoured and excited the company saw my potential to be a future leader in the organisation”, says Lauren Broome, HR analyst for Aalberts integrated piping systems in North America.
“The assessment helped to identify those areas where I am confident and excel most, while highlighting opportunities for personal and professional development that would enable me to build skills helpful in my day-to-day work. The programme taught me the essentials of being a leader and how to be more mindful in viewing and responding as a leader. The information we learned helped to expand my business knowledge, helped to develop career goals and work towards effective leadership. The course made me more aware of communicating effectively with different personality types, ensuring that everyone is able to contribute, feel heard and that their ideas and feedback is valued. It helped to educate me on better communication methods and how to more professionally receive and respond to feedback. It also laid the foundation on how to view situations with a leadership mentality.
By working to constantly improve these skills and apply them in my day-to-day work, I feel I will only continue to grow professionally within the company as a valued member of the team and potential future leader. The programme gave me a greater sense of investment within the company and further strengthened my level of commitment and passion for my work and the success of the company I work for.”
