Mirus Emerging Leader Program – Meet Joyce Boon

May 18, 2020 | People at Mirus Australia

Joyce Boon has been identified as an emerging / future leader at Mirus Australia and was invited to participate in the Mirus Emerging Leaders Program.

This program has been designed to nurture leadership capabilities, provide education and career development opportunities, and assist team members in becoming the best leader they can possibly be!

The program includes: Module 1 – Understanding the Self Module 2 – Influencing Others Module 3 – Coaching and Driving Performance

Participants also complete course work in-between sessions including utilising our LinkedIn Learning program or reading specific articles to support our blended learning approach. Participants also complete an online HBDI assessment ** which is the foundation of Module 1

1. What are you hoping to gain from this experience?

How to be an effective leader and coach. I would like to understand how to better develop not just myself but to develop the people I coach. I hope to learn what it takes to bring myself from being a manager to a leader.

2. How is “your world” changing?

Increased responsibilities and accountability. By being appointed as an emerging leader of the organisation, you are now even more responsible for the strategy of our organisation and that you are now also responsible for the actions of those that report to you.

3. What tools/process do you use to stay focused when learning something new?

The rule of 3 – humans can only remember 3 things. So if I take on at least 3 things that I learnt and practice – I believe it will be a successful training programme.

4. What is your career highlight to date?

At Mirus – developing a repeatable Workforce Diagnostic and Roster Optimisation practice in the Workforce Team (with the help of other amazing smart humans in Mirus of course!). Overall, career highlight is being promoted to Manager, also in Mirus!

Outside of Mirus, one of my highlights is working at EY on a joint project with the World Bank to develop a new Transportation Strategy for Malaysia – to see that in the government blueprint is pretty cool!

The HBDI® is a powerful psychometric assessment that defines and describes the way you think and process information. It is built on Whole Brain® Thinking, a holistic and complete model for making decisions. This 120-question survey results in a profile of your preferred thinking styles.
