Mirus Emerging Leader Program – Follow up with Tanvi

July 9, 2020 | People at Mirus Australia

Tanvi is an emerging / future leader at Mirus Australia and recently participated in the Mirus Emerging Leaders Program.

The 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.

As a follow up, we asked Tanvi:

(1) What is the biggest challenge facing you and/or leadership teams today?

The challenge to leadership today is adaptability to change. The biggest change in recent times has been the impact of the pandemic on our work style, structure, and communication. The leaders have a critical role today to ensure their teams remain motivated, engaged, resilient, and maintain the organisation culture while working remotely. 

(2) What advice would you give someone going into a leadership position for the first time? 

Be authentic, be genuine, really work on your listening skills, and be empathetic.

(3) What are you going to do to ensure you continue to grow and develop as a leader? 

Read books by world class leaders, learn from experienced leaders around me, seek feedback from my colleagues, work on my weaknesses and further develop my strengths.

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.
