""Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all” - Aristotle"
I’m part of a dynamic team that delivers Human Resources (HR) services. Currently in a team lead position, I oversee the workflow, motivate the team and ensure the communication between the team and the client is seamless.
I also have the responsibility of being a dedicated career counsellor, I guide counselees to develop their career. Through regular meetings we look at their progress and agree steps that can be taken to help achieve their goals.
The most exciting and rewarding part of my role is to be a part of such a multicultural team. I have been able to learn and understand many cultural differences. This to me is one of the things I enjoy the most about working for Accenture; working for an organisation where by people’s differences aren’t just accommodated but encouraged and given the space to prosper.
The first thing I do is catch up on all emails and organize my day according to my calendar and priorities. The members in my team are split to cover 4 geographical regions: the Nordic countries, France, Italy and Brazil. I get the status from each sub team and report this on web-based client alignment calls harnessing the latest technologies. We work closely with our clients to ensure they are kept up to date with progress and any urgent actions can be discussed.
I support my team throughout the day, providing solutions to any challenges and motivating the team to achieve their best results. At Accenture our people are one of our core values, to mirror this I schedule regular 1 to 1 meetings to understand the team’s thoughts, feelings and any concerns. Afterall, a problem shared is a problem halved!
My spare time is spent dancing! Combining my Cuban roots and culture, I teach Latin dances such as the Salsa and Mambo. “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” So, I’d rather dance!
