Creating people impact
with Nadia Taylor | Chief Executive Officer
We spoke to our CEO, Nadia Taylor about the key to 40 years in business and what inspires her.
What do you enjoy most about working at Mapien?
The people. We are a relationship based business, inside and out. Mapiens are great people. They are super smart with diverse backgrounds and skills which are all linked by a shared belief in enabling the success of organisations through pragmatic people solutions. We have a lot of fun and we love our clients and the many people we deal with in workplaces across Australia. After 24 years in this business, I’m still fascinated by all the interesting work people do. I am grateful we work across so many industries and workplaces allowing me to witness the kaleidoscope of people at work.
What do you think is key to 40 years in business?
As a business you can’t stand still. If you try to keep doing the same thing in the same way year after year, you will go backwards. Creating a sustainable business with longevity requires an anti-fragility mindset throughout the organisation.
What drives you to do what you do?
My purpose is to help people to see perspective and possibility. In a business context I focus this purpose on coaching leaders to enable the success of their organisation through their people. In this way, by shaping the experience people have in workplaces – places they spend so much of their lives, I can help shape humanity for the better. Clarity of my purpose and the impact I can make in the world helps me maintain the energy and courage I need to be the Leader I want to be.
