Creating people impact
with Vanessa Moran | Consultant
We spoke to Vanessa Moran about what it's like working at Mapien and how she makes a difference.
How do you like to make a difference?
I want people to love the work they do, and if I can apply psychology and behavioural sciences to help achieve that, I’ll love what I do too! Most of us spend more time at work than anywhere else. Our work life is a big part of our life, and I like to use organisational psychology to make that space fulfilling. The ‘how’ is bringing together data analytics, diagnostics and evidence-based tools to design interventions, training or coaching. The goal is always to lift the employee experience and at the same time as improving performance and organisational commitment.
What do you enjoy most about working at Mapien?
Contributing to something truly impressive. Everyone at Mapien takes pride in their work, and we walk the talk. I’m very proud to say we model and practice what we preach in terms of values based leadership and building an inclusive culture, which means I genuinely enjoy being at work, and its also its inspiring and rewarding to work around people with integrity and commitment to putting theory into practice.
How do you create people impact?
By designing solutions to fit the problem. Best practice is best fit. When we take a moment to hear about our clients challenges, their culture, their history, and then take a multidisciplinary view point, and a general open mindedness to understand the problem we can find the biggest lever for the biggest impact.
Vanessa is a Consultant in our Organisational Development team based in Brisbane. She commenced with Mapien as part of her psychology placement, before moving into a permanent role in 2021.
