Experts in guiding and coaching people in realising their best Career Goals. We transform your desired pathway from dream to reality
Hello my name is Laura Greene and I am passionate about supporting people to succeed in their Careers.
After graduating from the University of Limerick with a Masters of Science in Work and Organisational Psychology I moved to Loughrea, Co.Galway where I now live.
I have spent more than 10 years in Industry working in the areas of Psychometric assessment, HR and Recruitment. I am also a qualified Life Coach. My greatest expertise is in the area of assessing if people have the right personality for their chosen career.
My passion is to help people find the type of work that they love to do. I help my clients understand their personality type and interaction preferences to help them make career choices that are right for them…..why is this important?
Do you know how much of your waking life you will spend at work? The answer is 92,120 hours over your lifetime. Put more simply you will spend 50% of your total waking hours at work during any given working day. Make sure you are spending your life wisely.
The majority of the Millennial workers cited a clear path to grow in their role is the most important factor and motivator to keep them engaged. If people can see the organisation is willing to invest in their development they are much more likely to be engaged, enthusiastic participants in their work and willing to go the extra mile when needed.
Career conversations can often have surprising results. If managers have open honest dialogue with their teams, they may find people have ambitions they previously hadn’t voiced or hidden skills and talents they are not using in their current role.
With many companies already struggling to fill key roles, now is the ideal time to find out what latent talents may be available within the business – and see how individual aspirations can best be matched with corporate priorities.
One of the biggest challenges organisations face is operating in an uncertain, volatile climate where the rules of the game can change overnight. New competitors may suddenly emerge, technology develops and disrupts the way services are delivered, customers drive demand for new products….
What this means is the skills the organisation has today are not necessarily the ones they will need tomorrow.
Employees of the future will need to have highly developed generic skill sets – project management, problem solving, the ability to analyse complex data alongside soft skills – that can be applied in different circumstances.
If organisations want their people to be adaptable, they need to help them develop these competencies – and will of course also be keeping an eye on trends to see what other specialist skills employees might need as the business moves forward.
Formal career plans no longer exist in the way they used to – and when the game is changing so quickly, it can be difficult to plan for succession next year yet alone in five years’ time. However, that doesn’t mean that HR teams should give up on succession planning altogether.
Having regular conversations about people’s aspirations and investing in their development will give organisations at least a fighting chance of having the right people in the right place at the right time, and today’s HR systems should make visualising – and acting on – performance and potential data much simpler too.
The most productive conversations about careers are those that centre around the kind of work people find most stimulating, the skills they’d like to develop and where their future interests lie. Being armed with this kind of knowledge helps the business stay ‘nimble’ and ready to respond to whatever is around the corner.
Nurturing internal talent can help reduce the costs of external hiring, as you’ll be more likely to fill vacancies with current staff, who also already understand the organisation and its values. Of course, sometimes recruiting talent from elsewhere is necessary, so it’s important to position your company as a desirable employer.
People talk – and word will soon get around that your business is one that takes developing its people seriously. Employees often share their experiences online, whether that’s on Glassdoor or on social media.
With unemployment being at its lowest since the 1970s, talent is at a premium once again and having a visibly positive approach to career development will give organisations an edge in attracting the best and brightest people.
