Sonia Mayor understands that the way that people in your organisation talk and listen to each other is directly related to the way they successfully achieve outcomes for their clients. A key aspect in her work is to create a space for practitioners to slow down and inquire into their working practice. Only in a space where it is safe to question our thinking and opinions is it possible to learn at sufficient depth.
Increasingly, we are in a culture of doing ‘more for less’ with an expectation to deliver high quality services in times of economic uncertainty. Yet some exceptional organisations are flourishing in this climate and, when questioned, consistently cite their focus is on creating a learning environment that engages and motivates their employees. In order to achieve this Sonia pays attention to three areas: relationships, reflection and resilience.
