I highly appreciate how Mavis takes the time to check in on my progress at work. I heed Mavis’s advice and rely on her expertise that helps me realise the appropriate compensation I should be receiving given my level of experience and qualifications. She also lets me know that it is important to check on my own progress at work, and think ahead – ‘where do I want to go?, ‘am I on the path to getting there?’, ‘how is my pacing?’, ‘is there a quicker route?” or ‘is there more to learn?”. With this, I am constantly aware that my decisions at work today will impact my future tremendously, and I have to be mindful in taking the steps that best serve to achieve the future I want.
She also gives me useful advice on how to approach delicate topics at work such as misunderstandings between colleagues/ superiors, which have been proven effective. Mavis listens to my worries and together we map out the various areas we have to look at in order to broach the topic to a superior at my work place. After speaking with Mavis, clarifying my doubts and ironing out all details, I feel confident to express myself with tact and professionalism.
