Personal Pitch

A commitment to helping others is one of my core values. I prioritise connecting with people in both my career and personal life, so a job where I'm in constant contact with a variety of individuals is energising for me. I'm happy in any position where I get to interact with others and provide a service to them. With more than 10 years of experience in a number of diverse roles—Multimedia Design, Brand Communications, Project Management, Marketing & Sales—I have managed accounts and projects within the following industries: F&B (Cold Stone Creamery, T Bun, Naza Group F&B Division, and so much more), Telecommunications (DiGi, Buzz me & M8 by Enabling Asia, FRiENDi, YES, U Mobile), Healthcare / Pharmaceutical (Abbott), Hardware & Software (Dell), Insurance (Gibraltar BSN). In my free time, you'll find me advocating for a social cause, singing, dancing, or laughing—what's life without comedy and treating it like a party? ;)

How she could be more effective

    She could better unite others to her decisions that more involve those around her before beginning.
    She would benefit from taking a little distance before taking action, demonstrating more reflection.
    She could concentrate for longer on a subject and avoid, as much as possible, getting distracted in her work context.

Drive

What motivates her the most ...

Being rewarded
Having an attractive remuneration
Having influence

And what motivates her less

Excel everyday
Create new things
Seeks competition

The way she manages her energy

The motivating factors that Lauralyn Silva prioritises are those of stability. She uses her energy to develop standards and points of reference on which to rely. She enjoys being able to establish a certain regularity in the way she manages her work. She avoids making decisions that are general uncertain in her situation.

The activities she prefers

PROMOTE
Interact

Lauralyn Silva particularly enjoys being able to invest herself in the promotion of a job. She values asserting a product or a project to external representatives or her team. She draws much satisfaction when she can produce a presentation or sell something.

SUPPORT
Interact

It is important for Lauralyn Silva to have an activity that allows her to support people around her. Indeed, she largely prioritises helping others over competition. She enjoys, in this sense, creating links and prioritising cohesion among the team.

ORGANISE
Act

As a priority, organisation is not an activity that Lauralyn Silva needs to do. She still tries, however, to give a minimum amount of structure and standards to the work that she has to complete. It is, therefore, something that she enjoys doing as long as it remains a secondary part of the job.

What this means

Lauralyn Silva is a manager who challenges people while still looking after them. She thinks it's important to value her employees by guiding their progress and rewarding their success.

How should she be managed?

Lauralyn Silva expects a manager to be interested, above all, in the well-being of the team. She needs someone to listen, be empathetic and who takes into account the limits of each one. The leader who inspires her and whom she trusts is a leader who is interested in the person and who is not irritated by results. She is motivated by team work and collective development.

The culture in which she blossoms

Flexibility Control Relationships Results Collaboration Innovation Organization Competition
Preferred culture
Secondary culture

What environment will she thrive in?

Lauralyn Silva is able to blossom in very different cultures. There is no standard working style that absolutely suits her. She finds advantages and drawbacks in every work environment. It is not the company culture that influences her commitment, but rather, the capacity of the position to provide what she seeks through the work. If she finds her principle motivating factors, the structure in which she develops does not matter as she is capable of adapting and being satisfied.


brain

Her way of thinking

Preferred tasks Complex

Capacity to comprehend new and strategic subjects.

Decision-making Prudent

She takes the time to make most of her resources.

Learning style Innovate

Easily integrates and tests new concepts herself.

Problems she can deal with

Brilliant from an intellectual point of view, Lauralyn Silva tends to easily adapt concepts that were initially foreign. She is able to understand new or complex subjects without needing to see them in practice. This means she can develop her skills by researching and reading about a diverse range of subjects. She needs to be intellectually stimulated by her work, without which she may get bored quickly.

Lauralyn Silva's spontaneous temperament leads her to learn by testing concepts and techniques herself. For her, the best way to acquire new knowledge is to try, develop understanding through failure, then start again. She sometimes lacks patience. To integrate new ideas or new knowledge, she first needs to experiment by herself.
