Business Psychologist & Member of Silvermaple Team
Partnering with the Project Lift teams to develop the on-line tools and the Career Conversations.

Project Lift has from the outset been defined by its openness to ideas, creative partnerships and fun, trust-based relationships.  The focus has always been on taking a personalised and flexible approach towards those that are interested in gaining insight and support into their careers.  As a result, we too have all been encouraged to contribute our skills and experience where we feel most energised and able to add value.

I have seen and heard first-hand, how powerful the space and insights offered by the Project Lift team can be.  Individuals have shared dreams, fears and visions of their current and future careers that may otherwise have remained unspoken or unknown, even to themselves.   The balance between objective, consistent and fair support for all, whilst also having uniquely personal and necessarily confidential discussions has been a line that I have seen navigated skilfully and sensitively.

Talent Management can all too easily become an overly complex, regimented experience.  Project Lift continues to demonstrate that a combination of the right values, commitment and a dash of good humour, can deliver a very human and individualised experience for all that choose to take that next step.
