Spotlight Campaign #1: Meet Louise
Hi, I am Louise Diedericks and I have the privilege of heading up the Training Development and Technologies division of Resource Group. I joined Resource Group in August 2018, upon which the Training Development team consisted of 2 members. 6 months later, the team is 17 members strong, and outgrown the office at the Kemble hanger, and now moved to the control tower at the Cotswolds airport.
I come from a corporate background, mainly in the Food & Beverage Industry. I completed my Diploma in Culinary Arts at the Prue Leigh college of Food and Wine, and cheffed for 10 years, working the long hard shifts in the kitchens and banqueting corporations after moving into Management. I obtained my Honours degree in Business Management, which led me to heading up the training and human resources division for Bidvest, where my passion for Training Development and Learning was born. I led the development and implementation of full qualification, Management and leadership programmes, to smaller skills programmes and life lesson skills, and launched the online academy.
When it comes to skillset, it always feels to me that most people will say the same/similar thing, ~ timekeeping, leadership, entrepreneurial, planning, innovative etc, whilst I believe I do poses these skills, I believe, that my background in working from the bottom of the food chain, to where I am today, has given me the ability and skill to identify talent and ability in individuals and mentor and guide individuals into being the best they can. Similar to the legend of “The David” of Michelangelo ~ according to legend, when a young boy asked the great Renaissance artist, Michelangelo why he was working so hard hitting a block of marble, the artist replied, “young man, there is an angel inside this rock, and I am setting him free”
In my opinion, attitude exceeds skills, as one can be taught any skills with the right attitude. Having the right people, with great attitudes, allows one to develop a team of skilled people, who complement each other’s strengths and weakness’s and allows one to build an organisation which is positive, productive and successful.
