November Spotlight: Maritoni Maghirang
Title: GDC Senior Manager
Location: Manila, Philippines
Been with Collaborative for: 5 Years
Why did you choose Collaborative?When Theory of Mind Australia had been acquired by Collaborative Solutions I was introduced to its core values, specifically collaboration. I found Collaborative as a place where each and every individual’s contribution matters in achieving a common goal. I saw the teamwork in action and the outcomes are a success. They are not only focused on achieving company success, but they also make sure people have a strong work-life balance as one of their core values.
What does your day-to-day look like in your role?During the pandemic where work is done remotely, my day is filled with one meeting to another discussing project works and internal works. Overseeing and managing the team’s deliverables, issues, or concerns can be quite challenging at times, but with good collaboration and integrity, things are handled better.
What do you love about your job?Leadership is not my strongest pursuit but working with the best people has helped me acquire the skills needed in my role. I love working with the team as they not only learn from me, but I also learn from them. Every day is an opportunity to learn something new and grow.
What does it take to be successful in your role?I would say empathy is one of the most important factors. Gain a deeper understanding of what other people feel and their needs, see things from their point of view. Respect for people, being able to listen and connect with them, being cognizant of their time and capabilities, and being a resource of knowledge and guidance.
How does Collaborative help you grow as a person and in your career?
Collaborative has great leaders who are always supportive of me driving my own career path and have guided me every step of the way. Collaborative also has a lot of opportunities for learning and development which has helped me grow in my career and as a person.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be?Time travel, go back in time. I have no intention of altering the past but hoping I can go back and see people that I can no longer see now that I miss dearly.
What’s your favorite TV show at the moment?This sounds weird, I don’t often cook but I love watching cooking shows, Barefoot Contessa, Rachel Ray, and Giada De Laurentiis 😊.
