Here are at Minerva, we sometimes get the chance to share our experiences from our own professional careers. When I make decisions in my own career, I’m always reminded of the importance of this. I seek others’ advice, rely on input from mentors/colleagues, and review others’ decisions who have a similar career path. In other words, I try not to make decisions on my input alone. And I think this is helpful professional advice but also pretty good life advice. The skills required and learned for successful HR consulting can take one far personally and professionally.
Minerva’s Journey into HR Consulting
This interview also provides some insight into our journey as we developed Minerva as an HR consulting firm, pulling from the science of Industrial-Organizational Psychology. Because many are unfamiliar with Industrial-Organizational Psychology, we hope to share new information.
Interviews like this allow us to share more about what we do. You’ll get an idea of the type of services we provide and what the science of Industrial-Organizational Psychology has to offer organizations.
