Just doing what you’re told is not enough

Words from: Thomas Friedman

Dude, where’s my job?

Scan down this list: On a scale of 1 to 10, rate each skill in terms of your mastery of that skill (1 being low skilled, 10 being highly skilled). Tally up the results and you have your development plan over the coming year. Why is this important? Because the 4th Industrial Revolution is upon us and these are the skills you’ll need if you want to thrive in the new world of work. “The f...

What leadership requires

There are many good descriptions of leadership out there. I like this one from Simon Sinek: “Leadership requires two things: a vision of the world that does not yet exist and the ability to communicate it.” I like it because it distills the essence of what it is to be a leader. I would add a third element to his description to make it more complete and that is: …the ability to ge...

If your offering isn’t remarkable it’s invisible

Yes, I’m re-reading Seth Godin‘s book – Purple Cow. When I first got on the Internet, it was easy to get noticed because there simply weren’t that many people on it compared to today. Now the game is saturated with players. How do you get noticed? How do you get people’s attention and hold their attention long enough to start a genuine conversation? Notice I said genu...

Find a way that works for you

How to focus on what’s important, not just what’s urgent. I have to admit, I struggle with this. I’m of the personality type that works on projects in short bursts. I put in the minimum amount of effort planning things, preferring instead to work with loose notes and outlines. To do the ‘ready, fire, aim’ thing. And so what ends up happening is, I put off important things until t...

A reflection on learning

As learning professionals, I believe our role is to act in the interest of learning. Sometimes that’s fun. Sometimes that’s difficult. Oftentimes is a blend of both.  If you think about what we do as learning professionals i.e. physically change the neurological connections in people’s brains – that’s a difficult task, but that’s how real learning happens. Your learners are likely to want yo...

Shared information is power

General Ann Dunwoody served 37 years in the U.S. Army. She was the first woman in U.S. Military history to achieve a four-star officer rank. She’s now joined the board of Automattic. In an interview with Matt Mullenweg, she shared some insights on global leadership. I loved what she had to say on leadership: Matt: We’re excited to have you onboard, General Dunwoody. It’s interesting — at Automatti...

Hello world!

I’m starting a fresh new blog for my learning, performance, training, and coaching activities. Things will look sparse for a while and that’s ok. I read somewhere that when you launch a project that’s a slow burn i.e. will take time to build an audience for, you should opt for the minimum viable product. In other words, don’t pursue perfection before you launch. Go with the...
